Glad you asked. Smile

It is Halloween in Salem, MA which touts itself as "The Witch City".

They are grotesquely cashing in on the horrific events of the ignorant, superstitious colonists who persecuted and executed innocent people. Fuck Salem. Assholes.
Fuck you Chas,
They are also embracing their dark past so people can learn from it it not just dust it under the rug like so many Catholics do with priests.
It is a major tourist attraction and it is controversial in some cases and that is why you get all these preachers down there. Self proclaimed witches flock there and they aren't afraid.

Are you fucking serious?

Except she was responding to someone being an idiot and trying to get them to stop instead of starting it up with no provocation like the preacher.

'Cause yelling "shut up" repeatedly at some one you disagree with is a good thing? We call that kind of behavior out here all the time. Are we going to justify it because it supports us or are we going to do the right thing and call it what it is?

I'm not seeing a rational difference from yelling shut up to saying.. that's a hissy... to me both are on the same playing field either way.

The age, maturity, education, and point of direction the comments are leveled at take hold in how one views a comment though.

The Salem Witch Museum has some actual history. That is the only place in town that has it. But go their web site - even there gift shop cashes in on bullshit.

And safe for self-professed witches? WTAF?

As far as I've seen, whenever we call out someone's absolutely horrible debate skills on here, they're;

1. Adults

2. Trying to convince people of something, instead of wanting someone to stop disturbing people by shutting their yap.

Neither of which apply in this situation, at least for the one we're "justifying" ( they both apply fully to the preacher, though). No one's praising the kid for her amazing debate skills, she looks like she's eight so this is about the most it's fair to expect from her, more just the fact that she bothered to pop the stupid respect bubble everyone seems to give these nuts.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

I'm not saying they don't profess bullshit, witchcraft is but I'm totally okay with anything that makes Christians going into a tizzy, realising they can't hang, burn or crush any more witches legally since after the Salem witch trials courts done away with "spectral evidence". Yes, witches do come to visit.

I am not going from the guy deserves respect angle, because I think street preacher really do not deserve much. I just don't see why we should condone bad behavior because it is in our favor.

RE: This Little Girl Is My Fucking Hero!
When I opened the comments, this was the first one at the top:

Quote:Even though I am atheist, if that girl was my daughter she would get a spanking for being disrespectful, everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, and he has the right to free speach, so in reality is not about religion, but a constitutional right.

First, this is probably a Christian claiming to be an atheist to "prove" even atheists object to this.

Second, too many people confuse "freedom of speech" with "freedom to speak anywhere at anytime regardless of anything else".

Third, if freedom of speech applies to the boy in this circumstance, then it also applies to the girl.

Fourth, this girl should have been joined by any onlookers who were also fed up with the proselytizing. If more people would use their own freedom of speech, maybe we would stop having our peace interrupted by this crap while we're just trying to go about our daily business. Dodgy

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.
