Yikes - I hope this isn't accurate.

If we find ourselves censoring thought and speech simply out of fear of antagonizing literal believers, we are doomed. The war of ideas and reason is already lost.

I think Sam Harris got it exactly right in "The End of Faith" when he talks about religious moderates enabling fundamentalists by protecting the belief as beyond question.
