Compartmentalized Thinking

Classroom Incident Sparks First Amendment Debate - News Story - WISC Madison

OK, so this high school kid in Wisconsin ripped pages from a Bible as part of a class presentation. A couple of weeks later, someone got offended. The outraged parent got my attention:

Paul Jacobson, Elle’s father.. . said ..."It's not about free speech. It's not about necessarily about the Bible although that was disgusting, too. This is about the vicious, vile manner in the way this kid went about this and tried to make some kind of point," he said.

It's not about free speech, it's about this kid "tried to make some kind of point".

Oh. Big difference, I guess. Bet ol' Paul runs for office soon.
