Noelle Nicholls: Don't Blame Your Beliefs on Me - May 27, 2016 - 3:25:45 PM

Dear Editor,

People in this country don’t even want to take responsibility for their own beliefs, much less reveal where they stand on an issue. Now, because someone puts a persuasive argument forward or because they make their message ubiquitous or because their message annoys or offends you, they are forcing you to believe...
