      Free speech is incredibly important to scientific development. However it MUST be respectful of other peoples’ beliefs and must accept other peoples’ perspectives.

      Free speech. It is so important to be able to believe whatever you want and to be able to say your views and be heard. However it is also so important not to hate other people, or to want to hurt them, so we must always think about what we think and say and how it will make other people feel or react.

      Free speech is always preferable but as Anne and Sinead say, most be used in a respectful manner and never to promote hatred.
