A good read, thank you.
You are correct about the deaf ears, at least among true believers. For them, this is a religious matter, as irrational and impossible to combat with logic as any church dogma could possibly be.
But material such as this is important and useful for persuading those who are reasonable and open to logic, but not yet off the fence. Some are persuaded by arguments about rights, others are more open to practical arguments. We should have many tools at our disposal and use that which is most effective with any given person or group.
