Ah, yes — tolerance! And civility! These are two of the traits liberals professs to admire most. They fancy themselves to be the living embodiment of both.
Need evidence? Easy. They’ll point you to the topic of marriage, which has long been a shibboleth. Do you agree that people of the same sex who cohabit should be permitted to call their arrangement marriage? If you don’t, the left has a four-letter word for what you can do to yourself. And they’ll remind you, with a haughty smirk, that marriage between two men or two women has the imprimatur of the highest court in the land. (Naturally, if the 5-4 decision, which hinged on the opinion of the court’s “swing” Justice, Anthony Kennedy, had gone the other way, they would have a four-letter word for what SCOTUS can do itself, too.)
As part of their end zone dance over the court’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, the gay community and its supporters staged “pride” marches all over the nation Saturday, the day after the big announcement. Father Jonathan Morris, a Catholic priest and vocal opponent of gay unions, happened to be passing by the parade down Broadway in New York City, when a couple of marchers recognized him and gave him a “warm welcome.” That’s 98.6º warm — the temperature of human saliva.
Walking down Broadway and 22nd St just now, I ran into gay marriage parade. Two men walked by and spat on me. Oh well… I deserve worse.

A short time later, he demonstrated true tolerance, tweeting:
The two men who spat on me are probably very good man caught up in excitement and past resentment. Most in that parade would not do that. — Fr. Jonathan Morris (@fatherjonathan) June 28, 2015
