    we are not talking about intolerance we are talking about tolerance. the definition of tolerance is the acceptance of someone else's opinion or point of view whether you agree or disagree.

    Not everyone's views or opinions are equally valid. If that makes me "intolerant," then I guess I'm "intolerant."

    You're confused. Tolerance isn't the acceptance of your point of view, it's acceptance of your right to have that point of view.

    And therein lies the rub. To many, "disagreement" and "intolerance" are synonyms.

    I am discriminate and intolerant - justly so.

    at least you admit that you are discriminating and intolerant. if you would have read my post i am referring to people that claim to be tolerant but yet call this women a bigot. by calling her a bigot for her religious views then they themselves are being religious bigots.

    they claim to be tolerant but they are only tolerant with people that agree with them which is not the definition of the word tolerant.

    not correct

    the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with.

    Intolerance =/= bigotry.

    I discriminate and I'm intolerant, but I'm not a bigot.

    This past election with President Obama easily carrying the state 56% to 41% and with the passing of marriage equality and the legalization of marijuana has given, the State of Washington a rightful claim to the title of America's Bluest State.
    America's Bluest of Blue States: WASHINGTON

    Feel free to consider the source, but WA is pretty blue. Elections suggest it is so. Eastern WA and parts of Western WA are certainly red. But King County, home to Seattle as well as a total of about 1/3 of WA's population is VERY Blue.
