I remember a saying from “Catholic Answers” (I think that was the publication, can’t be sure)Loosely quoted:
“The problem with tolerance is that TRUTH will suffer at some point.”
We as a country have been SO TOLERANT of behaviours against our moral fiber that TRUTH is suffering. It’s that whole “reduction of what is acceptable” that is hurting us as a nation.
The followers of “Religion #2” are completely intolerant, tyrannical and fanatic to a degree that many of those in “Religion #1” do not yet understand. Hopefully more are waking up.
The followers of “Religion #2” cannot tolerate truth, morality, absolutes (other than the ones they themselves make up), purity, or indeed, anyone who does not bow down to Them.
That’s they way they are and I’ve had vivid and painful personal experiences.
