Interesting though. They have formed a religion which gives them a high from following these practices. Being tolerant is one of their greatest highs as well as what they see as an unforgivable sin to be intolerant.

"... although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools,... therefore God also gave them up to... the lusts of their hearts, (they) exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator,... For this reason God gave them up to vile passions... And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting... who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them." - Romans 1:21,ff
Their evil thoughts and motives have birthed a religion unto themselves and now they (and our country over which they have so much sway) are under the Wrath of God.
Is it any wonder things are turning out so badly in this once fair and pleasant land, whose people and leaders once enthusiastically revered and acknowledged God, even imperfectly?
Yet their much-vaunted tolerance is very intolerant of ideas other than their own. In many ways, they have long been “the people of hate”, who have no limits to how much they can hate.
Some, like Dr. Eric R. Pianka, even call for the extermination of mankind, or the vast majority (90%) thereof. (His proposal was of a pandemic plague of ebola to do it.) This is not unique among the left, as similar ideas are a reoccurring theme. People such as Paul R. Ehrlich, of “The Population Bomb” theory, to Dave Foreman of Earth First!, are just the latest in a long run of such people.
I truly wish I had a recording or transcript from many years ago, when Jesse Jackson was seeking the Democrat nomination for president. He went on a talk show, where he was peppered with questions, obviously flustering him. Then one of the hosts asked him, “What about all those people who would be opposed, some violently, to your presidency?”
Taken off guard, he blurted out that “We would have to build some kind of camps to put them in”, or words very close to that. It goes to a deeply held mindset for such ideas to even exist in a person.
Likewise, before Obama even had the nomination, there was a typical nonsense thread on another forum, as to “What if he is the antichrist?” At one point a liberal blurted out that he actually *wished* Obama was the antichrist.
“Because then he would be powerful, and give us what we want, and hurt the people we hate”, was his reply.
This was even shocking to some of the more level headed atheists, who though they did not believe in God, were not so totally convinced that they would be willing to embrace “the ultimate evil”, for the *benefits*.
