"Tolerance is the last virtue of a depraved society. When you have an immoral society that has blatantly, proudly, violated all of the commandments of God, there is one last virtue they insist upon: tolerance for their immorality." -D. James Kennedy

As an atheist, I hope people can understand my uneasiness when a popular Evangelical broadcaster suggests tolerance is depraved. Atheists are always one of the first groups persecuted theocracies. This is why the separation of Church and State is so important.

I hate to make generalizations like this, but don't most Evangelicals (like Mr. Kennedy) support the current present, a man who has blatantly, proudly violated several of the 10 commandments? I can't even imagine how any of his supporters can convince themselves that they have a moral high ground from which to judge others. Clearly many of them do not.

According to the quote, tolerance isn't depraved, it's a virtue, the last virtue of a depraved society.

I don't think too many people supported Trump because they were under the impression he's perfect, he was just better than the alternative.

As an atheist, what gives you a moral high ground from which to judge others? There is no moral code of atheism, the only defining feature of it is your rejection of God and by extension, His rules, aka morality.

Furthermore, atheist governments have killed about 100 million people in the last century alone, many of whom were killed for their religion, so your concerns about the separation of church and state ring a little hollow to me.

Maze, would you agree that, by suggesting that tolerance is the last virtue of a society only identified as depraved, the quote is saying it tolerance is a very bad thing? Even an immoral thing?

I agree. Many of the people who supported Trump knew he was far from perfect. That's my point. Hilary is pro-choice and I understand why some people would never vote for her. She wasn't the only alternative though. I didn't vote for either Trump nor Hilary. So in my view, many of those who voted for Trump chose to overlook all of his obvious shortcoming.

I assume vast majority of the people who voted for Trump did so because they felt it was the right thing to do, that it was consistent with their religious values. Knowing the type of human being Trump is, and the fact these same folks rationalize their support him of, and also agree with someone who suggest tolerance is a bad thing.. to me that's frightening.

I never claimed to have a moral high ground. I simply claim though that those who support the president are no more moral than I. The suggestion in the quote is offensive to me.
