Tolerance : Comments

By Gary Brown, published 10/3/2006

The key is tolerance: let them go to hell, if thatís their destiny in your view, in their own way.

Good article Gary.

Although Muslims knew about the cartoons since last year and many like me, found them arrogant and stupid. I was not angry with the Danish people because you can't penalise a group because of the actions of one or few. The portrayed riots were politically motivated in my view.

Keep it up,

Peace,

Not quite sure what this article was contributing to an already heavily commentated area. Muslim extremists should be more tolerent? Well yeah, of course. But be careful to not defend the ideals of free speech by not letting those who dislike something speak out about it. Both are equally entitled to their right

"let them go to hell" - yeah right - easier said than done.

With all due respect to the author - his lack of personal spiritual or religious belief makes him an outsider to the heart of the issue.

To throw comments about religious matters - islamic or christian - is unqualified and out of his league.

Tolerence is Hell - but what would you know?

'With due respect to the author', Coach? You have shown none to him or others who do not adhere to a religious faith. You devalue or discount his comments just because he doesn't have a religious faith. Isn't that intolerant of you?

"To throw comments about religious matters - islamic or christian - is unqualified and out of his league."

The same can be said regarding those who follow a specific religion (say, Christianity) and then set upon and demonize another (for example, Islam) from outside. It doesn't have to just be those who follow "no" religion and comment on religion from an outsiders position.

Strange one coach.

A belief that there is no god is as valid a spiritual belief as any other. If you are "religious", you have no greater experience of hell, than an atheist does. You may have a belief in it, but that does not give you greater authority on it ... unless you can prove to me that you've been there and come back.
