San Francisco - Most Tolerant City?

I highly recommend reading this article regarding San Francisco's recent reaction to a Christian teenage gathering. I find it amazing that the city can toot it's own horn regarding being one of the most tolerant cities in America, but condemn these teenagers that came to the city to peacefully demonstrate their stand for honesty and honor.

This is Webster's definition of tolerance

tol·er·ance : sympathy or indulgence for beliefs or practices differing from or conflicting with one's own b : the act of allowing something :

Anyone can see that a tolerant city would not be treating these young men and women the way these teens were treated just because their beliefs are different. In fact, a "tolerant" city would have embraced them with open arms. How can it be tolerance if only those who agree with you are tolerated.

There will be another group of young Christians meeting peacefully this month in San Francisco. Please pray for their safety and that the blinders will be taken off those living in this city and their hearts will be open to God's love.
