Our take: Recently, Dan Cathy, president of Chick-fil-A, made certain comments against same-sex marriage. In this article by Ken Coleman, the idea of tolerance is discussed for supporters of both sides of this very controversial issue:
I have no desire to join the debate over the definition of marriage. However, I ask questions for a living and I am quite comfortable asking the necessary questions to provoke a public conversation about civility in our public discourse.
I have observed and been engaged in the reaction on both sides of this story. I have come to the troubling conclusion that the uproar is not fueled by the debate on same sex marriage, rather the primary issue has become the tension between conviction and tolerance.
