On Tolerance-

The truth that some refuse to acknowledge:


"They came first for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up."

I have this question that's been bothering me over the last few days... well, since Rain 'answered' my questions with so much PC crap, any way:

When does tolerance become appeasement?

When does appeasement become surrender?

And one of my original questions:

Why must we be tolerant of a religion that is intolerant of every other religion and way of life on the planet?

The answers are obvious...

Aren't they?
