“…religious freedoms are not supposed to be dependent upon the approval of majorities; the whole point of such liberties is to protect minorities from majoritarian frenzies.”

One thought on “What political courage looks like

  1. It’s amusing to see how World Trade Centre site was turned by fanatics into ‘a holy ground’.. 911 attack was a terrorist attack and any description of it other than that is simply wrong. Don’t let irrational fear and anger betray hard-earned values of civil liberties over decades.
