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.
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.
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
You are right, I think I meant I hate racism most but I do hate child abuse, and I hate cursing ones parents, torture in general, slow drivers, druggies, ok bugger it I am not tolerant at all. I see what you mean
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.
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?
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.
