What Is A Reasonable Goal For Us All To
hear these words so much today, "Intolerance" and "Hate."
And for some reason, some people have deemed themselves the social
police, which make them some of the biggest hypocrites walking
fact is if someone is intolerant of those who are intolerant, then
that someone is also intolerant. This is not that hard to get. And
fact is we are all intolerant of something. We need some honesty
only reason people find the need to tolerate another person is
because of some intolerance of what that other person does. If two
people agree on everything, then there is no need to tolerate each
very word "tolerate" implies that there is diversity. The
intolerance of something in another person's life is what actually
causes the need to tolerate that person. So though we all find some
things others do to be intolerable, our goal should be to tolerate
the actual people, in that we should not be uncivil.
--Keep in mind that public speech that offends others is not the
same as walking up to some person in the mall, school or
the work place and beginning an altercation with the person. One is
free speech; the other is uncivil.
thoughts: Our government should not force privately owned
businesses to hire people who are in opposition with a business
owner. And we should never confuse being polite in public
with going against our conscience and keeping company with those who
we should not tolerate on a personal level in our homes, churches,
private events, etc.
