Ну, как-то так, да:

We owe it to ourselves and to our children not to give a free pass to governments—totalitarian, theocratic, or democratic—that endorse, encourage, enforce, or otherwise legitimize the suppression of open questioning in order to protect ideas that are considered “sacred.” Five hundred years of science have liberated humanity from the shackles of enforced ignorance. We should celebrate this openly and enthusiastically, regardless of whom it may offend.
(— The New Yorker)

Где это упрется в стенку, не знаю: в конце концов, на чем строить этику и тыпы, как не на взятых с потолка “sacred” основах, но все равно да.
