I guess it depends on what you consider to be intolerant. If tolerance means you ignore key differences between religious faiths and accept them all as equally valid paths to enlightenment, then I (along with most evangelicals) would be considered intolerant. If it is intolerant to recognize that Jesus claimed to be the only Son of God and furthermore claimed that the only way to the Father was through Him, then count me (along with Paul, Peter, John, Luke, Matthew, and the other apostles) amoung the intolerant. I guess that makes us religious bigots. OTOH, I am also an economic bigot, since I think free enterprise capitalism is good and big government socialism is bad. And I guess I’m a political bigot since I think right of center limited government policies are good and leftist, excessive regulatory government policies are bad. Welcome to the Intolerant Republican Party.

Nope. It’s the inability to accept people into the mainstream political life because you disagree with their religious beliefs.

It’s the Mormon who won’t vote for a Catholic. The Baptist who won’t vote for a JW. A Jew who won’t vote for a Muslim.

Gee. You sound Mormon, because that’s exactly what it teaches. Welcome to the fold!
