Editors’ note: Intolerance is ignorance – there is no intellect being used, so a person reacts from fixed
attitudes and conditioning. In society, where there is a majority and a minority grouping people become intolerant
from ignorance of each other. When religious groups vie with each other there is no third force operating. The
advice of Jesus to turn the other cheek involves putting up with what people are doing, trying to understand their
motives. You cannot change other people, you can only change yourself, and the way out of intolerance is to
externally consider others.
