We Demand Free Speech! (Except When It's For Christians)

The Los Angeles Times reports:
Ruth Malhotra went to court last month for the right to be intolerant.

Malhotra says her Christian faith compels her to speak out against homosexuality. But the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she's a senior, bans speech that puts down others because of their sexual orientation.

Malhotra sees that as an unacceptable infringement on her right to religious expression. So she's demanding that Georgia Tech revoke its tolerance policy.
Shakespeare's Sister sums up the Christian-intolerant Left's viewpoint:

Christians Sue for Right to be A**holes

The normal bounds of free speech have always been drawn somewhere around shouting fire in a crowded movie theater; now Christians are constrained by a new line: they are not allowed to exercise free speech if it makes someone feel bad.

Yet it's perfectly fine for Shakespeare's Sister to profane Christians. Certainly her free speech is intendend to make Ruth Malhotra and her fellow believers feel bad.

Curious, isn't it?
