I believe in freedom of speech.. and sometimes saying things under that freedom is said to be hate against a person or a group.
In the Netherlands we have such a thing going on on this moment with member of parlement who is currently being sued for hate speeches ect because his
stance on Islamisation of the western world.
So as for that I like to say that restricting saying things which might or are sometimes hatefull to a group of persons, like christians , jews ,
muslims is not really a good thing because an healty discussion between groups with a pro and anti statement is helpfull for creating a solution and
finding a way in the middle. Further more people who are limited in there expresion in what ever sentiment will cause people to struggle internally
and leads to shootings and violent acts of desperation.
If you are against something or for something and others are against and you cannot speek about it you will boil up feelings upon a boiling point and
that will lead to frustration and that frustration will sometimes bring people to terms which makes it easy to get away with those frustration by
doing something about it by yourself .
It is my opinion that as long you are not calling for violence acts of violence and or crime punishable by law , you may say as much as you want as
long you are not doing the things like violence and crime.
There allways and always will be people offended by opinions , fact , fiction and any other thing, and it is better to have people rationaly and with
calm explain there viewpoint as long you don't swear, call names, are use peoples handicaps , color of skin ect and use those against a person
because you are against his view point.
As for religions , as long we have several theories on life , evolution , creatism , and several more , banning a discussion on those things will be
rather unwise , for none of them are yet proven and through discusion and facts answers must and will be found and not saying things like what a
religion or any other way of life is doing wrong or in the name of that religion or way of life will lead to tensions .
Discussion is healthy and not saying things on surten topics and viewpoints just because it might be hatefull or those groups of persons are feeling
hated or hurt in ther feelings will lead to a censurship and a downwards spiral because then other people might be offended hurt in feelings because
they are not allowed to there speech on there viewpoint on that topic.
that is my opinion and I will not call for violence but things which has to be said or the be spoken in a discusion eventhough its not nice to say
because peoples feelings are getting hurt. truth sometimes is hurtfull and for saying something like that which might be hurtfull allways give facts
or post info in which your claim is based so people can discus that in a topic aslong if it will not lead towards an offtopic discussion then find a
topic where you can explain that claim and view or create one in a topic area based on your discussion. like religion in religion topic.
