I’m watching Sean Hannity do his usual job of bullying his guests with piss poor arguments.
But god help me, this time, though the way he’s arguing for it sucks, I think I’m sympathetic with his conclusion, or at least something like it.
I think it should not be allowed to take actions which would reasonably be construed as disruptive to, for example, funerals, marriages, and other ceremonies (other events than those we would usually call “ceremonies” should probably go under the category I’m talking about, as well, but I don’t have a full characterization of the category at this time). So, for example, if a protest of a person’s funeral can be heard by the ones attending it, then it should not be allowed.
My questions for debate are:
Do you agree or disagree with this? (Or with whatever sufficiently clarified version of this you’d like to discuss?)
What are the best ways to clarify the idea I’m getting at here? Probably most of you see the general gist, but formulating the rule precisely is pretty difficult. (What counts as “disruption?” What counts as a “ceremony?” Is “ceremony” the right word to use, or should some wider category be active here? And so on…)
How to navigate such difficulties?
