I am writing this letter in response based on an opinion of a pro-family stance in the battle for equality in our great nation. While I appreciate and respect a dedication to traditional values that most of America has lost (Some traditions should be lost when their necessity is outgrown, others could stand to see a comeback). Where I have trouble, is how someone could use the word tolerance in a negative connotation. Need I remind those folks that the United States of America was built on such a principle? With so many different groups of people who made our nation great, tolerance was what kept us from spiraling into madness and lawlessness.
