Drudge Report is carrying a story right now in which Elton John calls for a total ban on religion, because religion is intolerant.
Uhhh…. Elton, I don’t think you fully grasp the concept of “intolerance.”
Can we all say a big “Duh” in unison for him? I mean, come ON.
It points out a very common occurance, though. How many times have I heard “We shouldn’t tolerate religion, because religion is intolerant” in one form or another. It’s probably the single most moronic things that Athiests and Liberals spout. (Please note that I differentiated between the two, despite their many simliarities.)
Ok, I fully acknowledge that religion as a whole is intolerant of certain behaviors. That’s… kinda the point, guys. Religion is all about teaching right from wrong. Which means that some things are wrong. Which we shouldn’t tolerate.
You may disagree on what those things are, and I think that’s just fine.
However, it’s rather damaging to your “accepting and all inclusive” relativistic BS argument when you say that we should therefore be intolerant of religion.
