Back in the early 1960s, Americans had to learn a new level of tolerance. People of color would no longer take a back seat to anyone. In the late 1960s and '70s, we again had to learn tolerance as young folks let their hair grow and voiced opinions on national and international policy. We called them hippies. Now we are back in school again. Gay people are demanding their rights. So what are we to do? We could quit the Boy Scouts, the Lions Club, The Optimists Club, The Rotary Club, etc. No more public pools, libraries, churches, public schools and so on. But what good would come of all that?
