Doug Wilson on the Tolerance of Diversity

Doug Wilson was recently speaking at Indiana University, setting forward a Christian view of sexual ethics. As he reports, there was an attempt made to shout him out of the place. Here’s the video.

That’s a great observation at the end,

Diversity has 2 fundamental tenets, as far as I’ve been able to glean from my interaction with the tolerance police. The first is that they have an absolute commitment to free speech, the second tenet is “shut up!”

Those who expouse tolerance generally are only tolerant of those who agree with them.  Is it me or does that seem…wrong?

NOPE. You are correct, B. Hunter. It is very wrong! I have had the same experience. Those who say they are “tolerant” are actually very intolerant.  Did Doug Wilson get to give his speech? I will give credit to the Assistant Dean of Students for making clear to the audience what the students had signed when they enrolled.  If they don’t like the man or his topic, simple- STAY AWAY!!

<quote>The second talk, on redemption sexuality, was about Mary Magdalene, and was about how God the Father arranged for His divine Son to marry a prostitute.</quote>

I just witnessed a demonstration of tolerance at our vestry meeting this week. In our ongoing dispute over contributing matching gifts to PP, another vestry member (I finally have some company!) spoke against it. That led to a “spirited” discussion; two fo the really rabid pro-PP people picked up their toys and went home. That’s the way they handle disputes. They can’t counter with logical arguments; so they leave, or shout you down, or whatever.

It helps to understand these people better if you imagine them in crisp, brown shirts.

LOL Jeffersonian!  Thanks for the laugh! But you are right and that is indeed very scary.
