Americans most tolerant of free expression

Americans should be proud of these figures (myself included).  It is a testament to the enduring legacy of the Jeffersonian liberal democratic project.  However, the numbers should be taken with both caution and appreciation.  For, the trolling social justice warriors are hell bent on pissing it all away and replacing our liberal heritage with a…

BBC Invites “Punishing Blasphemy” for Discussion
