My latest Townhall column is called, 5 Virtues That Liberals Take To The Extreme. Here’s an excerpt from the column.
“If one oversteps the bounds of moderation, the greatest pleasures cease to please.” — Epictetus
“The world is full of people who will help you manufacture tornados in order to blow out a match.” — Shaun Hick
There are few things on the planet more necessary than water. In fact, roughly 60% of the human body is water. Yet, water isn’t ALWAYS a good thing as Noah could tell you. Virtues can be like this as well. In moderation, they’re good for you, but taken to extremes, they become destructive.
1) Tolerance: A little tolerance is a good thing, but too much tolerance makes people blind, dumb and stupid. It’s just fine for people and societies to set boundaries instead of giving the thumbs up to wallowing in a human pig pen. Yes, the Bible does say, “Judge not, that ye be not judged.” However, it doesn’t say there’s no difference between the Bible and the Koran, right and wrong, or good and evil. We’ve taken tolerance to such an extreme that many Americans think it’s better to abandon their morals, common sense, and history lessons rather than come across as “being judgmental.”
Once again, you can read it all here.
