Respect their right to make fools of themselves

Voltaire is attributed to saying “I may disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

This seems to be a solid theme recently with many groups flexing their respective first amendment rights on various topics.  This is a free society, and with it comes the scrutiny of behavior and the right to counter point.

(and – as a bonus – you get to go to the U.S. Supreme Court when your local school board suspends the student with the “Fuck This Guy” signs.)
