Tolerance of Intolerance?

* This is a question posed to the Christians among us *

If you believe that there is only one way to salvation, isn't it highly disingenuous to accuse others of being intolerant when they don't care to listen to you?

Doesn't that make as much sense as the KKK accusing you of bigotry because you don't want them marching in the streets of your neighborhood?

This is NOT to say that Exclusivist (One and Only One Way) Christians are violent or hateful like the Klan. But, insofar as they promote evangelizing the world and hold that there is no other way to be 'saved', then their goal is really the eradication of every differing point of view. It's a sort of intellectual - even a spiritual - violence.

Why am I obligated to listen to you?
