That may make him a coward, and you can call him all the things you want, but when it comes down to it, these kinds of people have serious problems that are not adequately addressed by society.

I believe the best way to address his problems is as was done, with a baseball bat!

And that wouldn't do a god damned thing.

This should never have gotten to point that a student had to take it in her hands toget rid of a hate spewing asshole from her school! She is a child and the adults should ave protected those kids from this nasty excuse for a human being!
While i don't think he should have been hit, he should never have been allowed to go as far as he did. That is NOT protecting our children!
I'm more concerned about how this going to effect this poor girl and her future because the adults failed her!

The poor girl in question is 19 and tried to give Brother Dean a Louisville Slugger Lobotomy. Head injuries like that are no laughing matter. She's lucky she didn't kill him. She has been arrested and yes, this will mess up her life.

And no, this shouldn't have happened in front of a school. Or anywhere for that matter. Unfortunately that runs into Trouble with exactly how free your speech can be. It seems pretty obvious that society does need some mechanism for dealing with assholes that take their freedom of expression to the extreme but that response can't be violence. Not unless you want the fundumentalists trying to take your head off because you said something mean about their invisible friend.

No. Nobody deserves that.

You think that it was effective to make Brother Dean into a martyr and a rallying cry for bigots like him? That it was good to have a young woman arrested for trying to knock his fool head off?

How far should he have been allowed to go?

On what grounds could the police have removed him?

Should children (in this case, young adults) be protected by isolation or by inoculation?

Consider

This preacher didn't promote the idea of beating people with baseball bats. Stop making bullshit excuses. Dodgy
