As I posted on that site:
Reid is stumping because he's as dumb as one.
Wanting a separation of cult and state is "terrorism"?
Preventing a country from becoming a theocracy is "terrorism"?
No. Terrorism, for the uneducated and inebriated like Reid, is the use of (or the threat of) violent force to coerce people. Far right wingnut christians throwing bombs at abortion clinics is terrorism. Wingnut christians using words to incite murder is terrorism.
Asking for existing laws to be obeyed is NOT terrorism. Asking that all points of view have the same protection under the law is NOT terrorism.
