Tolerance vs Acceptance. Totally different. Early Americans (i.e. Puritans) were tolerant of others beliefs as long as they didn’t stray to far from their beliefs. Early Americans tolerated others beliefs as long as you lived elsewhere. Just not in their community. 🙂
Many Americans today on Left and Right still in the tolerance mold. I guess “Acceptance” not “Acceptable”. People PRIDE THEMSELVES on their “Tolerance”! 🙂
So BIG of Them!
