Yeah, I know, my previous posts haven’t been particularly tolerant. Right Wing Christians love to point this out when sane and decent people challenge their demon worship.
“You supposedly preach tolerance but you’re the ones who are intolerant of us!”
Which, as has been pointed out time and time again, is basically a demand that we tolerate their intolerance. Which turns the virtue into an oxymoron.
Look, folks (and I know how you like to think of yourself as jess folks), all virtues have limits. For example, charity is a virtue but you folks believe it’s extremely limited, beginning and ending at home.
And mercy is a virtue that you folks treat as practically a vice.
Toleration by its definition and nature opposes intolerance the way charity opposes greed, mercy opposes anger, and humility opposes pride, so, for the umpteenth million times, folks, the practice of tolerance requires us to oppose your angry, selfish, vindictive, vain, hate-filled, intolerant brand of what you in your quaint, folksy, self-serving, ignorant way call Christianity.
