Freedom of Speech

Today Miss California was removed from her "office". I won't lose sleep.
it was reportedly for being outspoken on her opinion that marriage should be between a man and a woman. Now excuse me, but since when is an American not permitted to have their own position on a topic?
also in the news, a young student wanted to present a report on Harvey Milk - the first openly gay political representative. Her school said not until her class members had permissions from their parents to hear the presentation.
The ACLU got involved and said the student's rights of free speech were being violated and the school had to permit her to do the presentation and apologized.

I see an alarmingly trend toward intolerance of one side here, oddly enough the side that so often gets condemned for just such intolerance!
