Two examples spring quickly to mind. The first obviously, is that if the first person announce that they are a Satanist, then a second person in any public setting should be perfectly free to point out that the world would be a better place if the first person took up the hobby of impersonating raw liver in a tiger exhibit.

In my second example, if a first person, a physically normal man announces to the world that he is in fact a woman and wants to be so addressed, any second person should be free to state publicly that they're having none of such nonsense, that at best the first person is deeply disturbed, and to thereafter address them by the correct masculine pronouns and otherwise completely ignore the first person's nonsensical statements.

Free speech is only really free when it extends to all parties.
I completely agree. The right to freedom of speech in no way assumes freedom from ridicule, or the right to be heard or to demand that everybody agree with you.

Like you, I've got a problem with being forced to use your term for yourself rather than my term for you. Somehow your right to not be offended is greater than my right to free speech.

This from people who would have elected a Mormon preacher. Talk about your nutcase religions.

One question, though: If the situation were reversed, and the public venue known as the Orange County Public Schools suddenly decided that one of the two groups you mentioned, the Satanists or the Muslims, were allowed distribution privileges, but not Christians, would you be okay with that?
It is already the case that Christians are virtually banned from the public square by order of the imperial Federal courts. The precious sensibilities of the atheist take precedence. There is even a made up doctrine of separation of church and state to govern the persecution.

The group admits they are actually atheists and are using this stunt of satanic worship to suppress legitimate religious teaching in the school district but the reflexive response is "equality". Face it equal rights for Satanic worshipers is a ruse to trick the district into promoting atheism.

Too often it's a "freedom of religion" proclamation until another group wants to do the same thing...
What the hey, if we can hand out religious materials at schools I want to hand out Pastafarian religious texts. In fact I want the "8 I'd Really Rather You Didn'ts" posted at the local courthouse as well. They make a hell of a lot more sense than the 10 Commandments of the Jewish/Christian religions.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

And I say a croaking frog with a fart problem makes more sense than what you just wrote.

That doesnt answer the question perplexing so many pastafarians. Is it okay to drink french wine while munching, worshiping the pasta?

Do Pastafarians' have communion?
"Take eat. This is my body. (Please note contains glutein).
Take drink. This is my blood. (But be careful cause I may have added too much garlic and pepper.)"

Good idea, mock religion to show how "open minded" you are.

You would think Satanism would be more popular, Orange County is very conservative. Satanism is just a side step from worshiping Ayn Rand.

I actually received a certification in French wines in the 1970's and, according to what I learned, a person should drink whatever wine they find most pleasing to their palate regardless of country of origin.

That fact should be sufficient in resolving that perplexing question of so many Pastafarians.

If that isn't enough then just place the bottle in a bucket of ice water before serving. The soaking will often remove the label so you don't know where the wine even came from.
