Interesting article on the roots of toleration.
« on: March 27, 2014, 10:29:41 PM »

This came up because a local Christian told me in a comment to one of my comments on a letter to the editor that I should be ashamed of myself for tolerating 'immoral' lifestyles - specifically, homosexuality.  I simply pointed out that toleration is at its heart self-control, which is one of the things Paul wrote of as a "fruit of the Spirit" in Galatians 5: 22-23, and suggested he think about that for a while.

I thought the article itself was interesting enough to post here, though.
Please let me know if you have problems with something I say, so that we can discuss it amicably.
