I have to on a large scale,due to the fact that the governments and certain people force me to do so to keep my business going. I was brought up in a family,that due to wartime hatreds,and my own hatreds towards the enimy I fought,that I must try to show respect for these people or face being charged with hate crimes. I have always been able to control and hide what I feel my true feelings without these laws,but now find it much worse to hide and the hatreds grow more intense as these laws are forced onto us by these people. I do not mean to name or imply any specifice people or race here,just a question on the truth or lie of people in my position.

Reminds me of Galileo when he discovered that the earth went round the sun. At the time the religious people controlled thought in Italy and did so on the basis that the Earth was the centre of the univers and everything revolved around it. God created us to be at the centre. Galileo was tortured for his beliefs. He was told if you state that the Earth is at the centre of the universe, we will elt you go. So he did. On the way out he mumbled, "nevertheless it does move". He is one of my heroes. I also stand up and state things that others do not want to hear. I have been told to deny the truth or get into trouble. So I do as Galileo. Perhapos you ahve to do the same. I still believe I am right and I will fight for the freedom to speak freely for you and for others, even if I do not agree with your views. It is a shame that our opponents cannot accept freedom of speech because what we say, although it may be true, they cannot cope with in their narrow-minded prejudiced world. it is easier to silence protest than to argue with it, since they know they would lose. Read my other discussions to see what I mean.
