On the grounds that Hitler could also have said the same thing to be left to do his 'thing' - NO
It is encumbent on us as part of society to criticise and to not tolerate dangerous faults in other members that endanger society.
Faults I have----many.
Faults I see in you-----zilch.
The odds are stacked in my favor, so I accept!
All levity aside, SirDent, that's a very kind offer you've made. I would think anyone would accept it. But when it gets right down to it, some aren't so tolerant after all! Some won't accept your terms because they have their own intolerances they wanna hold onto. And I wouldn't accept it either just at face value (in a general way from just anyone) because I'm not politically-correct; everyone stands for something, everyone has their "line in the sand" that they won't cross, everyone holds fast to their views on some things. Well, almost everyone does.
I have more faults than anyone even knows about.
To forgive and see past another's faults is Godly and righteous. God has granted grace to all who wants it and will accept it. We a must have faults before we can get this grace.
I agree that many are intolerant. I have been intolerant myself, more than a few times.
Of course I will over look yours Jesus teaches forgiveness to all.
SirDent, Sure I will. We all have faults.
Isn't that called "tolerance"?
I find acceptance more my style. It makes forgiveness easier, both for myself and of others.
tolerance doesn't mean one has to agree with another
I agree. It also doesn't mean we have to accept those who disagree with us as being right.
Hey Bailey, I didn't say it did.
Tolerance is a level of acceptance. No, you don't have to agree. The common ground isn't found in agreement, it's already an established position, people cannot deny. When you tolerate someone, you accept their opinions or beliefs, for what they are, regardless of what that person thinks or what you think.
It's actually summed up in one statement- We agree to disagree.
Full acceptance is about accepting people for who they are, regardless of faults, beyond tolerance, but brought on by love and compassion.
There is a difference. The OP made a blanketed statement, which suggested tolerance more than acceptance. Why? Because, it came from a religious based individual. Religion, in some manner, teaches tolerance followed by forgiveness. It doesn't mention acceptance.
Tolerance is a division and Acceptance is a inclusion.
Didn't know I had any!
Whoops, sorry, I thought I was a liberal Democrat, union member for a minute there!
I'll play Sir Dent. Yes. With ground rules set in place. As long as your faults and mine don't infringe on the rights of others to live in peace and harmony. I would hope, as a tolerant person, you would be kind enough to share your thoughts when my actions fell outside of these boundaries.
Everyones actions fall outside the lines of tolerance from time to time. All are guilty and none are innocent.
To my knowledge, I have never infringed upon the rights of others to believe or do as they choose.
I thought we were talking real life. Not here. But you're right. No one can infringe upon another person's rights here.
