Has political correctness gone too far? Is hate speech free speech? Is it right for colleges to ban speakers whom the students don’t like? Should the United States pass a law banning hate speech even if it does not incite violence? How would hate speech be defined? What if religious skeptics’ stating their views about religion were classified as hate speech against the religious?

You are welcome to participate with your experience, knowledge, and opinions, or if you have time here are some resources to peruse:
