Distinction between persons and ideas…

Exclusivism and a proper form of intellectual intolerance are logically inescapable when it comes to truth-claims. Many who speak of tolerance in religious matters fail to recognize that a person can be personally and socially tolerant while simultaneously being (appropriately) intellectually intolerant. The latter stance makes the necessary distinction between persons and ideas or arguments. In fact, exclusivism is unavoidable in matters of religious truth for even the religious pluralist affirms an exclusivist belief that all religions are true.
