    The question arises because people have a tendency to connote intolerance with something negative.
    not inherently. there are, in fact, philosophers who claim that tolerance is wrong.

    In context of a particular ritual observance. It includes many things, including heterosexual sex.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Intolerance, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

    That's a favorite self description of many contemporary libs. Clever, too, since it allows them to declare their opponents intolerant, while being intolerant of their opponents. Preserves their feeling of moral superiority, nicely as well, which is of course the attraction to being a liberal.

    Re: Is Intolerance Wrong?

    Definition: lack of toleration; unwillingness or refusal to tolerate or respect contrary opinions or beliefs, persons of different races or backgrounds, etc.

    Contrary opinions - Not wrong

    Contrary beliefs - Not always wrong

    Persons of different races - wrong

    Persons of different background - sometimes wrong

    Expand the definition to include religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or any natural born trait... all wrong reasons to be intolerant.

    Um... no. It is clearly defined. See my earlier post.

    The third book of the Hebrew bible, a manual for priests compiled around the time of moses, a book of archaic tribal laws and traditions that tells us a lot about the people and the time.

    Instructions on various ways and times to sacrifice animals.

    Ways to clean up after childbirth, disease, unclean discharges, etc.


    But what does that have to do with the contemporary view of homosexuality?

    And they would be correct__Tolerance is slowly eating away at western civilization.
