    What does a tolerant society do, when a portion of that society becomes intolerant? Can you successfully practice tolerance with intolerant people?

    Yes. Tolerance has everything to do with your attitude and nothing to do with anyone elses. It doesnt matter what they do, you can be tolerant, if you choose.

    But then i reject that tolerance is some overarching virtue that we should all be striving for in the first place. There are some things you shouldn't be tolerant towards.

    I don't know about the rest of you but I'm pretty intolerant of groups or individuals lopping off other people's head's because they don't believe the way they do.....just something about that just doesn't sit right

    Tolerance is the acceptance of evil.

    I don't think specifics are required.

    Or torpedoing a ship and killing 34 American sailors and maiming hundreds more in a false flag operation designed to draw America into an Israeli war.
