What I find so interesting is this whole tolerance thing. I've been told many times that I need to be more tolerant because I believe scripture --
that there is right and wrong. Does this mean I condemn those who "sin"? Then I condemn myself. It's something rather strange -- many Christians
raged against Brokeback Mountain because it depicted homosexuality. Yet, how many movies centered around affairs are protested by the same folks?
I guess the big question is, what is tolerance? Is tolerance acceptance of everyone? What do you think of Nazis? Pedophiles? Assassins?
Now don't make any mistake, I'm not saying atheism is akin to the same thing, but I'm asking where does tolerance end for you. Why? What makes a
pedophile worse than a coc aine addict? If you say coc aine is a victimless crime, tell that to folks in Colombia, where many children are
now orphans living on the street selling themselves into prostitution to afford to eat. What's the difference?
