Never let intimidation stop you. Preach what you believe & live it or at least do your best to walk it since no one is perfect. And know that you could be wrong; so be willing to reform.
The one thing … that is truly ugly is the climate of hate and intimidation, created by a noisy few, which makes the decent majority reluctant to air in public their views on anything controversial. … Where all pretend to be thinking alike, it’s likely that no one is thinking at all.
