  1. Well I dare say that Montreal Unitarian U*Us have pretty much bankrupted themselves on the moral front as a result of their deeply misguided, and indeed *vain*. . . search for absolU*Ute secU*Urity from the peaceful public protest of your's truly. It is not for nothing that I display a picket sign saying -


    In many ways our little "war of words" is a microcosm of the exact same social dynamic that causes whole nations to similarly foolishly seek absolute security from perceived or indeed real threats. What was it that "famous Unitarian" Benjamin Franklin said?

    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

    The same might be said about those who abrogate and undermine an essential liberty, such as freedom of speech and the right to peaceful public protest, to obtain a little temporary safety. . . When these same people claim in their effectively fraudulent religious propaganda to be great champions of freedom of speech and freedom of conscience they bankrupt themselves in terms of credibility as well.
