Keeping on the topic of free speech vs ‘hate speech’, this op-ed by Dr Paul Moon is well worth the time to read. Amongst other things he says, and which we agree with strongly, is:

“The liberty to hold our own opinions, to debate them openly with others, to change our views, and to chisel out some truth from it all, is one of the great inheritances of the Enlightenment, and has been one of the most potent weapons in centuries of campaigns to achieve social justice.”
