You can compromise between good, better, and best, and you can compromise between bad and worse and terrible. But you can't compromise between good and evil. And now people look at the other side as a completely different kind of animal and say, 'They are taking the country down the road to purgatory.' It's complete intolerance.

Intolerance has been the curse of our country.

Whereas probably the most fundamental and important thing to me has been defending my right to tell the truth about how I feel.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
