If you believe in individual liberty and/or unalienable rights, then you allow people to be right, wrong, smart, stupid, wise, foolish and deal with the consequences of their choices so long as they are violating nobody else's rights. You don't presume the authority or righteous license to dictate to them who and what they must be.

    The entire point is they are violating someone else's right.

    The thought police never think they are in fact, the thought police.

    They aren't, and even if they were-that does not make it ok to violate his in return. People dont lose their rights because you dont like how they use them.

    You think it is your right that someone allow you access to their own property or that someone engage in exchange with you?

    I dont think so. Your lefty entitlement is showing.
    Its curious you dont extend your line of thought to choice in public schools.
