SORT BY Relevancy
The saying goes, our differences is what makes this country great. Many can argue that our differences is what's slowing down progress in this country. Have we grown as a nation when it comes to accepting others as they are, working together for a better society. Or are we stuck? Demanding things of others to make us feel good.
This and more on Sunday's show.
Self-esteem, tolerance, good values – these are gifts that will last children a lifetime and help them become successful adults. You can’t be a success in life if you can’t get along with other people — at home, at school, and at play. The values that young adults learn today will stay with them for the rest of their lives and help them become the best adults they can be.
Dr. Milton Boniuk created The Boniuk Foundation to promote compassion, tolerance, and respect. He and his wife Laurie funded The Boniuk Institute for the Study and Advancement of Religious Tolerance at Rice University, with the mission of promoting research, education, outreach, and better parenting to foster religious tolerance.
Join Amy Newmark, the publisher and editor-in-chief for Chicken Soup and me on Tuesday, June 23, 10-11 A.M. CT US as we discuss their partnership with The Boniuk Foundation, and their use of the power of storytelling to inspire and teach kids how to be role models — exhibiting qualities of tolerance, acceptance and self-esteem, and making good decisions.
In light of the Supreme Court decision legalizing same sex marriage, host Annie Meadows discusses with Pastor Mike Welte the difference between tolerance and compromising our beliefs
Note: This is a prerecorded show. As such the call in number is not active for this episode.
We will be discussing how many people only know one meaning of the word Tolerance. We simply choose to believe that it is all about 'putting up with someone'. Today we will be exploring the real meaning of learning how to put Tolerance in a spiritual mindset of application when it comes to operating in love with one another. When we focus on how to practice Tolerance on a spiritual level, we can stop believing the enemy's plot of having us to continue to say that we need to 'leave a person where they at' and call that Tolerance. Tolerance has more to do with operating in love than we allow ourselves to believe, and it is necessary in our understanding of each other, and highly applicable when we want to learn how to operate in love.
Matthew 7:1 (MSG)
A Simple Guide for Behavior
7 1-5 “Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults— unless, of course, you want the same treatment. That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging. It’s easy to see a smudge on your neighbor’s face and be oblivious to the ugly sneer on your own. Do you have the nerve to say, ‘Let me wash your face for you,’ when your own face is distorted by contempt? It’s this whole traveling road-show mentality all over again, playing a holier-than-thou part instead of just living your part. Wipe that ugly sneer off your own face, and you might be fit to offer a washcloth to your neighbor.
It seems to happen all the time. Police are called to a school to deal with students acting out.
Some snapshots from around the country this year: In October, in Chesterfield, South Carolina, police are called because of a fight. Nine students are arrested. In May, sheriff's deputies use pepper spray to break up a fight at a Naples, Florida, high school. Three students are arrested and 21 students need medical care. In March, New York Police Department safety agents ask a student to remove safety pins holding his glasses together. When the student refuses, the officers reportedly tackle and arrest him. What's going on in America's schools that necessitate seemingly so much police involvement? Could crime in our schools really be so rampant? During a week when the country repeatedly watched cell phone video of a student resource officer violently manhandling a South Carolina high school student, many are asking: What exactly is a school cop's job and does their presence benefit teachers, administrators and students?
It is very clear that the Liberals want everyone to be tolerant and to have diversity, but there is a problem with all of that.
It seem that the Liberals like Obama would liek everone to hav etolerances and diversity to others, but the problem is that those that seek these things are the lairs, for they have no tolerance and divesty for others as well. Wer saw this by Obama opening up his mouth as saying that what happen on chaple hill as a hate crime.
We were wrong. Data from two decades of these get-tough policies show they have failed to improve school safety. They have emphasized punishment, rather than developing the positive behaviors students need in school and in life.
The Zero-Tolerance rules adopted by many schools across the country has come under fire in recent months after a series of well-publicized incidents involving the suspension and/or expulsion of otherwise good students for seemingly innocent actions. The infractions triggering the rule varied from a schoolboy's pointing his finger at a fellow student like a gun and pretending to shoot him to a young girl's mother packing a small knife in her lunchbox so that she could cut an apple, to a young man who is accused of flashing a presumed gang hand signal in a photograph taken outside of school hours. All of these young people were suspended or expelled without the benefit of investigation or allowing the students any chance of self-defence. The rule and its draconian punishments is opposed by many educators and parents alike. Recent reports by such organizations as the APA have called into question the efficacy of zero-tolerance. They cite no net improvement in safety or student behavior as a result of aero-tolerance. Join Ken and Beth as they discuss this contentious issue. Ken is against and Beth is for. It looks like a showdown ladies and gentlemen. You won't want to miss it! 9:30PM PDT Thursday 3/13/2014, Beware the Ides-2 of March if you don't show up!!
