Intolerant Tolerance?

The latest issue of Focus on the Family Magazine contains a great article by Josh McDowell and Bob Hostetler that compares the traditional and current definitions of “tolerance”, and explains in a clear way why the new tolerance leads to a condemnation of Christianity.

Here’s a taste:? “Tolerance traditionally means simply to recognize and respect others’ beliefs, practices and so on, without necessarily agreeing or sympathizing.”? The new tolerance “means to consider every individual’s beliefs, values, lifestyle and truth claims as equally valid.”

They go on to explain the consequences of this change, and how Christians should respond.

I wasn’t able to find the exact article online, but there is a very similar article called Truth and Tolerance here.
