Tolerance watch

As I mentioned in a post a couple of weeks ago, I was at the Chautauqua Institution and attended a lecture by biologist Ken Miller, and a discussion on Jewish psychology held by the local Chabad Lubavitcher. Miller, a high-profile defender of evolution, happens to be Catholic.

I guess by the standards some people are now applying to Sarah Palin, I should have stormed out of those events. After all, I'm not a Catholic or a Hasidic Jew, so what was I doing there? By the way, I'm not a spiritualist either; I guess I should have wrestled one of the Lily Dale cold readers to the ground.
