Kathryn Johanknecht I’m sorry, but intolerance for non-conformity of belief is the opposite of civil liberties. You may still be on the weaker end of a power imbalance, but you’ve adopted the mindset of your oppressors all the same. And in my view, have limited high ground in that regard. Evan Moss Oh FFS, there is no such thing as reverse oppression, oppression requires an imbalance of power. I can’t adopt the mindset of my oppressors, I don’t have the power to do that. When was the last time Christians thought you weren’t a human being worthy of human rights?

Kathryn Johanknecht There are still Christians today who insist that my love for my boyfriend is a perversion worthy of punishment. And I’m sorry, but a mindset doesn’t require social power. As a principle, intolerance is always intolerance. If you want a better society, it really has to be a better society. If you want a peaceful country, you have to be at peace with everyone. Including Christians. Granted, they need to return the favor and they often don’t. But as a principle, we should be better. And show radical tolerance, even if it’s not returned. Evan Moss The paradox of tolerance states that if a society is tolerant without limit, its ability to be tolerant is eventually seized or destroyed by the intolerant. Philosopher Karl Popper defined the paradox in 1945 in The Open Society and Its Enemies. “Less well known is the paradox of tolerance: Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. — In this formulation, I do not imply, for instance, that we should always suppress the utterance of intolerant philosophies; as long as we can counter them by rational argument and keep them in check by public opinion, suppression would certainly be unwise. But we should claim the right to suppress them if necessary even by force; for it may easily turn out that they are not prepared to meet us on the level of rational argument, but begin by denouncing all argument; they may forbid their followers to listen to rational argument, because it is deceptive, and teach them to answer arguments by the use of their fists or pistols. We should, therefore, claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant.”
