Tolerance – The Last Virtue of a Depraved Society

Hutton Gibson made a very insightful statement recently on The Political Cesspool, and it deserves a place here on Confederate Colonel.

“Tolerance is the last virtue of a depraved society. When an immoral society has blatantly and proudly violated all the commandments, it insists upon one last virtue, tolerance for its immorality. It will not tolerate condemnation of its perversions. It creates a whole new world in which only the intolerant critic of intolerable evil is evil.”
Hutton Gibson

Hutton Gibson is the father of actor Mel Gibson.

This brings to mind another similar quote from another man:

“It is not the evil itself which is horrifying about our times — it is the way we not only tolerate evil, but have made a cult of positively worshipping weakness, depravity, rottenness and evil itself.”
George Lincoln Rockwell

This libertine society of modern-day American in which we dwell has much to answer for. It is our duty to be intolerant of evil and wickedness. The God of The Bible is completely intolerant of sin. He recognizes only one way to cleanse ourselves of sin – that is to come to repentance (turning away from sin) and accepting the gift of salvation by grace through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Christianity is the foundation of our Southern culture. That is something we must never forget.

    tolerance is hate. God defined love as rebuking your neighbor for his sin and hate as suffering (or tolerating ) him in his sin. neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour: I am the LORD.
    Lev 19:17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.
    Lev 19:18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

  2. When I first read Mr. Gibson’s statement, I tried to just pull out one sentence to sum it up, but I couldn’t – it must be taken as a whole because every word of it has importance. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, sir.

    Something tells me none of you are Jewish, yet you refer to and follow Old Testament scripture. Please, tell us ignorant (non-practicing, agnostic) students of the Bible, why and how do you call yourselves Christian when you blatantly ignore the teachings of the human you call the Christ?

    Well this was informative: “George Lincoln Rockwell was the founder of the American Nazi Party. Rockwell was a major figure in the neo-Nazi movement in the United States, and his beliefs and writings have continued to be influential among white nationalists and neo-Nazis.”

    Good luck living in the present and future. If I could gift you a time machine to remove yourself from the current population, I would gladly be generous. (Though I would hope I could get a cctv feed recording the horror you faced going into the past and finding out that neo-Nazi beliefs and their kin were both typical and a source of unending violence. A battle axe to the head might change your perspective.)

  5. This troll reply was published for one reason only – to demonstrate the collectivist tactic of attacking the messenger and not the message. Yes, that was written by George Lincoln Rockwell. He wrote it, so the words are properly attributed to him. It may come as a shock, but the fact that he was the founder of the American Nazi Party does not preclude him from speaking the truth at times. The words he spoke in this quote are true, regardless of his place in history.

  6. This reply of “sps” was approved to help shed some light on what kind of person this is. Anyone who refers to “the human you call the Christ” is someone who has no credibility.

    Psalm 14:1 sums it up pretty well: “The fool hath said in his heart There is no God.” You, sps, are a fool. That was the last reply of yours that will be permitted to foul this blog.
