Quotable: JFK on tolerance

“Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one’s own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.”

–John F. Kennedy

(This, in a nutshell, is why you’ll never hear me calling for anyone’s death, not even that of a complete and utter wanker. But it’s also why you WILL hear me condemning wankers for doing just that and worse.)
