I like this quote…

by Charles Cherry

“Treat people as equally valuable, but treat ideas as if some are better than others…because they are. Some ideas are true, some are false. Some are brilliant, others are dangerous. And some are just plain silly. To say so does not violate any meaningful standard of tolerance. Real tolerance…is about how we treat people, not ideas.” …

“Whenever you are charged with intolerance, always ask for a definition. If tolerance means neutrality, then no one is ever tolerant because no one is ever neutral about his own opinions. This kind of tolerance is a myth.” (100-101, Greg Koukl)1
