When did the definition of "tolerance" change?


Tolerance used to mean to respect others opinions even if you think they are wrong. For example, if you are a Republican Conservative, you would most likely disagree with everything Obama or Hillary Clinton stand for. Yet if you met them in real life, you'd be civil to them (at least I would). Now, tolerance seems to mean that all opinions must be equally valid. In other words, one cannot profess they are right in fear of offending the one who disagrees. You may be punished because disagreement may be construed as "hate." Not talking about racial slurs and insults.
