A Tolerance for Everything Opposed to God

“Some would call it tolerance, I said. “Yes.”, he replied, “the same tolerance that overtook ancient Israel … a tolerance for everything opposed to God, a growing tolerance for immorality and a growing intolerance for the pure – a tolerance that mocked, marginalized and condemned those who remained faithful to the values now being discarded. Innocence was ridiculed and virtue was vilified. Children were taught of sexual immorality in public schools while the Word of God was banned. It was a tolerance that put the profane on public display and removed Nativity scenes from public sight … contraband, as if somehow they had become a threat-a strangely intolerant tolerance.” “But still”, I countered, “how does all that compare to what happened in ancient Israel? America doesn’t offer its children on altars of sacrifice?” “Does it not?”, he said. “Ten years after removing prayer and Scripture from its public schools, the nation legalized the killing of its unborn.””

Schoolmates, Friends & Siblings

“I was born in Milano which is in the north of Italy and is the capital of industry in Italy and the fashion industry worldwide. I am an only child. I didn’t have to fight with any siblings of any sort. Actually I missed that very much. I would have liked to have someone to play with and to interact with. So for that reason, I was very much interested in having this tight contact with my schoolmates and the like. I actually even dreamed to go to a boarding school because at least I would be with my friends, which is kind of strange because nobody wants to go to boarding school. I wanted to go to boarding school.”
