    And it is defended with "I can be against it but not a bigot". It is ridiculous.

    Is it wrong to be incorrect?

    Is it right to be justified?

    Don't hate the game, hate the haters...

    Re: Is Intolerance Wrong?

    It's difficult to answer such general questions like this, especially when morality is a key factor.

    I think people should be respectful of each other when it comes to sexual orientation, race, etc. There are still things which society should deem "intolerant," though. Namely actions that break the law, cause harm to others and things of that nature. The ubiquitous nature of the question is what makes it so difficult/impossible to come up with an absolute answer.

    The poll doesn't require an absolute answer. Read the options.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    By "The ubiquitous nature of the question," I meant what intolerance could mean in this poll.

    Does it mean everything in society? (what I took it as, so I voted only some is wrong)
    Or does it only apply to things like sexual orientation and race and other controversial topics that are already widely accepted? (in which case I would have voted yes)

    Hopefully that makes more sense haha. I probably should have commented on this in my original post.

    Most people are intolerant. They're intolerant of independence and demand that you pay into their collective just because they're obnoxious and have loud voices.

    Most of these people claim they're tolerant of stupid things that aren't really important. The real problem is people are emotionally judgmental.

    Hypocrites the lot of'em, but they love being called that.

    Who knows.

    People who say they are not intolerant, of things and stuff, are simply liars.

    everything is circumstantial in this case.
    Yes intolerance can be very wrong, bigoted, selfish, ignorant, anti-freedom, anti-equality and anti-american.

    But intolerance to other things could just be common sense such as rape?

    There is no yes/no answer thats why I picked SOME intolerance is wrong.

    Ask me specifically what you have in mind and Ill tell you my opinion or facts why it is or isnt.
