I just think it's ridiculous for someone to be ridiculed, tormented or protested against simply because they say that they believe differently then someone else about a particular subject. It's one thing if they are organizing opposition rallies, or try to discriminate against someone or practice hate speech. Then yes, I could see where there would be consequences. But to give someone shit and have them suffer "consequences" just because they have a different view than you is just nuts. Think about it.
That makes us no better that the Islamic crazies that kill people who believe different than they do.
