Episode 45 -303 Creative in hands of the Supreme Court
Patrick and Bob tackle the Supreme Court hearings on 303 Creative, the Colorado based website design company that refused to create a same-sex wedding webpage due to the owner's religious belief. The state of Colorado insists that people should be forced to say, create, or present anything that someone wants them to--which is massive violation of the First Amendment.
Also up for discussion is a new statute in the state of New York that allows the state to punish what it defines as "hate speech" online. The law expressly prohibits speech that someone may consider to be abusive or hateful--despite the fact that such language is protected by the First Amendment. Even worse, the law requires the owner of the websites to condemn such speech and provide an outlet for visitors to complain about it, which also violates compelled speech laws.
Finally, Patrick shares his own personal experience with disenfranchisement in the recent Arizona elections. Freedom is truly under attack when Americans cannot count on having their votes counted as they try and make changes to governments that may be failing them.
