Toleration, tradition, modern timesSat, August 7, 2010 - 7:58 PM
What´s to say they dont get intolerant towards the fact that i´m tolerant towards what they are intolerant to?
It seems tolerance and free thinking only goes one way and somehow it has been decided what deserves it and not.
Appearantly it is ok to look down at my culture and history.
At distinctly Swedish traditions, sometimes older than any records (though changed somewhat through times as far as both meaning and content goes).
When my culture is critisized, ridiculed or simply portrayed inaccuratly, it is me "taking myself to seriously".
When i speak to Asatruar correcting anything historical (scientifically verifiable with sources) i get one hell of a discussion too if it doesent fit their pet theories.
When i discuss diffrent rites and orders of Freemasonry i get tangled in to the idiocy of "regularity" and who is "actually" a mason and who is not (i know my history there too).
Personally i celebrate differences.
Diversity is the hertage of mankind and the seed of freedom.
