    To me tolerance is a kind of acceptance, you might not like it but you need to accept that everyone has the right to believe and as long as they hurt nobody act however they please. Afterall I am sure someone objects to your lifestyle choices.

    But there are still places to disagree in the absence of violence law and education, for instance.

    I think Dodo said it all really. While tolerance involves compromise, so often that compromise is merely one sided. A host country which embraces and condones the cultural practices that are otherwise considered an atrocity is certainly indifferent, as is the family that snubs its nose at an entire culture it has come to dwell among. However, I also don't suppose it's simply a matter of 'when in Rome, do as the Romans do' either. I do think exposure, knowledge and teaching kids in schools effects a change in social attitudes - but this may take generations too. Italian/Australians from the 50's are very different from Italian/Australians today so I believe that starting life in another country takes time to adapt and the host country should make an effort to integrate diverse beliefs within the moral and legal bounds of the law. Other than that, I'm stuck for answers.

    Two negatives make a positive - it encourages tolerance.

    "I won't tolerate certain behaviors in myself: rape, murder, and eating nothing but cotton candy." -- Is this "ignorance... period"?
