Freedom of speech is gone

-A +A
When liberty is lost freedom of speech is the first victim. In our community a couple’s last wishes are being ignored because a man voiced opinions that he believed were based on scientific evidence. In our nation a young woman was denied a beauty contest crown based on the fact that she honestly expressed her religious beliefs. What has happened to freedom of speech? Freedom of speech is allowed only if it is politically correct by today’s standards. Note that these standards change from time to time. A local individual stated that he went to Egypt and saw a pyramid. That convinced him that blacks were more intelligent than whites. He has not been called a racist. The PC police find that acceptable. Remember when freedom of speech is lost all of your freedoms are in jeopardy. Cleona Duncan, Newcastle
