Are you tolerant of intolerance?

Ironically (my word for the day), I am so not tolerant of intolerance.

  • I don't know what I'm less tolerant of. Tolerance or intolerance. Both piss me off. Seriously.

  • Uhm I dont know. I think its actually stupid to go around asking people to be tolerant and at the same time not being tolerant of the idea some people wont always see things the same way you will. Its actually called being a bigot. Its hard for me too though when I hear someone saying (for instance) gays have rights to marry when they are telling me my kids cant pray in school. Seems hypocritical to me to complain about my kids right to pray and still ask me to be tolerant of things that might offend me as a christian.

  • Nope, and never have been. I was raised to respect differences and celebrate them. I was the kid in my school that if I saw someone being made fun of I put you in your place. Oh boy do I enjoy doing that, educating the intolerant and ignorant.

  • Who defines who is intolerant of something? For example, you may feel that people who do not support gay marriage or their lifestyle are intolerant of homosexuals. Perhaps that person feels that you are intolerant of their religious beliefs.

    We're all going to have differences of opinions. If you want people to accept and respect yours, you need to be prepared to do the same for them.
