Being uncompromising and being intolerant are not the same. They carry very different connotations on the frontlines. The former implies a refusal to tolerate anything that takes or keeps us away from the path and the latter means to not be understanding of difference. As a people, homosexuals are known better than any other for our tolerance of others and their ways (something many with clear hindsight now cogently argue has been a leading source of our demise as a world power). But our tolerance of difference never insinuated or directly meant our voluntary embracing of it.
