I Hate Intolerant People!
Yeah! I hate’em! And I thank they should be all lined up and shot!
Ok, ok. I hope you understand irony. I speak in jest. But it is important to recognize that even those we deem “intolerant” deserve a certain amount of respect. But how much is a judgment call. There is certainly a time when one must speak out against intolerance; but certainly not every time.
Sometimes it takes patience to respect people that are different than us. It is just so very apparent that they should see things differently But, of course, there is the catch—who gets to define “should”?
And here I am in the morass of “relativism”, that murky domain which I was taught to eschew as a child. Oh how wonderfully safe and secure it was! (Oh, to be honest, it was not a very pretty world! It was unreality.)
