... you're absolutely free to "condemn" their actions. I don't give a shit about your "condemnation."

What I challenge is your support for criminalizing their actions.

Condemn all you like. You have freedom of speech. But if you want to prosecute people for posting YouTube videos, you need to make a case that the videos are libel. Not just that they hurt the feelings of an over-privileged, thin-skinned gaggle of intolerant prayer-mumblers.

Right: condemn and criminalise, and damn this language.

But if you want to prosecute people for posting YouTube videos,

Again! You are doctoring the facts, because they don't support your view.

No, that they were prosecuted for posting the YouTube video is the only interpretation that the chronology of events can support.

More precisely, persons you are biased against, which makes you think they are not entitled to the protection of the law.

I have repeatedly said that they are perfectly entitled to equal protection under the law.

What I will not accept is that they are entitled to special consideration, or that offending someone's feelings can be a criminal offense.

Oh oh oh...how xenophobic is this...and how rude...You really need to learn about tolerance and watch your language.
I may sue you, you know, haha. Or worse I can be nasty too...but I am older so I am not going to fall down on that level.
Didn't your parents teach you better about respect?

Respect is earned.

People who want to ban swearing in church haven't earned any.
