    An anti-Semitic nutjob preacher who wants to hold the Jews responsible should be ostracized, and mainstream Christian leaders should make it clear that blaming the Jews is no longer OK (at least, the Catholic Church ruled that it's not OK, and I'm assuming Protestant groups have done the same). But if someone wants to make a philosophical argument on the issue, so long as they aren't actually inciting violence, then yes, they have a right to express their opinion. And other people have a right -- and in this case, I'd say a duty -- to tell them they're wrong and that any Christian who follows them is sinning.
