It isn't my responsibility to judge outsiders, but it certainly is your responsibility to judge those inside the church who are sinning.
God will judge those on the outside; but as the Scriptures say, "You must remove the evil person from among you." - 1 Corinthians 5:12-13
33 “‘When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. 34 The Foreigner residing among youmust be treated as your Native Born. Love them as Yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God. - Leviticus 19:33
18 He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing. And you are to Love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt. - Deuteronomy 10:16-19
Fight in the cause of God those who start fighting you, but do not transgress limits (or start the attack); for God loves not transgressors. - 2:190
Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in God has grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And hears and knows all things. - 2:256
"The truth is from your Lord": it is the freewill of any person to believe in God or to be an disbeliever. - 18:29
For behold, unto Us will be their return, Then it will be for Us to Judge. - 88:25-26
Those who believe in the Quran, those who follow the Torah, and the Sabians, Christians, Magians, and Polytheists,- God will judge between them on the Day of Judgment: for God is witness of all things. - 22:17
you title suggest that all religious people of any denomination simply TOLERATE us non-believers.
What an insult. it is the rest of the world that TOLERATES religion.
THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.
Evolve and rise above your ape like instincts. Just because you have limitations and feel FEAR doesn't mean some can rise above.
Insired by an Anti-Gay thread.
To the Christians
They were told not to judge those outside of their church.
I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ. - Amen

I can only apologise if you think it an attack SORRY.
An overman as described by Zarathustra, the main character in Thus Spoke Zarathustra, is the one who is willing to risk all for the sake of enhancement of humanity.
In contrary to the last man whose sole desire is his own comfort and is incapable of creating anything beyond oneself in any form.
This should suggest that an overman is someone who can establish his own values as the world in which others live their lives, often unaware that they are not pregiven. This means an overman can affect and influence the lives of others.
In other words, an overman has his own values, independent of others, which affects and dominates others, lives that may not have predetermined values but only herd instinct.
An overman is then someone who has a life which is not merely to live each day with no meanings when nothing in the past and future is more important than the present, or more precisely, the pleasure and happiness in the present, but with the purpose for humanity.
In Nietzsche's view, an overman should be able to affect history indefinitely. He will keep reentering the world through other people's minds and affect their thoughts and values.

I prefer acceptance over tolerance. Otherwise it comes across as "yer a bloomin' disgrace but I heart you anyway"
