Waco and crazy people

Posted By on November 2, 2006

Okay, so I watched the documentary about Waco I talked about here. I posted about it in the community as well, which led to a discussion about the FLDS (Fundamentalist Mormon splinter group), where I found myself defending them on the grounds of freedom.

And, he cross posted to his personal LJ, so I can get heckled

Notable quotes are:

“I've always thought that dude was creepy and annoying.”

and

“that dude's a fucking tool.”

As quoted in SmallestMinority, “Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle”

Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It’s worth it. It’s a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else’s rights, because if you don’t there is no one to defend yours. – MaxedOutMama
