2012-07-12-pamelageller_s640x427Pamela Geller has tactlessly taken constitutionally protected “free speech” to a whole new level of offense. She has put thousands of dollars into ads offensive toward minority religious groups on CTA buses in Chicago. Whatever her intentions, Islam teaches that the best response is to condemn Geller’s hateful message and respond with peace. No hate speech should be promoted toward any religious groups, whether you are a Muslim, Christian, Jew, Sikh or of any other faith. It is our duty and right as Americans to denounce such despicable acts of hateful speech and instead promote a peaceful society.
