I agree, Lee. ‘Tolerant’ deeply understates the power behind (anyone’s) advocacy. I think when folks use this word, the notion they’re *maybe* meaning to imply is ‘open-minded?’ Because, on the whole liberals are open-minded. However, again, we draw the line with senseless cruelty and gratuitious vulgarity. There are just some moral things (that seem like they should be common sense, at least in my mind) that should never been up for debate.
