"Tolerance for me but not for thee."

Ever notice how the most intolerant tend to be those who cry "free-speech" only when it comes to their point of view?

More than 25,000 evangelical Christian youth landed Friday in San Francisco for a two-day rally at AT&T Park against "the virtue terrorism" of popular culture, and they were greeted by an official city condemnation and a clutch of protesters who said their event amounted to a "fascist mega-pep rally."

I find it ironic that SF's Board of Supervisors produced an official document denouncing a particular group for exercising their right to peaceful assembly and free speech.

A city that supposedly prides itself for embracing diversity reverts to judgmental (and childish) name-calling such as "they're loud, they're obnoxious, they're disgusting."

In "America's most tolerant and progressive city" about the ONLY thing that draws a governmental condemnation and is categorized as "provocation" is 25,000 youths celebrating their free observance of religious beliefs, and finding solutions to "the spread of sexually transmitted disease, teen pregnancy, drug abuse and suicide..."

I guess it's "tolerance only for me and not for thee."
