Another "hate speech" argument? Really???

Whether or not Hysteria includes anti-religious lyrics, I'm pretty sure free speech is still allowed on US military barracks. Whether or not there's an incitement to burn down churches, I wouldn't have defended the lyrics themselves... it's the wrong battlefront. It leaves you open to an implication that if the lyrics are "hate speech", you're also against having them sung. The contents of songs played at Rock Beyond Belief are simply irrelevant..
