In my post about the fatwa on Molly Norris I mentioned that wordpress put up a post asking people to support the 1st amendment through a group called 1forall and my challenge to them to support Molly. In true first amendment fashion that comment has apparently not been approved. So in keeping with the actual spirit of the 1st amendment I am reprinting it here:

Well a good way [to support the 1st amendment] would be to support Molly Norris. Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki has declared a FATWA against her and called for her death for the “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day” event. I have in this post

declared my support for Ms. Norris and requested that he include me in said FATWA because I vow to have a new such day if they succeed in killing her. She is a fellow American, worthy of our support.

You might not like the schools in Texas or the Oil companies etc or the patriot act George Bush but you risk nothing by opposing them. That’s not defending the 1st Amendment it’s cheap and false courage to give yourself a pat on the back.

If you believe in the first Amendment, you declare that it is very important for people to stand up for it. Well here is a real way to do it to put actual skin in the game.

The question is do you have the actual courage of your declared convictions or is the threat of radical Islam a bridge too far for the defense of freedom of speech?

Lets find out.

I guess we did didn’t we?
