"Rights cannot be just for those who will use them to uphold the values you agree with. They must also be for those who will take positions you can't fathom for reasons you can't stomach. Free association, and the freedom to live out your convictions expressively in how you make a living, cannot be reserved for rock stars and fashion designers and other powerful liberals, while being denied to regular Americans."

Yes. It's called "liberty", and it should be for everyone.

+Theodore Ts'o and I spoke last week at the SFLC's annual conference about Linux kernel related things, and it was a lot of fun. The transcript and video of that talk will hopefully be up soon, but what was really the best thing there, was Eben Moglen's closing remarks, the transcript of which is linked to below.

Go read it, or even better yet, watch the video at https://moglen.law.columbia.edu/sflc2016/09_closing.webm

Yes, it's long, but very very worth it, seriously good stuff, and something that anyone interested in Linux or any open source communities should pay attention to.
