No, it’s not. I think Mr. Chaput summed it up eloquently:
“We need to remember that tolerance is not a Christian virtue. Charity, justice, mercy, prudence, honesty — these are Christian virtues. And obviously, in a diverse community, tolerance is an important working principle. But it’s never an end itself. In fact, tolerating grave evil within a society is itself a form of serious evil.”
– Archbishop Charles Chaput
Which is not what I was replying about. He said “Being tolerate is why this country is in the dumper.” That is a generalization, which the person you quoted does not agree with. As you quoted Archbishop Charles Chaput stated “obviously, in a diverse community, tolerance is an important working principle.”
So you are stating that Christians are intolerant? I have never heard that before.
Depends on the topic. I think Christians tolerate a lot more than most religions or ideologies. But Christians do not tolerate evil, nor should they, nor should the tolerate evil acts or deeds or those that support them.
yes you were. you just don’t like being called out on it. I’ve read this thread 3 or 4 times to make sure I was understanding correctly. Maybe in your mind you were thinking differently but you wrote the opposite of it.
It is a reference to a movie about druggie criminals that rob drug stores. At least that is my reference to it. As the OP has not given an explanation, who knows. It is not likely a reference to the music group - a reference I only found just now, or a term first used in 1923, according to Merriam-Webster, which I was totally unaware of - I guess I am just not that old…
No, your very first reply from left field was “I thought Christians were tolerant” with no other defining explanation Then when given what Christians believe you say that’s not what I was talking about. Explain then what were you talking about? You have left it very much unsaid,
Yes, that is what you “think”. However, I believe Gary does understand. If you have an issue understanding what I wrote, I don’t believe attempting further clarification can help you. Read in context what I wrote, it should then make sense to you.
How so? I stated I believe Christians are tolerant. Gary agreed. He stated that Christians should not tolerate evil - I agree. What more is to be said?
