What if I led protest against Islamic extremism in lingerie, on prayer rug in Harvard Yard?

Imagine the scene: Cambridge, Mass., on a crisp, sunny spring day, with Commencement just around the corner.

With over 200 girls still kidnapped in the forests of Nigeria by the Islamist terror organization Boko Haram, I decide to exercise my right to free speech and peaceful protest against extremism by urging classmates to pray toward Mecca five times in one day in Harvard Yard.

Here’s the twist – we aren’t Muslim, and we don’t believe in the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad.
