I just think human beings should be respected. As for their ideas, not so much. People should be 100% free to say what they want. Yet, I don't see the point of most intentional disrespect, except when it's just a side effect of something. For example, this is a perfect forum for anyone to say what one wants about any book - scripture or not. If the intent is an exchange of ideas and other people are offended by ordinary ideas, that's not really the fault of the person giving an opinion. That doesn't mean it's OK to stand on the street corner and shout it or to intentionally provoke people. (Well, it's noise pollution, for one thing.)
