That’s not to say that I don’t agree with his sentiment, because I do – … but going by the Science v. Religion debates online, the intolerance has grown against people professing religious beliefs, going beyond the days of Carl Sagan where he was just going after quackery of all kinds. “Look at those intolerant people!” “Oh yes, not like us. We’re tolerant! Now when will those intolerant people fall in line with us?”
sigh Oh well. Still a nice message though overall.
