    Good Lord, almighty. Is this thread going to become another contentious, off-topic religious debate?

    Give it a frickin' rest... Or please take the interminable battle between the faiths to the appropriate religious forum.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    Among of Germans only ... are there now 2018 any clear differencies in this "tolerance" behavior between average Catholic Germans and average Lutherans Germans? Just asking that as in TA.... there is one Catholic German who easily "attacks" against protestants.

    In my opinion the true Germanic value has always been a love of freedom, rather than toleration. Respecting the freedom of others within reason is different from blindly tolerating that which is harmful to you, your loved ones or society as a whole. In my mind the word tolerance when invoked often involves asking someone to accept things which are harmful and infringe upon freedom while not being for the greater good of the society.

    To a certain extent yes but you also need to factor in the enforced Christianisation of Northern Europe and the post war guilt complex in Germany.
