  2. actually, i would like to go through other religions as well in other polls. the idea is to isolate several branches in different religions that are considered intolerant and then run a separate poll comparing those.

    piling various Christian branches under Christian does not make sense since they are quite different from each other as far as i know.

    When you mean intolerant do you mean...
    convert or die intolerance
    you can't live in this country unless you join us intolerance
    kill the infidel type intolerance
    preachers who preach killing and suicide bombing intolerance
    Or intolerance in which the preacher says that unless that person changes their ways they are not pleasing God.
    you can't have extra marital sex and be in a church intolerance
    you can't are supposed to drink, smoke or take stimulants intolerance
    you can't come to church topless intolerance
    you shouldn't come here drunk intolerance

    there are different degrees of intolerance

    what type of intolerance are you looking for.. and how would you grade it?
     
  4. This is impossible to know without a comprehensive poll and survey. One Catholic church can be very strict and intolerant while another can be open and accepting.
     
  5. ""convert or die intolerance
    you can't live in this country unless you join us intolerance
    kill the infidel type intolerance intolerance
    preachers who preach killing and suicide bombing intolerance""

    the 4 examples above are relevant because they force other people to change their ways.


    "Or intolerance in which the preacher says that unless that person changes their ways they are not pleasing God." - clearly not the same type of intensity.

    the poll is asking for the most intolerant so as long as one can grade the level of intolerance he should be able to chose one answer.
