Tolerance is the idea that if you feel any amount of discomfort, moral opposition, or logical distress, you need to suppress all of it and embrace a “live and let live” philosophy. This sounds nice, unless you happen to make someone uncomfortable with any beliefs you have as a Christian, white person, gun owner, or conservative; then you aren’t being tolerant anymore and no one else has to be either. It isn’t rational, but that’s what tolerance is all about.
