I thought this was rather good. I particularly liked the conclusion:

I can just about see why celebrities' privacy ought to be protected. But the notion Lord Rees so casually endorses – that you must respect the privacy of ideologies that mandate violence, the subjugation of women and the persecution of homosexuals and treat them as if they were beyond criticism and scientific refutation – is the most cowardly evasion of intellectual duty of our day.
