or it differentiates us from talking period. There is just as much evidence for those in peace talks that it changes nothing and only makes matter worse. I am a tolerant person in a different way with a different definition. I learned that being tolerant any other way only gets you less respected and walked on by others. I give tolerance and respect to those who give it back and pay close attention to those who are the worse offenders. I don't have to talk to anyone I don't like nor do I have to tolerate a lot of things. Calling the police and using my tax dollar to my advantage is my tolerance these days.
I think interfaith preaches a lot of stuff like a religion and things like tolerance but it isn't exactly factual or something I agree is really happening or changing anything for the better. I view it as another disturbing religion on the marketplace and also a religion for people who love to argue.
Any way is has been fun once again. I don't find discussing this stuff all that wonderful, but I have enjoyed your company and once in awhile that does happen here. Let's chat again.
