"What fueled Dobson's preposterous broadside is the fact that the We Are Family Foundation has posted a 'tolerance pledge' on its web site that makes reference to respecting a person's 'sexual identity' (along with his or her beliefs, culture and race). This clearly doesn't sit well with the Reverend, who insists that such an inclusion 'crosses a moral line' – especially, it seems, in a music video that flaunts interspecies, puppet-cartoon miscegenation.'~~~BK, Alternet, 01-26-2004
Tolerance is a personal decision that comes from a belief that every person is a treasure. I believe that America's diversity is its strength. I also recognize that ignorance, insensitivity and bigotry can turn that diversity into a source of prejudice and discrimination.
To help keep diversity a wellspring of strength and make America a better place for all, I pledge to have respect for people whose abilities, beliefs, culture, race, sexual identity or other characteristics are different from my own.
