Tolerance is the virtue of the man without convictions. (G. K. Chesterton, 19th-20th century British literary critic)
Intolerance is a popular subject in today’s society. Believing in the right to freedom of speech, we must allow others to have their opinions and speak their mind. It is most disturbing, however, when those same voices refuse to allow anyone with a contrary opinion to speak. We must be open to listen as well as to speak.
Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry (James 1:19).
