TOLERANCE: modern explanation.
Tolerance is a worthy idea but apparently only certain ideas are considered worthy.
Tolerance provides an opportunity to learn from others while respecting and valuing their differences usually in religious and ethical beliefs. Prejudice and brings people of a community together.
Tolerance allows the existence of something that one dislikes or disagrees with without interference. It often is used to describe the social acceptance among classes, races and religions essentially saying that those who are a part of those groups are allowed to live peacefully..
Political Correctness plays a role today in the application of Tolerance. Selectively applying Tolerance to fit the misguided needs of some groups & precluding others is where the line in the sand is drawn. Muslim and illegal immigration are prime examples of Tolerance gone awry. Kind of reverse Tolerance.
