Intolerance vs. Tolerance
2 May 2019 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

This doc showcases a Eureka Springs, AR ordinance #2223 in 2015 which passed w/these words: "seeks to protect and safeguard the right and opportunity of all persons to be free from unfair discrimination based on real or perceived race, ethnicity, national origin, age, gender, gender identity, gender expression, familial status, marital status, socioeconomic background, religion, sexual orientation, disability and veteran status."

Within it we see a juxtaposition of three groups, "Gays for Jesus."; Christians tolerant of gays; Christians who say "Gays are bound for Hell." Interesting that I thought I recognized some of that latter group with the same biblical sin/hell street posters demonstrating in 2015 in a similar doc "The Most Dangerous Year" trying to instill an initiative #1552 (Washington state) to ban transgender rights as to how they self-identify themselves. Also using the same unfounded fear arguments. In countering, the tolerant Christians had this to say, "You can't force people into Heaven." "Everyone has a path to reach God. Just have a pure soul."

A separate issue is alluded to in these statements, Jesus says, "Go forth and make all nations my disciples." Baptize men everywhere in the name of ..." suggests one major reason that religions have historically been at odds - the actions of gaining ground/numbers on the competitors.
