A man once asked a group of people of which I was one: we all believe ourselves to be tolerant. We might tolerate people of other races, other sexual orientations, with different political beliefs. But are we tolerant towards those who are not?

Are we tolerant of terrorists? Of religious fanatics? Are we tolerant of those who are different in ways that we find absolutely unacceptable?

And if not – can we still call ourselves tolerant?
