Please, give your reasons here whether worldviews and religions should be protected from criticism and rigorous examination. Would be most helpful if you could defend your case with pertinent examples. For instance;
1) If worldviews were respected and protected, modern-day democracies would be non-functional
2) If worldviews and religions were deserving of respect and protection, the Igbo practice of twin-abandonment would still obtain in parts of Nigeria.
3) If worldviews were deserving of respect, the Roman practice of infant abandonment would have lasted much long. It was eliminated thanks to humane ideas from the Christians.
