how to think, discuss and legislate-- when rights collide

Interesting that FB did not put up a preview of the article I cited in the post-- by Walter Williams. It ain't censorship since it's not the govt, but still interesting that they seem to be discriminating in this way!

Aside from the debate on what to do with this issue and how to help the people in this position...

When you're in a setting where "rights" *necessarily* conflict, pushing really hard on one side will inevitably lead to conflict and usually leads to incoherence.

Entering such a realm, here are some good ideas:
-think through the practical costs and benefits;
-aim for humility, empathy and (true) tolerance;
-avoid dogmatism;
-embrace freedom and choice-- for all-- as much as possible.
