Teaching hatred of America

Reader comment on item: [Beltway Snipers]: Converts to Violence?

Submitted by Bette Solomon (United States), Oct 25, 2002 at 13:08

I do not understand why it is illegal to yell "Fire" in a crowded theater but not to teach about those who wish to facilitate the destruction of America. This is FREEDOM OF RELIGION?? But you can't have a Manger Scene in the City Park?

In Turkey (and perhaps some other Middle Eastern countries?) it is illegal to be a radical Islamicist. The Turks are on the right track. We should be much more alert about this in this country -- if we want to continue to exist.
