GUEST,Taliesn BS: The Godless march that didn't matter (11) RE: BS: The Godless march that didn't matter 11 Nov 02


(quotes)
"Look, if it's a BS thread, say so, okay?"
------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think you're right, Radriano. "BS" tag added. Mudcatters are reminded that non-music threads should have the "BS" label.

In addition, it would have been more appropriate to post a message in the "godless march" thread, rather than starting an entire new thread."

Alright now , I forgot the protocol of affixing the appropriate prefix of "BS". I'll try not to make that mistake again. This happens when one leaves for a spell. I got busy elsewhere all of a sudden.
However I do have a wee bone of contention over the challenge to the "appropriateness" of my choice to create a separate thread entitled "The Godless march that didn't matter" as my first-reaction countering of Mrzy resurrecting his "Godless march on Washington" announcement for a march way back in June.

It had had its run and though recognizing anyone else's right to free speech opinion I decided that my posting to the already old "Godless March on Washington" was not the appropriate thread to voice my response to the aetheitst's "ressurected" title and thought that bringing that call to aetheist's pride" headline to the top of the list again was inappropriate for me to make my point. They made their free speech points with the "setting of the agenda" headline. I chose to make my free-speech point with an appropirate headline of my own chosing.

*Choice* being the sacrd right everyone would appear to defend.

Part of my message was meant to call Mrzy on his drudging up this apprently dead horse of a thread just to beat the drum of his particular pro-aetheist agenda. No would or should stand in his way.

But what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander where I come from and , thus ,free-speech cuts both ways.
I'm just using free speech to call Mrzy on this using of a long over and done with event that came and went yet, with nothing new of note that is pro-aetheist/libertarian , using it as a label to draw attention again with no real new news to offer.

He and anyone else is certainly *free* to do so as often as they like from here on. No one's rights have been infringed. But there's no guarantee you're gonna agree with what gets posted in response.

In all honesty I thought this thread would have but one or two responses and it would've evaporated of its own. I had made my point , but when I saw a challenge to the legitimacy of chosing a whole new thread ,well then ,that's a whole 'nother matter now ain't it?

Free speech ain't free until everyone's got it in whatever form they chose. That should warm the cockles of any *true* libertarian's heart . ;-)
