  •  Tolerance is not a Mutual Suicide Pact.. (5+ / 0-)

    Tolerance must be preserved, and to do so, must not be viewed as absolute. There are some beliefs, speech, and organized behaviors which need to be treated intolerantly.

    This implies there is such a thing as a "truth" or "justice" and that everything is NOT simply relative, possible or conditional. There are things, when said, which are WRONG.

    If a group persists in being WRONG, and spreading WRONG ideas and attitudes, they should no longer be tolerated. Debating them first is a good idea, defeating the ideology and having their wrong ideology on record is good.
