Then you believe the KKK member should be able to join the NAACP and destroy it? That is where the freedom of association came from in 1958. Know your history, DHE. And stop siding with the Klan.

Homosexuals already have the same rights as everyone else, so your argument is built on nonsense. The current phase of the homosexual agenda is to beat down anyone who would dare to criticize their chosen lifestyle and behaviors. They will accomplish this goal through the use of "political correctness" and hate crime legislation specifically aimed at silencing their opponents as they are unable and unwilling to meet them in honest debate.

Not sure what gay thing you are referring to, though I am definitely for gay rights. And, I suspect, this will be a dead issue soon and conservatives will deny in a generation they were ever against them. And, what you are talking about re: the klan is merely a good reason for not funding ideological groups like the NAACP or a church/temple. This is where the problem arises. Because the Klan may have an ideology which most people disapprove of does not mean they cannot have a point. Public is public. When you cross that line, you open up Pandora's box, whether it be religion, skin color or other ideology.

The Klan made that argument, too. They said the NAACP was publicly funded because it got a tax exemption. The Court said it did not matter. The position you and the Klan hold has been rejected. Let go of the gay thing, dude. It's clouding your thinking.

Of all the sloppy and confused decisions rendered by the Supreme Court in recent years, few compare with CLS v. Martinez (2010). The decision was more than just poorly reasoned. It was also based upon willful blindness toward factual misrepresentations by the defendants in the case. Justice Ginsburg authored an opinion she knew she could arrive at only by pretending to believe facts she knew were not true.

Greg Lukianoff, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, or FIRE, offers a good critique of the decision in his new book, Unlearning Liberty. I write about it today...
