Neither C nor L are tolerant or in the liberal
tradition. C wants to use the public schools to impose
his religion on everyone and L wishes to use the
public schools to impose a secular perspective on
everyone.

I would suggest that a third person, X, who supports
school choice and equal educational funding for every
child, is the most tolerant and the only one of the
three in the liberal tradition.

Cheers, Rick Duncan
