In a short rant, Dr. Phil Fernandes confronts the so-called “new tolerance” – known in other circles as political correctness or social justice. According to Dr. Fernandes, this new tolerance is, in fact, not tolerant at all.

This means that the beliefs of Christians are often the target of those who hold these beliefs. Only one way to heaven? Intolerant! The Bible says to follow the laws? Hateful! Respect law enforcement? Racist!

If the past is eternal, why are we still here?
