220. "rejection of ALLOWING another to have differing views"
(Caps emphasis mine.)

How is expressing distress over superstitious beliefs the same thing as NOT ALLOWING another to have a differing view?

Why is this such a persistent theme on internet forums everywhere, with people who can't tell the difference between repression and mere commentary?

Why are there so many people who confuse criticism with censorship, who think that one person exercising their free expression to criticize what someone else says or believes somehow amounts to NOT ALLOWING what they criticize?
