A Facebook acquaintance had a post up about tolerance.  He asked ‘shouldn’t we tolerate people with differing opinions.’  Sure, but then he used the example of Chick Fil A and their anti-gay marriage stance as an example.  We shouldn’t be tolerating bigotry, prejudice and hatred.  Preventing someone from having equal rights is not about tolerance or acceptance.  Do we tolerate Nazis or skinheads or Klan members?  We shouldn’t.

There should be a level of acceptance and education on these issues.  But to blindly allow people to hurt others is ludacris.  We need to try and be better than we are.
