  • No, I am not tolerant of people who believe they are better than most and only care about themselves and what affects them. I am not tolerant of injustice and unfairness and inequality within the human race.

  • Can I honestly say I am a tolerant person- Yes but there are those on this site that may disagree and see me as intolerant but typically I see those same people as intolerant as well so I think it boils down to a difference of opinion.
    Am I tolerant of ALL people- well we can try but ultimately there will be those you cannot stand nor tolerate so you avoid contact with them as much as possible. So to this question I have to say No.

  • I can tolerate anyone for short periods if I absolutely must. I have zero respect for bigots, racists and those who would make their religion law over everyone.

  • I am truly tolerant of every lifestyle. However, I can't possibly be tolerant of every person, it's simply not possible. There are those who I simply refuse to tolerate - WBC members for example - because of they way they choose to act. I have a zero tolerance policy for those who spread ignorance or hate - bigots, racists, and just about anyone with the "holier than thou" attitude. However, yes, as a whole there really isn't any lifestyle or belief system out there than I won't tolerate... Individuals on the other hand are a different story.

  • I believe I am as tolerant as I can be. I tend to only be intolerant of intolerance, which I know makes me intolerant to some degree, lol. But I tolerate, accept, and embrace the various faiths in the world, the people I meet who follow them, etc. I have no issue with anyone living life the way they feel is best as long as that doesn't involve harming or disrespecting others.

  • Am I tolerant? Being tolerant isn't necessarily a virtue you know?

    I'm perfectly willing to live and let live. I don't judge people based on their belief systems (mostly because I came out of a really crazy church school basically brainwashed) their sexuality, or the color of their skin.

    There's a whole line of crap I don't tolerate, though. Abusive men. Liars. People that hurt children. Bullies. So am I tolerant? You tell me

  • No. I am not tolerant of child molesters.

  • It's not like tolerance is any big deal. Tolerance isn't respect. Tolerance isn't appreciation. It's leaving someone alone to do whatever stupid thing they want to do, as long as it doesn't have much effect on you.
