Free speech for all!

Reader comment on item: Post-Mortem on the Muhammad Protests
in response to reader comment: Free speech or a duty to insult?

I would only point out that our culture, right or wrong, allows us do defame any religious institution. We may not approve of crosses in urine or Mary in sh-t, but it's "legal". You would grant Islam a special status because they are vicious and brutal? That's not how freedom works. At least not in my America!
