Dawkins Silenced

By Jonathan B. Wight

I don’t agree with Richard Dawkins on many things, including his views on Islam. Dawkins

But canceling his radio appearance because he might offend people is giving in to a view that all speech must be agreeable in advance to the listener.  Don’t listeners have the right to hear his views, even if misguided?  Those that don’t agree with him can change the station, voting with their marketing dollars to stations that they like.

If spewing bile were to be avoided on the radio, would Rush still be on the air?
