Tolerant: showing willingness to allow the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with.Keep in mind that tolerance requires something with which you disagree and the willingness to let it be. Your job, then, is, given the definition of tolerance, rate the following statements as "tolerant" or "intolerant". Good luck.
1. I'm a Christian.
2. I'm opposed to Christianity and think those who follow it ought to be removed.
3. I'm a Christian calligrapher. My business is making fancy wedding invitations. I do not want to be required to make invitations for weddings that contradict my beliefs, but I will recommend other vendors for those people who come to me with such a request.
4. I think that people who refuse service to the LGBT folk on the basis of personal values ought to be fined, jailed, lose their business or some other serious consequence to prevent it from happening again.
5. I oppose abortion and would urge women seeking an abortion to seek alternative help.
6. Deeply held religious values need to be changed in order to keep abortion free.
7. I believe the Bible. I hope that others will, too. You're free to have an opposing opinion.
8. I believe the Bible is misleading, misunderstood, and potentially dangerous. It should not be allowed in public.
9. I think that homosexual behavior is a sin and people who practice it need a Savior.
10. I think that those who oppose homosexual behavior are bigots and haters and deserve whatever bad things come their way.
(I don't think I need to grade your answers. I'm hoping you can figure it out. Because the irony of those who clamor for "tolerance" while doing so without tolerance as opposed to those who stand for what they believe while being accused of being intolerant is a serious problem.)
