    I will overlook your faults, will you overlook mine?

      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.

        I agree with the second part especially.  The problem is in defining what is dangerous and what is not.  Many muslims say Christianity is dangerous.

      Let's see....

      Faults I have----many.
      Faults I see in you-----zilch.

      The odds are stacked in my favor, so I accept!  big_smile

      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.

    Isn't that called "tolerance"? hmm

    I find acceptance more my style. It makes forgiveness easier, both for myself and of others. wink

      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.

          Cagsilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          It's not about being right or wrong.

          Acceptance isn't based on it. However, Tolerance is. wink

        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. wink

    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. smile

      SirDentposted 7 years agoin reply to this



      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.

            Ok. Then we're cool. Still, I stand by the statement that I would want you to tell me if my actions were outside of the bounds of allowing others to live in peace and happiness. I think we all deserve to be happy with who we are.
