When this is the way one answers a simple question, I tend to believe there's 
no genuine interest in dialog.  I am therefore left to wonder who really is the 
intolerant one.  One cannot claim to be tolerant while demonstrating 
intolerance any more than one can claim to be educated without every having 
read a book.

It's amazing to me the ridicule heaped upon the man for asking a question. 
Would it have been too difficult to simply answer the question, as the first 
response did?  No, we have to attack the man for having beliefs that are 
different from our own.  Because we're so enlightened?  Or because we are even 
more ignorant than we suppose he is?
