Well, well, well. We are called upon to be tolerant of many opinions and practices we may not agree with but treat with a spirit of patience and forbearance.
Tolerant: to bear or support; to suffer to be done without prohibition or hindrance; to allow; to permit; to treat in a spirit of patience and forbearance; not to judge or condemn with bigotry.
For those who are offended by a prayer in public, I ask: Where is your spirit of patience and forbearance?
