The difference is that in your example I would be insulting people, not a belief system. What I am stating is that you are equating one person directly mistreating another person on a personal level ("You stupid moron!") with somebody insulting a Belief System ("People that believe in Ghosts are stupid").

Not everyone have the same definition of insult as you, people get insulted for different reasons, that is why caution is used when expressing your views, hence, you can insult someone's mom all you want, or someone's religion all you want, but they won't react, they won't even get offended. Another person, you insult their mom, or religion, they will react.
So you admit, that you don't have the balls to take my scenario and act upon it, yeah keep saying that people in West people won't get attacked or killed for expressing themselves.
I actually have the balls, and I might take the camera and show you, since I live in NZ, but I won't go as far as getting the cops involved, I will back down, or run lol since I'm fast.
