Best of my Tumblr Part 3- What Tolerance Is:

Definition-

–noun1.a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward thosewhose opinions, practices, race, religion, nationality, etc.,differ from one’s own; freedom from bigotry.2.a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinionsand practices that differ from one’s own.3.interest in and concern for ideas, opinions, practices, etc.,foreign to one’s own; a liberalundogmatic viewpoint.
What this means: It means you give every ideal, philosophy, religion, and viewpoint an equal chance to prove itself as reasonable, useful, or at least non-malevolent. If it at least qualifies as non-malevolent you leave it alone because it is not hurting or exploiting anyone.  If it is malevolent it’s a civic duty to stop it.
What Tolerance is NOT: Tolerance is not bending over and letting someone else’s view point hurt, defame, subvert, or run over the rights, views, life, and happiness of other people. Tolerance is not allowing people to make vague threats of death and torture towards millions of people and not questioning because it’s in the name of a “God”.
