Reader: Where does the Springs fall on the tolerance spectrum?




Is Colorado Springs tolerant or intolerant? I have often thought the latter while portraying myself as truly tolerant. But alas, I must admit that I don't respect Republicans, conservatives or evangelicals for their views toward our society as a whole.

I've gotta rethink what tolerance really means to me, so I came up with this: Respecting the fact that we are all individuals. We are not, any one of us, a perfect human being. Therefore we must respect everyone's individualism and not impose our views on them. Tolerance isn't threatening. It should be embraced as an opportunity to learn from others. So what do you think? What does tolerance mean to you and where does Colorado Springs fall on that spectrum?
