They don't have to be, but how many Satanists are going to waste their time pushing to speak at religious schools? If your looking to sell/promote electric cars, you don't set up a booth at Nascar events if your looking at making the most of your time.

It does come into it considering the overwhelming world view is that Satan is evil. You could say half of America thinks conservatism isn't as useful as liberalism, but it's a small fraction that actually thinks its evil. I'm not saying those people shouldn't have a say either, but they need to peacefully protest in that case, not forcefully protest or cause chaos by pulling fire alarms, etc. As far as I'm concerned, if Satanists want to speak on a religious campus, by all means, just don't expect God himself to turn a blind eye.

The same reason they put up satanist statues next to Christian ones on government property: to make sure the government is applying these regulations fairly. 

Well if you don't think God is real that's less of a concern. Here are their tenets if you're curious. I'm particularly a fan of no. 5

  1. One should strive to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures in accordance with reason.
  2. The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.
  3. One's body is inviolable, subject to one's own will alone.
  4. The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo your own.
  5. Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.
  6. People are fallible. If we make a mistake, we should do our best to rectify it and resolve any harm that may have been caused.
  7. Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.

So I'm always happy to see them put up a statue on government property next to one of the ten commandments. 

Not sure what the construction of a statue has to do with free speech.

#5 and #7 are a problem because one says you should base your beliefs around what we know now scientifically, and the other says the rules are designed to promote thought. How do you think people like Einstein came up with their idea's? By using the known methods that weren't working, or going beyond them?

Your saying there was never a time where people of color were only aloud to sit at the back of the bus, yet were still aloud to ride the bus? The reason being at that point in time segregation was seen as normal. They had to fight for the right to sit where they wanted.

There is an overwhelming amount of schools that heavily favor lefty viewpoints and speakers, yet they allow centrists and conservatives to attend the school and it's events. The reason being that catering to the left and ignoring the center and right has become the norm. They have been fighting for their right to speak freely and have speakers who hold their same viewpoints.

I don't see how they aren't similar. Both are groups who are/were oppressed in an unreasonable manner and who fought for their right to be treated equally.

Oh, come off it. This whole victim complex isn't a good look.

Besides, if you are going to ignore my entire post, why do you even bother responding to me? As previously stated, there is no expectation of universal access to hosting speaking events. What you are asking for is not freedom of speech (you already have that), it is government regulated expression.

Victim complex? Did you already forget about your prior reply? Probably because you used the victim complex already and now your projecting it onto me. If there's no expectation then why are students asking for it and why did Trump listen and put it in writing? What's being asked for is a level playing field. Equality. Not sure why that's such an issue since it seems to be one of the main goals of the left today.

The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau


Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.
