Here’s a perfect example of how so many right wing Christians in this country throw a fit about Muslim attempts to silence their critics but demand the same thing for themselves. And it comes from Pat Robertson, who argues that billboard companies have every right to refuse to put up an atheist billboard because Christians might be offended by what it says.
He’s wrong about the legal issue, by the way. And he would know he was wrong if a billboard company refused to put up an ad with a Christian message. If that happened, he would be screaming about how persecuted Christians are and how outrageous such discrimination is. But they are covered by the same laws. The Civil Rights Act forbids discrimination by private companies on the basis of religion; that doesn’t just protect the religious, it also protects the non-religious from attempts by the religious to discriminate against them.
