I work at a private liberal arts college that carries no religious identity. I am often struck by the inconsistency in what many on campus deem as "tolerant." The definition of tolerant seems to necessitate that an individual give up any idea that is considered fundamentally true, and, so too if others do not adhere to that truth they are wrong.
The ironic reality is that there are absolute truths running around all over the place, especially on a college campus. It's simply that the absolute truths of Christianity are dismissed as radical, naive, socially unaware and the list goes on.
The truth? Tolerance is hollow. It affords peace that has no proposition for human change or love of neighbor.
