The only way to make sure people you agree with can speak is to support the rights of people you don’t agree with. (Eleanor Holmes Norton, delegate to the US Congress)

It seems difficult today to be heard if your ideas and opinions are different from the accepted (“politically correct”) opinions of those who seem to have the loudest voice. There really is no debate winner if not all sides are heard. Whether or not we agree with someone, we should grant him or her the platform to be heard just as we want to be heard.

Let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger. (James 1:19)
