Intolerance is the unwillingness to accept views, beliefs, or behaviour that differ from one's own.
In the west, we love to say that we are inclusive. We love to see ourselves as tolerant and progressive. But are we really?
It is easy to accept views that are similar to yours. But can you accept a belief that is contradictory to what you think?
