The Freedom to be Wrong

Brian recently wrote a post titled My Favorite Freedom. Here is an excerpt from this most enlightening and gracious post:
I am so grateful for the freedom to be wrong. I think of all my new found freedoms, it's the most precious to me. I engage in a lot of debates on various message boards on the Internet. One thing I've been observing lately is just how closely people identify with their ideas, beliefs and actions. Attack their beliefs and they think you are attacking them personally.
I think that Brian has captured the heart of why so many non-religious people are turned off by us religious types. I resonate with what Brian is saying and relate to many years when being right was more important than being righteous.
