WATCH: Justin Trudeau says, tolerance is not enough, we want acceptance and approval.

Once upon a time, there was a lot of talk about tolerance. That was the buzz word. But have you noticed that we don’t hear it so much these days? There’s a reason for that. It’s because, as R.C. Sproul Jr. rightly said, “tolerance was never the goal, approval is. We who give the former…


Once upon a time, there was a lot of talk about tolerance. That was the buzz word. But have you noticed that we don’t hear it so much these days? There’s a reason for that. It’s because, as R.C.

Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau confirmed that recently during a speech delivered in Yankee Stadium for 31,000 New York University graduates and guests.

“I think we can aim a little higher than mere tolerance,” Trudeau said. “Think about it: Saying ‘I tolerate you’ actually means something like, ‘Ok, I grudgingly admit that you have a right to exist, just don’t get in my face about it, and oh, don’t date my sister.’”

“There’s not a religion in the world that asks you to ‘tolerate thy neighbour,’” Trudeau continued. “So let’s try for something a little more like acceptance, respect, friendship, and yes, even love… because despite our differences, we are all the same.”
