Would you translate (or spread) a TED talk if you didn't agree with it's topic or the speaker's point of view?

I think, I've said it all in the title.

Would you translate a TED talk even if you did not agree with it? Do you think that people will feel you agree if they see your name written next to it?

Would you be willing to spread ideas, even if you did not agree with them?

    May 7 2012: I would say that as individuals, we do not have much power to say that one idea is universally wrong. All we can do i agree, partially agree or not agree. I couldn't picture myself translating or spreading the idea i do not fancy. Partially because i am bad at translating, but majorly because it would be a misleading sign that i share the same thought. It could be done only if I was to wright a comment with it describing my opinion.
