All religions deserve the same level of respect and our government gives all religions "tax exempt" status because they are all equal. Priest,minister,mullah all get a "parsonage exemption" and we all pay more in taxes to support and subsidize them.
Freedom of speech means tolerating the offensive as well as the comforting speech.

Editor's note: We're not sure that "tolerating" is the right word here--it suggests that no view can be criticized (Milton's defense of free speech was that vigorous debate leads to sound understanding and the best ideas). As you may notice, none of my posts suggest shutting down Mr. Dakdok's tour. Instead, I think that people need to know more about his positions than just his own public relations. Criticism, not censorship.
