A marvelous statement in today's comic strip - Curtis

Curtis, the comic strip is very repetitive with the same plots from year to year, but sometimes funny. Today Greg, Curtis' dad, gave an incredible little speech to Curtis that sums up my feeling. He said:

Panel 1: (while watching TV) Witness the face of hate, Curtis.

Panel 2: This is a perfect example of a closed-minded person who uses "freedom of speech" with a twisted sense of religion to tell others how they should live!"

Panel 3: Curtis: Is freedom of speech a bad thing? Greg: Not at all! It gives me the freedom to tell 'em what they can do with their advice!
