Intolerance – refusal to accept differences, unwillingness or refusal to accept people who are different from you, or views, beliefs, or lifestyles that differ from your own, bigotry, prejudice, narrow-mindedness, fanaticism, small-mindedness. This is what intolerance means and how many people do you know who are guilty of this?
We see this every day and it makes me feel so sad to think we can do this to each other. We are all in this life and world together, and apart from our differences why can’t we accept each other for who and what we are instead of pushing each other away?
I don’t care what you believe in or what your race or creed is, you are my brother and sister on earth. We are all connected in some way or another. There is a saying in Wiccan circles: First do no harm. Why can’t we live like this together in peace in harmony?
Why do we have to hurt each other and offend and criticize our different ways of living? None of us have all the answers and we can ask questions but not to belittle someone in the process. We should stand together against the onslaught of evil forces and love each other the way we are supposed to.
What is happening in our world that we can’t stand to hear someone else’s view or opinion on a subject. Life is already so difficult and if we can tolerate each other and love one another, it will make it easier for all of us.
