Why Tolerate the Hate?
Very interesting article here. Multiculturalism insists that we should tolerate all diversity, but I tend to agree with this author that there must be limits. Religious extremism is dangerous, whether it is radical Islam or fundamentalist Christianity. While I would certainly prefer to see religion fail due to the spread of rationality, intelligence, and compassion for others, it is difficult to remain hopeful that this will happen soon. Because of the threat posed by extremist groups, it just might be time to consider alternatives. Of course, I'm not expecting much while the American president and majority of congress are Christian extremists.
