The worst thing you can be in today's society (USA) is labeled "intollerant."
If only I would see evidence that the majority of people actually followed through with ridding themselves of intolerance...particularly organized religion.
Speaking of a definition of tolerance, I would see that as meaning for instance that you don't have to embrace and do that for yourself that which I do, which does not harm you, but you don't either A. try to stop me B. try to change me C. not try to legislate me (this is always the area in which the right always seems to totally forget that smaller government BS they're always touting...perfectly happy to invent a law to stop someone from doing something they don't like ala "Church Lady") D. keep your thoughts to yourself basically That's tolerance. Merely agreeing not to kill me, isn't really enough. Although a good many self proclaimed christians would just as soon kill a goodly number of humans, whom they deem subhuman. Not to mention the death penalty etc.
Sorry, I'm getting way off topic!
Back to Jesus...he seemed pretty tolerant, at least from the reports.
