According to the handy look up program attached to my word processer, tolerance is the acceptance of differing views of others such as in religious or political matters and fairness toward people who hold these differing views.
It is also the act of putting up with somebody or something irritating or otherwise unpleasant. I could make quick work of compiling that list. I am sure you could as well.
Have you noticed? The intolerant label rolls freely from the mouths of the world’s most intolerant. Much the same as racist, sexist and homophobe labels shoot forth from the mouths of the world’s most bigoted. I have often been accused, along with most people who hold similar views as mine, of being intolerant. I assure you that I am. Some things demand intolerance. Drunk drivers for one. Then there is the small issue of incompetent leaders who tend to steer a country as erratically as a drunk might. Or, oddly enough, intolerance of people who want to kill me in the name of their god.
When the ACLU attacks every vestige of Christianity, is that a demonstration of tolerance? Just curious. I am sure that they will contend that they are not intolerant of Christians, only that every trace of Christianity must be restricted from public view. Their approach emphasizes a freedom from rather than of religion. More accurately, freedom from Christianity.
I am sure that you are following the story about the mosque that Michael Bloomberg, The Most Tolerant Mayor of New York adamantly supports? A mosque at ground zero has nothing to do with reaching out to Americans and healing the hurt from the attack that took three thousand innocent lives all in the name of Islam. No, it is an Islamic symbol of conquest not unlike the mosque that sits on theTemple Mount.
More innocents were just murdered by tolerant Muslims. They were members of the International Aid Mission providing medical care to remote villages. They were unarmed doctors and nurses from a Christian medical team, six Americans, two Afghans, one German and a Briton. Lined up and executed.
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid told the AP that they killed the foreigners because they were “spying for the Americans” and “preaching Christianity.” In a Pashto language statement acquired by the AP, the Taliban also said the team was carrying Dari language bibles and “spying gadgets.”
Islam is the most intolerant group on the planet. There is no radical Islam. There is no moderate Islam. There is just Islam. Christians believe that you can choose Christianity or not. That is why God gave you the free will to choose. Islam believes that you can choose Islam or death and the locations of their mosques do not change that tenet of their law. They brutalize women. There would not be enough stones in Hollywood to meet their demand. They execute homosexuals. They kill their children in the name of preserving family honor. They forbid conversion to any other religion. They believe Sharia should be the law of not just Islam, but the world. As an American, fools like the Most Tolerant Mayor Bloomberg insist that I must be tolerant of this. Just so the Mayor understands I am also intolerant of fools. Especially the ones who hope the alligator eats them last.
When Christian churches dot the Islamic countryside and Christians are not lined up and executed in Islamic countries just for being Christian, then you may raise the topic of tolerance with me again. Until then, I must say that I am content to be intolerant.
I just added another item to my list under he might be a closet Muslim. It is right beneath near prostration before the King of Saudi Arabia, we are not a Christian nation and we are one of the largest Muslim nations. He said those things, not me. Why is it my President, who never hesitates to mention how stupidly a local police department acts, has not made a statement about this issue? Americans were murdered at this site Mr. President. All of them killed in the name of Islam. Can you suggest to them that maybe they should locate their mosque elsewhere, like maybe Saudi Arabia?
Are you keeping up with the extravagant trip that you purchased for Lady Michelle and her rather large entourage? If you want to see what she’s been up to, it might be a good idea to scan the European papers. This interesting paragraph was in an article in Spain News Paper El Mundo.
Michelle Obama vacation in the Costa del Sol – English Translation, Spain News Paper El Mundo
Several Arab royal families also spend their summers in Marbella for many years. Thus, there will be a meeting between Michelle Obama and Prince Salman bin Abdul Aziz, governor of Riyadh and brother of the late King Fahd of Saudi Arabia, while another meeting is shuffled from the first lady with the owner of Málaga CF, billionaire businessman, son of Qatar’s Interior Minister and member of the Qatari royal family, Abdullah Al Thani.
I had not heard that she was meeting Arab royalty on her trip. Of course I typically rely on American Media. Reckon she covered her head? Suppose she asked them about that old mosque issue? Or told them how proud she finally is of America?
Be tolerant Americans. Right up until the day that there is no more America.
