Intolerance


"America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance.
It is not.
It is suffering from tolerance of right and wrong,
truth and error,
virtue and evil,
Christ and chaos.
Our country is not nearly so much overrun with the bigoted as it is overrun with the broadminded…

In the face of this broadmindedness,
what America needs is intolerance."

~ Archbishop Servant of God Fulton Sheen

Molly - this is AMAZING! Trust Archbishop Sheen to have just the words to describe the situation! I'm going to refer to your post in my blog, if you don't mind. Have a great day!

Oh! This is so true! Leave it to Archbishop Sheen to speak it like it is. And this was years ago!
