RULES OF ENGAGEMENT

I do not respect your religious beliefs,
     nor do I respect
          your political persuasions.

I accept your right to have them, and,
I accept your right to express them ...
    only so long as you accept
        my right to reject them.

I accept your ignorance because it is
     a condition curable by knowledge;
     however,
I reject your voluntary ignorance because
     it dismisses the possibility of knowledge.

I do not respect your religion,
     nor your politics .....
          nor do I have to.

Not in my State House,
     Not in my Court House,
          Not in my School House ...
               Not in My House.
