It's tolerance for all – except for Christians

THERE are none so intolerant as those who shout loudest about toleration.

The person who claims to have been discriminated against in the Ashers Bakery case received a full refund. He had opportunity to take his business elsewhere.

Yet they chose to persecute a Christian company because it refused to produce a product which conflicted with its beliefs.

Ashers has made it clear that it has declined orders which contained pornographic images and offensive language.

Could it be that the person who placed this order specifically targeted Ashers because of the religious convictions of the owners?

It seems there is tolerance for all – except those with Christian beliefs.
