Forward Thinking Update: When or How Is It Wrong To Challenge Other People’s Identity Forming Beliefs?

Forward Thinking Update: When or How Is It Wrong To Challenge Other People’s Identity Forming Beliefs? July 4, 2013

Libby Anne and I both been really busy of late and so we decided to postpone the “Forward Thinking” posts scheduled for last Monday to this upcoming Monday, July 8 instead. This means that there is still time to write up a blog post on this half month’s topic, which is about whether, when, and/or how it is okay or not to challenge the controversial beliefs, values, and identity commitments that some people find so important to them that they take serious offense to have them questioned.

For more on what goes into the question you can see my own analysis of the various elements that need to be taken into consideration, my own current rough formulation of how to solve the problems, and a healthy disagreement about these issues in the comments section, all by clicking here.

Send your blog posts on this deeply important (and often deeply divisive) topic to camelswithhammers at gmail dot com by Sunday night Eastern Time and I will incorporate Your Thoughts into the post!
