Tolerance for all
IT IS perfectly reasonable to take the transgender cause seriously, and to treat those who believe they are in the wrong body with consideration.

Shouldn’t this kindness and tolerance flow both ways? Isn’t that the point of tolerance, that, while we disagree, we try to get on?
A Christian teacher, who strove to reconcile his duties in the classroom with his conscience, has been suspended from the job he loves after a minor slip-up.
