Brother Dean Saxton

Campus Preacher Brother Dean Saxton has caused much controversy for his misogynistic, homophobic, bigoted and racist slurs. Many of his protests have taken place on college campuses where he declares women, particularly female students, deserve to be raped. Early in the video you hear him argue that he's allowed to be vocal about his views due to Freedom of Speech. Not only is he vocal about his views in protests like the one above but he uses the social networking site Twitter to spread his unpopular opinions.

This individual is taking advantage of the First Amendment to spread his religious beliefs and encourage the rape of women - which is dangerous if a suggestible individual took it as an order from God. Saxton’s speeches could be considered encouraging criminal behaviour towards women which is contrary to the founding ideal that everyone is treated equally.
