Tolerant Quotes (3 quotes)
A man who is convinced of the truth of his religion is indeed never tolerant. At the least, he is to feel pity for the adherent of another religion but usually it does not stop there. The faithful adherent of a religion will try first of all to convince those that believe in another religion and usually he goes on to hatred if he is not successful. However, hatred then leads to persecution when the might of the majority is behind it.
I do not forget that Medicine and Veterinary practice are foreign to me. I desire judgment and criticism upon all my contributions.

What is terrorism? Terrorism in some sense is a reaction against the creation of a type one [planet-wide advanced] civilization. Now most terrorists cannot articulate this. What theyre reacting to is not modernism. What theyre reacting to is the fact that were headed toward a multicultural tolerant scientific society and that is what they dont want. They dont want science. They want a theocracy. They dont want multiculturalism. They want monoculturalism. So instinctively they dont like the march toward a type one civilization. Now which tendency will win? I dont know, but I hope that we emerge as a type one civilization.
