Can someone be morally against something (ie: abortion or homosexuality), and still be, and be seen as being, tolerant?

Everyone says yes, but I see the opposite daily on SOH. As soon as an opinion is given they are attacked, even if they are tolerant of IT in others.

I think that is what being tolerant is. To be against something for whatever personal reason, while recognizing the rights of others to do it, and defending those rights even though you personally disapprove of it.

Absolutely. It's called having an opinion. Lol.

Every Christian I know tolerates same sex marriage but morally we are opposed to it.

Only if their belief doesn't lead to action against those who practice those things.

So, you disapprove of those who not only disapprove of slavery, but also seek to end it?

Disapproval doesn't have anything to do with it. It's just asking about intolerance. I don't think it's a bad thing to be intolerant of slavery.

I don't tolerate the genocide of innocent human lives.

It's possible, yes, but not in all cases.
If you believe someone is being harmed or killed by another person you shouldn't be expected to tolerate it.

Absolutely, I think homosexuality is gross, disgusting, and against human nature, but I think people who are gay deserve every right and privilege straight people get, their choices about their personal life shouldn't affect their rights

Yes if they accept that a majority rules.
