Complete Tolerance = Contempt

“No deeply religious man is satisfied with a universal tolerance of religion, partly because, if his convictions are profound, he is so keenly aware of the terrible mistakes, intellectually as well as practically, which can be made in the name of religion. The truly religious man knows that we cannot responsibly state a faith unless we claim that it is true, and that we cannot responsibly claim that it is true unless there is some means of disproving it…. Complete tolerance, therefore, is not a mark of respect, but rather a mark of contempt.” (Trueblood)
