 Kudos to J.M Faer for raising a voice.  We would not normalize that these types of projects are acceptable. 

You can raise your voice and disagree wholeheartedly whilst still being polite. 
Even if someone is a huge bigot that doesn't give you free rein to be rude, as 
tempting and justifiable as it *feels*.

While it is okay to disagree with someone else's projects, goals or
ideas, and to be verbose about it, in my opinion we're getting quite
close to being unacceptably unpolite here.
