SF’s Phony Claim of Tolerance

San Francisco likes to think of itself as the most progressive and tolerant of cities. Oh, but what self-delusion exists in the minds of liberals and leftists. The occasion was the anticipated gathering of 25,000 Christian youth dedicated to countering the corrosive cultural influences endemic in American life. The prospect of Christians proclaiming Christian values seems to have unsettled San Francisco fathers and provoked them to issue a proclamation in opposition to the gathering:

City leaders readied for the battle earlier this week, when the Board of Supervisors passed a resolution condemning the "act of provocation" by an "anti-gay," "anti-choice" organization that aimed to "negatively influence the politics of America's most tolerant and progressive city."
Wouldn’t you think that “America’s most tolerant and progressive city” could just shrug off the “evil message” of a bunch of Christians? I wonder; is it the famous San Francisco fog that has corroded the brains of so many of its residents? How else can you explain the predominant perpetual adolescent views held by San Francisco, Marin County, Berkeley and Santa Cruz residents?
