Those people there have decided this spot, which is between two major buildings in the middle of a foot traffic area, should be theirs to promote their message.
Between the people stopping to talk to them and the people moving around them, it’s now clogged up and people can’t get by.
A) Continue to say freedom of speech is absolute.
B) Find places on campus where people can share their message without creating traffic and safety issues.

A lot of people here have to find any excuse they can conjure up to say “religious oppression!”
When the fact is it doesn’t matter what their message was.
 August 30, 2016 at 3:11pm
People keep making this argument! Gaaah!
You cannot set up “wherever you want”, you’ve never been able to, why do people keep saying that you can?
August 30, 2016 at 3:11pm
So I can just exercise my free speech anywhere, even if it impedes the flow of traffic?
No, I can’t actually.

“Until it becomes a problem we should let them ignore the rules for Jesus”
Yes, I know what you’re thinking.
Or they could just obey the rules to start with and share their message with anyone who wants to hear it instead of saying “cause prayer, I get to ignore the rules”
I’m not imagining anything. There are designated areas for a reason because those areas allow you to set up your chairs/signs/tables, put your message out there, and not interfere with the flow of foot traffic.
And no, it doesn’t matter if they weren’t creating an issue “right then and there”, they have to follow the same rules as everyone else.

Let me make what he said more clear.
He was using the “Keep Off Grass” as an example. Basically saying that the rules say you can’t be on the grass, but somebody is screaming they can be where ever they want.
The rules say there are designated areas if you want to set up shop and share a message, whatever message that is, and everyone has to obey those rules.
 August 30, 2016 at 2:57pm
I agree, you are once again what you describe for not getting the point.
 August 30, 2016 at 2:56pm
The reason this policy exists is because when you start letting people set up chairs/signs/tables wherever they want, they will create a foot traffic and safety issue.
 August 30, 2016 at 2:55pm
Yes, I’m aware that is what you are for not understanding the point.
August 30, 2016 at 2:54pm
‘Well as long as it wasn’t hurting anyone they can ignore the rules’
No, they can’t.
You can only set up something like that in designated areas for a reason.
 August 30, 2016 at 2:54pm
Precisely the same thing. You cannot set up chairs and signs wherever you want on a campus. You have to do it in designated areas so foot traffic can flow freely and not create health and safety issues.
Sometimes you have to use extreme examples to show people why they are wrong.
Setting up my chairs in the middle of a road is creating an issue.
So is setting your your chairs ‘anywhere you want’ on campuses.
 August 30, 2016 at 2:52pm
What’s that? You mean it’s not absolute and you can’t just set up shop where ever you please if it interferes with the normal flow of traffic and business.
You DO understand! This must be an incredible moment for you.
And i said on the street, not your property. You do not own the entrance to the parking lot either for that matter, it’s public domain for several feet.

You’re right, nobody is going to be able to prove what you have to pretend atheism is, which is why you have to keep lying about what it is. If you told the truth about what it is then your poor little made up world view would break all to pieces.
But we can always try now can’t we?
Atheism is the lack of belief in gods based on a lack of evidence for gods. If you do not feel that lack of evidence for a thing is sufficient reason to not believe in a thing then I’m guessing you believe in literally everything anyone can come up with.

A book full of genocide, rape, slavery, torture, mutilation?
Nah, it’s all roses and sunshine.
I’m guessing it might be for the same reason anyone objects to anything that poisons the mind of those who read it.

And when you can prove anything, let us know.
Your god is a repugnant monster and a thing of evil. There is no condition under which any number of things the god of the Bible does or approves of in the Bible that make him anything but as one author put it “the most unpleasant character in all of fiction”

It’s so funny to watch you continue to rationalize how you think by assuming everyone else thinks like you.
It’s particularly hilarious in light of the fact that you basically spend most of your posts essentially insulting yourself by doing it.
[-5] August 30, 2016 at 12:29pm
We have somebody upset because they think somebody is acting like a Christian towards Christians. You so beautifully described yourself as usual and tried to put your failures on atheists.
[-3] August 30, 2016 at 12:26pm
Of course I do, I’m not like you.
Okay, so the horrors of communism and the end results of it don’t bother you.
Good to know.
Quick question: What the hell is wrong with you?
 August 30, 2016 at 12:24pm
“Back when America was more-or-less a Christian nation”
“raising up generations of conscienceless monsters”
So back in the old days, when we had what, child labor, no rights for women, treated minorities like garbage, treated gay people like garbage, ect ect.
Yeah, those people were not “monsters with no conscience”
But now that we’ve moved away from those things? Okay.
 August 30, 2016 at 12:22pm
Bet you put the same policy in place if you’re in charge.
