[Excerpt] Nobody ever said freedom would be easy. We are daily challenged to reconcile what is allowable and what is acceptable. Compromise, sometimes maddening, is part of the bargain. We let the Ku Klux Klan march, not because we agree with them, but because they have a right to display their hideous ignorance.
Ultimately, when sensitivity becomes a cudgel against lawful expressions of speech or religious belief — or disbelief — the loser is all of us.
Comment: I agree. Well said.
