Liberals always love to howl about the supposed intolerance of conservatives, especially those of the social conservative variety. The truth of the matter is that some of the worst hatred and intolerance you can see is on the left. In this column, David Limbaugh comments on this subject -- one that we've covered several times with David on my radio program.
As an aside, you might want to check out this little BBC story. Actor Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame is recording a public service announcment to try and stop homosexuals from committing suicide -- a laudable goal especially considering the eternal consequences. You can repent of sin before death, but after death it's too late. But Mr. Radcliffe isn't thinking of that eventuality. No, he's fine and dandy with homosexuality, and in fact demonstrates his tolerance with this remark . . .
"I have always hated anybody who is not tolerant of gay men or lesbians or bisexuals. Now I am in the very fortunate position where I can actually help or do something about it."
Never mind that many are opposed to -- or if you want to use the misunderstood word, intolerant of -- homosexuality on moral grounds, not hatred. There are certainly those out there who hate homosexuals as people, but that certainly isn't the Christian motivation. There might well be hate for sin, but not the individual, because we're all sinners. Sin just manifests itself in different people in different ways. In fact, that's why Christ came -- to redeem us and deliver us from our sin.
Unfortunately for Mr. Radcliffe, he hates people by his own admission.
