In the name of "Free Speech". I honestly do not think these people are capable of grasping the concept at all.
Your newscast and this segment concept are both outstanding. However, CBS News has a responsibility to the American people to filter out ignorant, intolerant individuals who link the teaching of evolution to school violence, or who use a major tragedy to spew uneducated anti-choice rhetoric. CBS can and must do better. I hope the next few days will bring free speech that considers the role of gun control and access to mental health care in our country. Such discourse will lead to far more progress against future shootings in our schools than promoting hocus pocus over science and medicine. [emphasis mine- admin]
The Anchoress is writing about the comments received on the CBS website over an appearance by Brian Rohrbough, who lost a child at Columbine. Rohrbough was commenting about the school shootings in CBS's "Free Speech" segment.
This country is in a moral free-fall. For over two generations, the public school system has taught in a moral vacuum, expelling God from the school and from the government, replacing him with evolution, where the strong kill the weak, without moral consequences and life has no inherent value.
We teach there are no absolutes, no right or wrong. And I assure you the murder of innocent children is always wrong, including by abortion. Abortion has diminished the value of children.
You see the problem? The commenter wants any opinion that does not match their's shut down. Which kind of defeats the entire idea of free speech. Go read what The Anchoress has to say about a long overdue discussion.
