Difference Between Tolerance and Inquisition

I take issue with the claim "christian beliefs" - Dan Cathy may be a Christian, but what a christian happens to believe doesn't automatically make the belief "christian." 

It's his take on things; the way he reads the Bible, or what his church has taught him, but not automatically what all christians should believe. 

Folks like Dan Cathy forget just how diverse christianity is; he's entitled to his views, but it sure would be nice for him to say, "This is how I read the Bible" rather than saying, "This is what the Bible says" - huge difference, and has often been the difference between tolerance and inquisition.
