Concepts create idols; only wonder grasps anything. - St Gregory of Nyssa

DH and I were having a discussion a few days ago about tolerance, and how the definition has changed.

August 22 from World Around the Net:

This is true tolerance: you put up with people who believe things you disagree with.  Today's false tolerance is partly a belief that you cannot question certain activities, and partly that you have to adhere to a certain set of approved concepts and beliefs or are hateful.  Tolerance has been destroyed by a systematic effort to redefine the term from something essentially beneficial to society to a tyranny of ideas.

The entire article is good.
