Don't know who to attribute this to, but, do you see it happening?
"If we continue to teach about tolerance and intolerance instead of good and evil, we will end up with tolerance of evil."

Totally agree. Tolerance alone continues to be touted as a virtue; it is not (in and of itself). It doesn't matter how tolerant you are but what you are tolerant of. Many seem to automatically assume tolerance is good and discrimination with bad when neither of these words have any inherent moral bearing. It's all about the context in which these words are used.

I think we have gone too far with tolerance so as not to hurt someone's feelings. Instead of telling people what they are doing is wrong, we have been taught to "tolerate" what they are doing instead.I think it does a disservice to both sides. People are not called out for doing things they shouldn't be doing, and people that stand up for doing things the right way are made to feel like they are the ones doing something wrong.
I agree with cueballsmom. To me it's a "hate the sin, but love the sinner" sort of thing.
