This is likely some hyperbole, but it seems to me that any time someone
disagrees with someone else about some point, if the person doesn't like
it, they accuse the other of trying to impose their belief on someone else.
This happens in religion, politics, family relations and photo circles,
among many others. 

No one here is trying to impose their belief on anyone else. Yet they often
get this thrown in their face. We don't toe the line (I was going to say
politically correct line, but I won't because that is hyperbole) of
generally accepted "fact" and we are all of a sudden taking part in a
jihad. Sorry, it doesn't wash. People need to be free to express their
opinions regardless of what others say or believe with out denigration. It
