When Freedom of Speech Should be Absolute

I think freedom of speech should be absolute for the right to plead a case that the law be changed, even when the petitioners are hated and despised, such as gays, pedophiles, necrophiles, coprophagists, sadists, drug addicts, Muslims, drunk drivers, soldiers… I myself was charged in 1970 with indecent assault for pleading the case for gay civil rights in a book I wrote that I mailed free to anyone who asked. The charge was dismissed when my lawyer pointed out that the charge amounted to rape through the mails.
