Do we still have the right of free speech and how tolerant must we be?
Continual tolerance of a thing leads to its acceptance. G.K. Chesterton once said: “tolerance is the virtue of the man without convictions.”
Is that also his vice? To accept something is to allow it out in the open and marketing usually follows.
If we are against some idea and we are speaking and writing against it does that make us some type of hateful person or are we using our right of free speech?
One of our founding fathers, John Adams, said: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Live and let live sounds good up to a point. But when enough people start living in the wrong way, letting others live in the wrong way without a sound, then it may become a live and let die culture.
