Two things come to mind, as always.
First is, I take the Patton view on the situation. You don’t win culture wars by being willing to die for your beliefs, you win by making the other guys die for their beliefs. As the famous Marine saying on this goes, “We like Pepsi and Mullah Omar likes death. Now he’s dead and I have a Pepsi — win win!”.
Second is that I have already said the same thing Ms. Harris said, which is that Warren’s charge sticks much better because of the behavior of the reporters afterwards, who don’t seem upset at all about being forced to “convert”. For me it would be a matter of being made to express religious beliefs I don’t have more than the particular religion. I think it is a failing (pace Mr. Burnet) that religious belief isn’t taken seriously. Perhaps the rationalists are correct and in the future we will all “outgrow” such things, but that’s not the situation today and to pretend otherwise is hardly rational.
P.S. The difference between this incident and the Italian Quattrochi is that Quattrochi was going to die and he knew it. He certainly could not have saved his life in any way making it a completely different situation. At that point I would hope I had the strength of will he did.
