A look back: Intolerance of ‘Tolerance’

This is truly unbelievable—but not really.

I want to take a ‘rewind back through time’ to August of 2012 and see if there is anything to be learned for today’s unforeseen confrontations. Surely history is destined to repeat itself. The question is, will you be informed? Will you be sharp enough to mete out truth and spot a charlatan?

Remember when a lesbian NYC Counsel Speaker wanted to ban Chic-fil-A restaurants because Mr. Cathy (Chic-fil-A owner) didn’t agree or condone gay marriage? Her justification was, “NYC is a place where we celebrate diversity. We do not believe in denigrating others. We revel in the diversity of all our citizens and their families.”

She continued, “We are a city that believes our diversity is our greatest strength and we will fight anything and anyone that runs counter to that.”

SAY WHAT?

Didn’t you just say that you “revel in differing ideas” and also say that you “would fight anyone with differing ideas?” So which is it? Do you want differing ideas or identical ideas?

What’s sad and scary is that this contradictory, sycophantic ranting is what is becoming the modus operandi of the secular world and liberalism. Actually, Mrs. Quinn, you do NOT celebrate diversity. Celebrating diversity means celebrating a difference in opinion whether or not it is in line with your particular beliefs. When you try to run a business out of a city because it has differing beliefs than you, that’s not “cultivating diversity.”

Can you fathom what would have happened if Mrs. Quinn was a Christian and was trying to oust a business because they supported gay marriage? World War 3 and Armageddon would have spawned into existence simultaneously.

This is the problem with those who call themselves tolerant  who are like Mrs. Quinn: they support anything and everything as long as it’s not 1) contrary to their views and ESPECIALLY, 2) conservative and/or Christian. But you are smart enough to know that’s not tolerance. If you want to proudly wear the colors of tolerance and celebrate diversity, lets actually see it for ALL people and not everyone but Christians.

True Tolerance and Free Speech: The Blogging Begins Again

I took a long break from blogging. I’m revving the blogging engines up again. In focusing on what matters most to me, the threat to true tolerance and free speech in this country is at the fore. This will be my renewed focus. I hope you come along for the ride.

It saddens me that people become deceived, and refuse to consider views that don’t mirror their own. We see it everyday in the news and in our own lives. A growing number of people are taking it upon themselves to be the thought police. Offended and emotionally charged, they accuse others of bigotry and wrongdoing. This isn’t because anyone has committed a bigoted act but rather because someone merely has an opposing viewpoint.  

Freedom of speech today is only free in the sense that you are free not to bring it out in public. This is especially true if a view is conservative or Christian. If a christian ideal slips passed your lips by accident and someone hears, beware. The fact that you would utter something so contrary to their sycophantic ideology will be so egregiously appalling to them that their unstoppable impulse will be to attack you where it hurts–personally. Have you ever experienced this?

While they are busy spewing ad hominem hatred, no one remembers what the actual debate was about. Dazzled by the illusion, the audience of the public doesn’t notice the slight of hand or the truth of the matter–they are being tricked.

ONE THING becomes clear: Speak at your own risk. If what you say is not the ordained sentiment of the though police, you will become an enemy of diversity and tolerance. Never-mind the fact that they are immune to this obvious hypocrisy in their actions and it seems most of their spectators are as well.

WE must continue to be kind and loving, but let us not dare give up. It only takes one person to make a difference. If we give up in speaking reasonably and redirecting conversations to the real issues, intolerance wins and speech will no longer be free.

There are a few who hold on to their convictions while at the same time keep their minds open to opposing ideas. They know that those who share differing views do not have to be seen as the enemy. They believe that everyone should be free to disagree with each other without the opposing party calling names or hurling insults.

True tolerance is more than just putting up with people who disagree with you–it’s having love for people who disagree with you. 

This blog site will be founded upon this Love, remembering that everyone has been made in the image and likeness of God. All have value regardless of their views. But we must contend for Truth in kindness and gentleness. This blog site will be an ever reminder of this.
