I'm certainly not but I don't like the NYT in the first place.

Which discrimination are you referencing? It's a bigoted newspaper, it's not a surprise.

Absolutely, as the judge mentioned The atheist would have been killed in the Middle East for his beliefs.

Whats your reason behind this thread? What do you find interesting in regards to the First Amendment and this case?
Primarily my post was to gauge whether people even care about the erosion of rights under this administration. Certainly there appears to be an incredibly out of proportion application of 'kid-glovery' regarding a very tiny but extremely vocal minority.

He decided that a police officers sworn testimony wasn't relevant ( I read the court transcripts early on so I'm not sure what you mean by 'prior') despite the fact that the defendant admitted to assaulting the victim.

The judge seemed, from everything I've read, to allow his experience in the Middle East to allow a sliding scale of justice here instead of correctly applying the the law for assault.

I appreciate your response, thanks.
