    John Walsh says: “One particular moment that sticks with me is Michael Nugent’s speech at the OSCE meeting in Warsaw in 2012 and his use of the phrase: “You have rights, your beliefs do not”. Does John BELIEVE Mr Nugent’s view is right? And, if so, his he right in his belief?

    Sorry I got the name wrong in my first email. I meant to write: Derek Walsh said: “One particular moment that sticks with me is Michael Nugent’s speech at the OSCE meeting in Warsaw in 2012 and his use of the phrase: “You have rights, your beliefs do not”. Does Derek BELIEVE Michael is right when he says that? And, if so, does he have the right to believe it?

    Yes, I believe it. And yes, I have the right to believe it. I also have the right not to believe it. The important points to note are that the belief itself does not have rights, and someone who holds the belief does not have more or fewer or different rights than someone who does not.
