Sean Faircloth - Freedom of speech, foreign policy and faith

(26:46) Long but well worth (and important!) watching. Sean Faircloth, author of "Attack of the Theocrats! How the Religious Right Harms Us All - and What We Can Do About It", gives a brilliant and thought-provoking talk on the conflict between freedom and faith in the light of the recent violent protests against the video "The Innocence of Muslims".

He goes on about enlightenment and freedom of speech etc. regarding religion but fails to see that Obama is doing his best to destroy those very rights in America. What a joke.

Very good talk. But Sean seems to be saying that it should not be illegal to tell the truth about religions. Fair enough. But surely it also should not be illegal to lie about religions or denigrate them?
