This is a major problem currently, because it creates a culture of intolerance and frequently of mocking. It goes even farther, to a point that some people have even the nerve to tell others not to talk about this and that. As if anyone had such a right.
But, again, it’s all part of the culture inspired and developed by this right/left criticism. The media being called “enemy of the people” or “bad people,” etc., is certainly a poisonous fuel that sparks all kinds of fires. And, if the President can say it, just imagine how many people feel entitled to tell others what they can/cannot say, and, if they espouse a certain ideology they can be called “enemies of the people.” It’s nothing but freedom under fire!
Transposing such venomous arrogance to a religious/church environment may cause tremendously negative consequences. After all, wasn’t this spirit the that killed all the reformation martyrs and thousands of believers throughout the ages? As you said, “the spirit of intolerance.” It needs to be called by its name.
