I am intolerant!

posted by Ruth Graham

The word “tolerant” is used a lot these days. We are supposed to be tolerant of a wide range of things and if we aren’t were are deemed “racist” or some other ugly label. Well, I’VE HAD IT!

We are in a mess in this country because we have tolerated too much. We have tolerated the government spending more than it takes in…we have tolerated disrespect of authority…we have tolerated foul language…we have tolerated our borders being assaulted…we have tolerated bad behavior in public figures…we have tolerated the 10 Commandments being removed from halls of  justice…we have tolerated prayer being removed from our schools…we have tolerated immorality…we have tolerated “dirty” politics…we have tolerated immodesty….we have tolerated double standards….we have tolerated revisionist history…

I am intolerant of the intolerable. I am not ashamed to say it! Oh, I know there are those that would argue that everyone interprets things from their own paradigm. Phooey! We used to have standards that everyone understood. Having standards today is “intolerant”.  I, for one, miss the standards. It is like having  the painted lines on the highway. You know in which lane to be so things don’t get chaotic. What if the Olympics said everything is relative and we want to be “inclusive”? The games would soon be irrelevant. Our society is becoming irrelevant. 

We need standards. We thrive in that enviornment – our society is dying in this “tolerant” and “inclusive” age. We can stop it but it’s up to us – we need to become more intolerant.

Have you ever been depressed? Low? Lower than a "lizard's belt buckle", as my mother used to say. "Cast down", as King David said in Psalm 42. David wrote he cried day and night while men taunted him. He thought back to the good times which made him feel worse. He uses the word,  "disturbed" -

The Iron Dome
Last Saturday night, my little town did its fireworks - we do them the week after the 4th. As I crawled into bed, I could hear all the booms and see the glow from the explosions in the distance. Of course, I couldn't help but think of those in war-torn areas of he world. I remember being in Sar

A Pedophile's Dream...Sex Traffickers Welcome!
There is a lot of talk about the immigration issue and the situation on our Southern border. But I have not heard anyone mention that having all these unaccompanied children in our border states and beyond is a real dream come true for pedophiles and sex-traffickers. Strangers are allowed to step fo

What Cancer Cannot Do
It seems as if cancer is an epidemic! Sometimes I wonder if it is the stress-filled and face -paced lives we all live that create the environment for cancers. Everyone knows someone suffering from it - it robs so much from  the person and family. Someone passed this on to me. It is so well don

Prisoner Exchange
Well, there certainly has been a dust-up over the release of the American held captive by the Taliban in exchange for 5 Taliban warriors. I am quite sure there is a whole lot more to the story than we will ever know. And whatever your political persuasion - whether Republican or Democrat - the excha
