In our world we seem to hear this term "tolerate" or "tolerance" used everyday and if you do not have tolerance for people, places and things, (so to speak) then you are looked upon as being "intolerant" and then you are not "tolerated" by those who speak of "tolerance" all the time.
So is there anything that you will not tolerate?
Does this make you someone who is intolerable?
Do you think "everything" and "everyone" should be tolerated?
Anything you cannot "stand" ?
Please answer the questions and do not just make a statement about someone else's comments, at least not until after you have put up some answers.
Thanks very much.
I tolerate no lies, abuse, gossip, slander, murder, rape, injustice, scams, fear, rebellion from my children...to name a few.
I do not tolerate people who talk trash and then act like everything is OK after they are proven wrong and do not apologize to everyone they tossed under the bus.
I do not listen to a gossip, if they start to gossip, I tell them to wait until I go get the person they are talking about, then the gossiper just shuts up instantly.
If you don't tolerate fear, kind of makes me wonder how you prevent your children from rebelling.
I said I do not tolerate them rebelling, I have no fear of it, I know they will "try" and rebel, but I do not stand for it.
I let them know that rebellion is not tolerated and that conversations are welcome.
They are not allowed to back talk their mother either. If they disagree they can state their case in a respectful manner or it will not be heard.
Sorry, what I meant was, do YOU use fear to stop them rebelling against you.
My answers are in blue above.
Every one in life has something they can't tolerate and it doesen't make them intolerant as it could be just one or two things.
I have a reason for asking, not just pulling everyone's chain.
Color only is visable when there is Light.
Without Light there is no color only dark.
He-he. That's closer.
But seriously, there are there quite a few things that most people are get all worked up on, including racism of course. How about child molesting? Cursing your mother? torturing your relatives? See what I mean
Torturing some relatives I am ok with, does that make me a Bad person
I can not stand getting shot at, never did get used to it, I will not tolerate the coffee pot being empty, and just because I tolerate the law breaker does not mean he shouldn't have to go to jail, despite how I feel about his soul.
Only while you're there...even so it becomes a routine like any other thing. You adapt or you suffer then you get out and adapt back to life or you go back. Jail and serving in the Marines have more in common then i could ever have imagined...you get to see pwople at their most basic operating level.
sounds like a hard learning experience to me, not one i think i would like actually....
It was a gift in disguise and an opportunity to learn what really matters in life and how close we all really are.
i am sure not everyone sees it like that, but nice you can
Depends on the time you have to spend there I guess
Or what nice boy is sharing a cell with ya, I could see us two sharing a cell
I cannot tolerate anyone who abuses children, or the elderly.
Thanks for the replies so far and I hope to get more.
I cannot tolerate hypocrisy. I hope to be tolerant of ignoramuses. I can't tolerate the dentist. I still am learning tolerance. Intolerance is irrational and hurts... I hope people who hub find my hubs tolerable... hmmm, hows that?
I have a problem with Christians argueing with Christians. That makes no sense to me at all, with so many that detest us we should be big enough to celebrate what we have in common.
Oh, not sure about that one there.
Paul, James, John etc...argued and reasoned (same word) with believers all the time.
And so did Messiah.
Yes, argumentation and debate are ways that we learn. The process should not be taken too personally or a sign that something is fundamentally wrong because two people are in disagreement.
Tolerance is unsustainable as a moral ethic. In fact, it ends up being a joke: those that regularly beat the "intolerant" drum are being intolerant of those they are exoriating. The ethic falls stillborn from those that chant it. They end up being the hypocrites they despise the most.
A person that is tolerant of evil actions is morally challenged. Those that tolerated the gassing of the Jews didn't get off because they were "tolerant."
There is no virtue in being a "tolerant person." It depends on what you are being tolerant of that matters.
I wonder if GOD is intolerant of things or people ?
I also wonder if HE is "all inclusive" as many say ?
How about is HE "seeker friendly" ?
"So many that detest us?"
You have to invent enemies to have them.
I do not think many people outside the fundies take you seriously enough to detest you!

As we move forward as a society we have often used the word tolerance in respect to what we need to accept about other people. If we just tolerate something or someone we are doing the bare minimum to learn to get along as a world society. So what is it we need to do to move forward? We accept...
