Why is there so much intolerance towards others with different beliefs?
Defining intolerance would be important in a discussion about this topic. Some accuse others of being intolerant when they express a differing opinion or hold to a different faith. These want to shut down the right of all who disagree with them to express their position(s).
There is plenty of room for disagreement in a free society. If we continue to go down the road of true intolerance that shuts down anything that makes anyone "feel" bad then we go down a dead end and open ourselves to enemies using that tactic to promote their own brand of intolerance.
Defining it includes whether the concept of tolerance toward others should allow people to do anything they want including break legal and/or moral laws, and so should a discussion about it.
It will be interesting to see what people have to say on the topic. This also makes me think of how sad it is that the importance of debate classes and clubs has been nearly annihilated in our classrooms.
