The Problem of “Tolerance”
Why Catholics must make distinctions between Persons and Ideas.
The word TOLERANCE is one of those problematic notions in our postmodern world of Political Correctness.
It gets thrown about loosely, this word TOLERANCE, evoking a certain emotional response. It sounds like an automatic GOOD – what is there to argue about? Who could object to tolerance?
The world of Political Correctness vilifies the “intolerant” Christian, even as atheistic tyrants like Hitler, Stalin, Chairman Mao wrought campaigns of unfathomable torture and genocide. One would think these examples of recent memory would put an end to the tired accusation that Christianity is history’s worst perpetrator of violence and evil. Unfortunately, however, in today’s increasingly relativistic and secular society, the vitriol directed at peaceful-but-intransigent Christians is only getting louder and – itself – more intolerant.
