What does it mean to be tolerant? “Tolerance or toleration is a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, practices, race, religion, nationality, etc., differ from one’s own; freedom from bigotry”.(Wikipedia) The phrase “being tolerant” is commonly used today with the acceptance of anything, even when it includes immoral and evil things. Being a Catholic priest faithful to the Teachings of Jesus Christ that have been handed down to us through the Church, I’m considered “intolerant” when I stand up for these Teachings, especially when it comes to the protection of innocent life in the womb or preserving the sacredness of Marriage between one man and one woman. Yet the same people who accuse the Catholic Church for being intolerant, usually are the most intolerant themselves. I just read the following article from “lifenews.com”: Abortion Activists Rip Out Pews, Spray paint Profane Graffiti in Catholic Church. These actions in Chile, Spain, and Belgium were done because these proponents of death (abortion) didn’t like the views of those who believe that every human life is sacred and deserves protection, from the moment of conception to natural death. Let us pray for those who are confused, thus supporting immorality and evil. And let us all be truly tolerant of others, yet always remaining firm in the Truths that has been given to us by Jesus Christ.
