This whole issue brings to mind a quote attributed to Voltaire - "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." It is supposed to actually be a paraphrase of some other things he said/wrote. Another one that was written by him is:
"Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so too.''
Voltaire's 'Essay on Tolerance'
Having said that I think you have a valid point Omen but it doesn't speak to the issue of this thread.
I think more of us just need to learn to agree to disagree. You are not more right or wrong if someone agrees or disagrees with you.
