"From the standpoint of freedom of speech and the press,
it is enough to point out that the state has no legitimate interest
in protecting any or all religions from views distasteful to them...
It is not the business of government to suppress
real or imagined attacks upon a particular religious doctrine."
-- Justice Tom C. Clark
(1899-1977) U. S. Supreme Court Justice

law.
