A place where ModDB members can debate civilly, and learn from each other's views.
This is for Cervi_Messias and the rest of the atheists on moddb like him who believe censorship is fine and who think I'm using hate speech "bashing" their group by disagreeing with their beliefs civilly and constructively providing reasons as to why I think they are wrong.
This is the debate group, correct? Obviously people are going to disagree with you and debate you here. Just because you disagree doesn't mean the argument/opinion/idea should be censored. That's oppression of free speech. I have a right to speak against the philosophy of atheism constructively as I have been doing.
Hate speech is "communication that vilifies a person or a group based on discrimination against that person or group" according to Wikipedia. I've not done that. Just because you disagree with me doesn't mean I should be censored. Keep in mind that I also disagree with you.
According to Wikiquote, "Censorship is the suppression of speech or other communication which may be considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, or inconvenient to the general body of people as determined by a government, media outlet, or other controlling body."
Should there be censorship? Where do we draw the line? Should an unpopular opinion be censored "just because" and how does that work? Hate speech and censorship are two different things.
