During colonial times in America, if you wanted to convince or inform people about some issue that you considered important, you went to the local printer and got some pamphlets printed. You then handed them out, read them to anybody that was interested, nailed them to the town bulletin board, or the nearest tree. The first amendment was specifically written to protect this type of activity and the writers or "pamphleteers".Who Links Here

From Hit and Run
Reason's staff blog:
Televangelist Pat Robertson Calls Down Plagues of Frogs, Lice, and Locusts
on Dover, PA.
Not really, but Robertson did warn the residents of Dover, PA who
heretically voted to throw out the intelligent designers on the town's
"I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: If there is a disaster in
your area, don't turn to God. You just rejected him from your city."
Robertson later added this clarification: "If they have future problems
in Dover, I recommend they call on Charles Darwin. Maybe he can help them."
I just wonder how Robertson can be so damned sure that God is against the
teaching of science?
