    Thread: Tyson Fury backlash
Post: RE: Tyson Fury backlash

It does depend what country you're in, the UK and the US have different rules on free speech vs inciting hatred. It's a bit of a blurry line. This ties into the petition to ban Donald Trump from the U...

In the UK religion is seen as a pretty unusual thing to talk about, and a private thing. I wouldn't have any fear talking about being an Atheist at work, though people would think you were a bit stran...
