Why Aren't You Tolerant?
Help to Answer the “Shock Troops of Tolerance”
We've become a very “tolerant” nation. Unfortunately, tolerance as it is now understood, is anything but openness to
opposing views. The tolerance of yesteryear meant a willingness to gracefully bear with differing opinions. Nowadays, it means you must
accept and approve of others' morally objectionable ideas. If you don't, watch out. Angry death threats followed a 14-year-old
Maryland girl's sweetly-worded plea asking the Maryland Senate to keep marriage the union of a man and a woman. One online post said,
“If I ever see this girl, I will kill her. That's a promise.” When it comes to moral issues and the distinctives of
Christian belief—especially the view that Jesus is the only way to God—you don't need to be intimidated. Why Aren't You
Tolerant? sheds light and instills confidence to help you understand and answer the objections raised against Christian beliefs and morals
by the “shock troops of tolerance.” This quick guide to the new tolerance and its arguments equips you with the power of truth
to “make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you” (I Peter 3:15).
