Monday’s Quote 

Start the week thinking

 

 

To criticize a person for their race is manifestly irrational and ridiculous, but to criticize their religion, that is a right. That is a freedom.

The freedom to criticize ideas, any ideas, – even if they are sincerely held beliefs – is one of the fundamental freedoms of society.

A law which attempts to say you can criticize and ridicule ideas as long as they are not religious ideas is a very peculiar law indeed.

-Rowan Atkinson
