That depends on the context of the statement; I'm in favour of making it
rather minimal as some others in this thread have described.

For distinguishing the respect for opinion versus respect for the people
who hold them, perhaps this:

    We value healthy discussion and debate of all opinions, no matter
    who holds them. Ideas are always a valid target of criticism, and we
    welcome anyone who wants to respectfully join the discussion.
