A study has found that "church-going Americans" have grown "increasingly intolerant", well that's certainly what the Reuters headline yells at you. But what have they grown intolerant of?
Church-going Americans have grown increasingly intolerant in the past four years of politicians making compromises on such hot issues as abortion and gay rights, according to a survey released on Saturday.
At the same time, those polled said they were growing bolder about pushing their beliefs on others -- even at the risk of offending someone.[emphasis added]
Is it unreasonable for church-going Americans to be upset at constantly being played the fool in American politics? I'm a little intolerant of that, too.
