Tolerance or Toleration – there is a difference
Our laws have progressed to take us passed color barriers of the past, yet, many are bringing those stigmas back and using the law to exert their bigotry, biases and racism as a form of expression that is hateful and destructive. There are intentional efforts out there to separate us again by color for various reasons, most of them theological, personal and political in nature. Using religion, we have armed ourselves with fear and opposition to change or different cultures. We, as a nation, have become oppressed towards anything and anyone who does not look like us, speak like us, dress like us or pray or belief in God like us.
Thus this has contradicted our laws in many ways but quietly reinforced by those who are filled with hate and ignorance about race or religion and not bothering to seek the truth, but rather, follow the falseness of others who speak lies.
We have become a nation of politically correct people who allow the practice of passively or quietly but deliberately, allowing or permitting acts of bigotry, prejudicial attitudes or behaviors and other things we disapprove of and say nothing. In other words, we have developed a pathway of toleration that is self-destructive and destructive to our society. Under the disguise of religion, we have been taught to endure or bear the burdens of toleration. However, these "tolerations" are skewed to benefit the sponsors of such speech, ideas or acts.
They are not fair, objective or developed to sustain harmony or peace, but rather to attack or criticize the opinions of others who do not conform to their own religion or practice and therefore, lash out with harmful and damnation of words and acts that creates a fear that those condemned beliefs, practices or racial differences, all who are different from their own, are harmful and must cease to exist. Some religions extend this hate and fear to the point of genocide.
We need to examine toleration when it comes to religion and allow various cultures and groups to engage in their own beliefs and practices without condemnation as long as their actions do not interfere or impede the lives of others who do not want to be exposed or taught this different way of life or beliefs.
It is acceptable to disapprove, decline or refuse to accept other means of religions and that should be made clear. Whether you are an atheist or a Christian, a Jew or an Arab, the matter of religion is private and should not be interfered with unless it is imposed forcefully or illegally.
Toleration and tolerance are two different words and have two different meanings.
You must know the differences.
Tolerance is an attitude of mind that implies non-judgmental acceptance of different lifestyles or beliefs, whereas toleration implies putting up with something that one disapproves of that but that is taught, fostered, mentored or sponsored by someone else who’s influence on your own mind, frees you for thinking for yourself.
Unfortunately, through the evolution or revolution of time and space, an analysis of modern doctrines today has been expanded to include political and ethnic groups, homosexuals and other minorities, and human rights embodies the principle of legally enforced toleration.
