Tolerance: what it it and isn’t

If one supports another’s position or actions, one doesn’t need to “tolerate” it. We don’t tolerate what we love; we tolerate what we hate; we tolerate people with whom we disagree, not our kindred spirits. But these days, approval is demanded for behavior we consider immoral, and when we refuse to approve, we are called intolerant. But we’re not.
