Let Trump Speak

The recent events in the Trump presidential campaigns reveal the anger people have concerning the views of the opposition party. But freedom of speech is guaranteed under our constitution. These organizations that disrupt others from speaking are going against the fundamental law that our country was founded by. We must let others speak, even though their views may be opposite to ours. Why not leave them alone, and create our own rally with people of the same views.

But this opposition and anger it creates has a religious consequence. The founder of the Heaven’s Truth religion (Tenrikyo) once told a follower that sometimes we must back away when confronted with evil; because if we continue to argue, we also may become covered with evil. For example, in the Trump confrontation, both sides were covered with the dust of arrogance, with the emotion of anger manifested. The path of arrogance becomes contagious resulting in anger and hate on both sides, where at the beginning there was arrogance only from one faction. It may be wise from a religious point of view to voice our discontent, but not to hinder the free speech of others, even if it goes against our views of what is correct and true.
