To the Editor:
Just because some people are easily offended does not make me “intolerant.”
I’m sorry it offends you when I say “Merry Christmas.” But, you don’t care when my belief is mocked by public displays of “beer trees” and signs declaring “We don’t need Christ in Christmas” by those who don’t believe the same as me.
The fact that I say “Merry Christmas” does not make me “intolerant” of your beliefs, so why are you “intolerant” of mine?
I’m sorry it offends you that I believe marriage is a union between a man and a woman. That does not automatically make me “intolerant” toward those who think otherwise; yet I am ridiculed and called names because of my belief.
Why are you not as “tolerant” toward me as I am of you?
You wish to squelch beliefs different than your own and at the same time you expect everyone else to “tolerate” yours.
It seems, in your pursuit of “tolerance,” you have become the most “intolerant” among us.
