gay-heartTolerance is not the same thing as hospitality. Tolerance does not necessarily open its arm in radical welcome to the other, to the stranger, to the ones not like us; rather, tolerance *endures* the other. Tolerance does not open itself to the story of others’ lives or allow its own vulnerability or permit its heart to be touched by the other. Tolerance is not inquisitive or understanding. Tolerance is merely existence.
