So personal abuse does limit freedom of speech? - Wizzstick
If you go up to somebody in the street and start shouting and swearing at them and calling them obscene names you should expect to be arrested. That has nothing to do with limiting your freedom of speech.
I am convinced that the christian gospel is psychologically harmful. - Me
What all of it? Every single element? Every doctrine? - You
No. The gospel begins with the assertion that everybody is a broken sinner whose best works are nothing but filthy rags and if you don't believe that you are going to hell for all eternity. That is psychologically harmful.
This is why that video has so may dislikes.
I dislike the video intensely. Of course it has potential to do harm. I don't want it banned.
You seem to be taking an all or nothing approach. I would suggest that's pretty extreme. If a statement of belief is harmful (Gays can change) then yes if should be banned.
So we all need to live in a safe world where anything you think might do harm cannot be spoken. Let's call it 1984.
Why did you ignore all my other examples?
What if a gay man says his gay relationship is a choice? Should he be charged with a hate crime too?
What if somebody publicly denies anthropomorphic climate change? Should they be hauled before the magistrate too?
What about anti-vaxxers? Their stupidity can be measured in child deaths. Shall we lock them up for expressing their ignorance in public?
Think whatever you want - but that doesn't mean you're free to state it.
Yes of course you are free to state it. Freedom of speech has no relevance to saying things that are popular.
