'Confident pluralism rejects stigmatising others through our speech. At the same time, it requires ut to distinguish between stigmatizing and causing offence...the civic aspiration of tolerance includes the space to make moral judgements. The liberal progressive must be able to say that the conservative moralist holds a view that he finds wrong, misguided, or immoral. And vice versa. Those assertions will likely cause offenses. But they are an important part of the effort to coexist with deep and genuine differences and to allow for people to be persuaded and to change their minds.'
John D Inazu, Confident Pluralism, p.101.
