Tolerate It -- Or Else

The Anchoress is right in her definition of what "tolerance" means nowadays. She's discussing the gay "marriage" issue, but it applies to other issues as well such as abortion, support for Obama, and so forth:
"This is not about being 'right' or 'wrong' on an issue. This is about menacing and bullying people into conforming or paying the price. It’s about the bastardization of the word 'tolerance' in our society, to the point where the word no longer means 'live and let live' or 'let people be who they are'; the word has become distorted in a very unhealthy way."
It's gotten to the point where you no longer feel free to express your opinion, especially if you're a conservative among liberals. They now assume that everyone feels the same way they do on the issues; and woe betide to you if you don't. It's not easy continuing to stand up for your principles amid constant indoctrination.
