We have confused respecting a person’s right to hold whatever religious beliefs they choose with respecting those beliefs. The truth is there are plenty of [deeply held religious beliefs] that are simply not worthy of our respect. Can we start with the ones that have no respect for us? Can you imagine an African-American respecting someone’s [deeply held religious belief] that the Bible justifies slavery? Grant the right to believe it, yes. Respect the belief itself? No way. -- David Lee, creator of Frasier (I think)

Good article. Read article.
