    What makes SOME people highly threatened by and intolerant of others who have different lifestyles

    and/or of differing beliefs?
    There are SOME people who exhibit highly melodramtic histrionics at the thought of someone expressing a different view and/or someone having a different lifestyle or subculture than they do.  They simply refuse to comprehend that others are different.  They maintain that those of such differing lifestyles, beliefs, and/or subcultures, even subgroups, are ......WRONG! Such people seem to exist in the 19th century instead of the postmodern. 21st century.

    Moral people are not highly threatened by or intolerant of others who have different lifestyles.  Moral people speak the truth that others refuse to accept.  Truthful people easily comprehend that others are different and they easily recognize both moral and immoral actions.
    Unusual patterns of behavior, emotion, and thought have risen dramatically during recent decades through psychological and biological apathy based on political drama.  Through this pattern of social pandering ambiguity emerged as the major political factor in the United States.  Simultaneously, the judicial system of the United States became unusually prejudiced in many ways by supporting immoral activity through decisions bent on partisan minority influence. 
    Moral individuals have not changed in the postmodern 21st century.  Moral individuals still recognize immoral activity even when others do not. 
    In most current cases of dissent by one individual or group over another in the United States, the melodramatic activity comes from the immoral lifestyle or subculture people who resent the moral society.

    I think it all boils down to tolerence and patience for others and their lifestyle.

    Good question, GM. Are you threatened by many of my answers to your questions? It would seem so since you delete most of them. Would you take a little time to answer opposing viewpoints, rather than just deleting them or mocking them? Thanks.

      Good point made, Caleb.  You are always free to participate. Merry Christmas. I am not going to respond to so-called opposing viewpoints. Each person should have HIS/HER say and LEAVE IT AT THAT.
