Love and Tolerance

In today's first reading, Paul tells the Romans that "love does no evil to the neighbor." This is easier said than done in a culture that is very confused about what love means. Here's my short homily on the topic.

Hint: love doesn't equal tolerance or approval.

Witness St. Paul holding the instrument of his execution. They didn't kill him because he was tolerant. They lopped his head off with a sword specifically because he was intolerant and disapproving of the world around him.
