have old fashion values? I see alot about tolerance but i think tolerance and acceptance are 2 seperate things.
tolerance is the ability to accept the existence of something while still disapproving of it
(according to Wikipedia)
We dont have the right to harm anyone or treat them poorly due to their beliefs but we dont have to accept what they do as right. We can teach our kids what is right and what we believe is wrong. Many times people think others need to accept others behavior. I disagree. I will treat all people with respect but I will not say their behavior is ok.
Just a bit of a vent since I got jumped on for giving my opinion and standing up for my morals.

The US is a melting pot of different cultures, religions, manners and regionalisms. Not too long ago, someone here posted a ? re the use of the terms Mam and Sir, which is not something I, a woman born in the 50s and raised in CA, heard in my home. We were taught to use Mr and Mrs, and I still mainly adhere to those terms. In some cultures, burping at the table after a good meal, is considered a compliment to the cook.
Whose culture, beliefs and standards should be considered the model to follow in a society and country that is not homogeneous?

Most of us stand for something and believe in something.- the problems are highlighted when individuals disagree with each others' stance. There are plenty of "My way or the highway people" who appear to have the inability to respectfully let others stand for what they believe in; live and let live so to speak.
Just look at religious beliefs........
