65. I feel your premise is a little off.
I do not see "liberal intolerance" of the devout or religious. There are a few here who might be rude. But, I feel what many are intolerant of is the devout or religious expecting all others to adhere to THEIR faith. I have no issue if you are religious, but if you use your religion as the basis to deny my or my loved ones equal rights, then I have an issue.

"Saying that religious organizations should not have the same privileges as non-profits or non-governmental organizations if they follow the same criteria is just ignorant. Of course they should not pay taxes!" Religious organizations SHOULD NOT have the same privileges as other non-profits IF they are promoting a POLITICAL agenda. To not tax them is allowing them to do something no other non-profit is allowed to do.

I feel the real hypocrisy is when others expect their religion trumps the rights of others.
