All Beliefs are Welcome Here!

I think one of the biggest problems of the world is the intolerance of not only other religions, but of other people as a whole. But I do believe intolerance and negativity have their place in the world. If it weren't for the intolerant, the tolerant wouldn't seem so, well, tolerable.

tolerare (Latin) = to suffer something, to endure something.

That is not the same thing as acceptance.

It is a nice concept to coexist, and it seems it it not our calling/ spirtituality that has a problem with the concept.

Hels' Maire- Some people won't accept others, but they can be tolerate.

*tolerant.

I am slightly peeved by people who use big words but can't even command their own mother tongue to express clear and concise thoughts.

That being said, I am not likely to *suffer* anyones bullshit. I use the 'Zero Tolerance' slogan, and I love it.

Sorry for making a common mistake 'tolerant'. And honestly it doesn't come off as a big word. Can't you accept or tolerant another's mistake?

*tolerate.

I am too indifferent for things like that, Corey. Which means that I do not require apologies or anything. I just notice things and file them away, in this case as 'slightly peeved me', and it will influence the way I read any further comments you make AND how I reply, if I reply.

A love for precise language is something not everyone calls their own, I have to *accept* that.

 

Tolerance is always a temporary thing, acceptance is to arrange oneself with circumstances more or less for good.

It's good to be very precise. I've tended to make several mistakes grammar wise recently.
