‘Tolerance is a two-way street’, church leader says

The rich roots and spoiled fruits of liberal toleration

‘Don’t curb free speech in the name of tolerance’

The problem of neutral rhetoric

Intolerance as illiberalism

    Public Discourse: We live in intolerant times. A former Secretary of State is disinvited from speaking on campus. Corporate leaders are forced to resign because of their views on marriage. People are forced by the courts to violate their consciences. A prominent Senate leader calls Tea Party activists “anarchists” and, in a speech reminiscent of McCarthyism, brands the businessmen-philanthropist Koch brothers “un-American.” The Internal Revenue Service—harking back to the Johnson and Nixon eras—is accused of targeting individuals and groups for their political views. And government leaders routinely ignore laws they are sworn to uphold.
