You're citing two completely unrelated standards. For the religion side, you're arguing that the organization should be able to say "Our religious ideology forbids black people from becoming priests, because of something our holy book says," based on the freedom to assemble. Why should bu...

1) Sounds like national sovereignty-ism. 4) Blatant harassment and threatening of doctors, nurses and patients is not free speech, and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Or it would be if it involved making or speaking threats towards "vaccinationists" and their patients...

The ideological ban rule applies to facial bans of discrete ideologies, not undermining portions of ideologies. Otherwise, every resolution would be an ideological ban of some degree or another.

I'm calling it legal on this count.

Then you didn't understand it. Because retreating =/= unable to defend oneself. A reductive interpretation like that would inevitably lead to the argument that an armed person who is not currently pointing their weapon at another is not able to defend themselves in that moment, and is therefore hor...
