Tolerance

One of my favorite quotes by Elder Packer was what he said about tolerance during a devotional he gave up at Weber State Institute in 2009.

I'm paraphrasing from his talk. I don't have a written copy but the idea was simple and I remember it well. 

He said: Be careful of the word tolerance, there are those who will expect it, but will not offer it in return.

  1. Elder Bednar, in an interview on LDS Radio, called it "The Tyranny of Tolerance". I believe it was used in talking about the Prop. 8 situation in California. The other side demands tolerance of their beliefs while refusing to show tolerance of ours.
