The Intolerance of Today’s Tolerance Movement

There is a modern myth that true tolerance consists of neutrality. Nothing could be further from the truth. One can not tolerate something unless one disagrees with that thing. This important point has been lost in the modern perversion of the word tolerance. Now, if you think something is wrong, one is considered intolerant. In his Townhall.com article entitled "Gen. Pace & the Myth of Moral Neutrality,” Greg Koukl writes that the buzz surrounding Gen. Pace's moral comments "reflects one of the most entrenched assumptions of moral relativism in our society today: that there is such a thing as morally neutral ground, a place of complete impartiality where no judgments nor any forcing of personal views are allowed. Each of us takes a neutral posture towards the moral convictions of others. This is the essence of tolerance, or so the argument goes."
