That would be a good thing if we all knew what tolerance was.

Sep 15, Katrina Best rated it liked it. I just started this 60 pg. Yes, I finished it in the same evening. Even though the author suggests passing it out--I don't think I personally would. I felt that at times the author stood on a soapbox. While he tried to use 'real-world' examples and articles, I would not hand this book to any of my atheist or agnostic friends--because I'm pretty sure they wouldn't finish reading it. I am planning on loaning it to a catholic friend of mine.

I agree with much but certainly not all of what the author says, although at times I think he is overly alarmist - I would say calling the trend toward absolute relativism a "dictatorship", for example, in unnecessary and an exaggeration. Still, this was an interesting read. Feb 11, Karen rated it really liked it.
