I think they're either idiot a*****es or naive idiots.



As long as they're not actively lobbying to make abortion illegal though it doesn't actually effect me so I just mentally, verbally, or physically flip them off and go on my merry way.

I kind of agree with her. Standing outside of a clinic, where women are trying to have a medical procedure, with signs that are disturbing while yelling at and bothering said women is harassment.



Just talking/debating in general? Not harassment.

Most of the time their quotes and photos are not factual.

This is the one that irritates me. When I see on FB pictures and facts that aren't true.
Most of the really outspoken Pro-lifers are just ridiculous.



I have my beliefs on abortion but I will never change and will never try and change someone else's right to choose. I guess I am technically pro-choice? But I hate that label. Meh :?

Pretty much every complaint she made was debate/online related.

So, is a billboard making fun of Christians or mocking Jesus "harrassment" too? I mean, it would seem, right? How about PETA, when they picket? Is that harrassment?

I have never seen a billboard making fun of Christianity.



And PETA is harassment. They're a bunch of sick nutjobs.

A billboard no but of people were holding up signs saying God is a lie, Evolution is the truth whilst handing you leaflets telling you to come to a real science class because you're all raving lunatics.... as you try to walk into Church yes I would bet you'd all throw up your hands complaining you were being harassed.

It's a fine line, but I still think it falls under freedom of speech.

Hm. I had no idea there were bill boards like that. I think they're distasteful and designed to cause anger.
I'm not a fan with religious billboards anyway. We have a lot of billboards promoting Christianity around here and I think they should be taken down. All billboards promoting or discouraging religion of any kind shouldn't be put up. IMO.

A billboard? No.



But getting in your face and telling you that your God isn't real and making fun of you, yes. That's harassment. Or vice versa, a Christian in your face saying your going to hell, etc.



When it's on a personal level, it's much different.
