On respect for others

People have many aspects. They are entitled to respect for their humanity. But not for their ideas. Attitudes, like conduct, are appropriately judged. Character is rightly judged. That I respect your love for your grandchildren does not mean I shouldn't condemn your racism and ignorance. Those are both forms of respect ~ judging people on the contents of their character.
