"An opinion, right or wrong, can never constitute a moral offense,
nor be in itself a moral obligation. It may be mistaken;
it may involve an absurdity, or a contradiction. It is a truth,
or it is an error; it can never be a crime or a virtue."
by:
Frances Wright
(1795-1852) Scottish-born lecturer, writer, freethinker, feminist, abolitionist, and social reformer

Yet everyone tries to be politically correct so as not to offend another. Taken to extremes, politically incorrect opinions are increasingly being called "hate" crimes. What nonsense!
