Are you supporting your troops?

I went to Victor J. Stenger’s presentation at the Route 66 Hotel on June 5, and received a signed copy of "God: The failed hypothesis." Not many people showed up because most of the flyers were torn down the same day they were posted.

Why would someone feel the need to tear down those flyers? Certainly if one had faith in one's own religion, one would not be intimidated by them.

If one respected the U.S. Constitution one would leave those flyers alone. Those flyers were posted legitimately on public bulletin boards.

As a veteran of the military, I am deeply saddened that someone would violate the constitutional rights of others in my own country. Tearing down flyers because you find them offensive is no lesser an offense than spitting on the graves of those who died fighting for your liberty and your right to free speech.
