The Community Tolerance Test (CSTT) is designed to look at what the society can tolerant compared to what they do or do not prefer. The Harm-based Test is made to charge any act of indecency that is harmful or has any risk of harm towards an individual or society. This is why between the CSTT and the Harm Test, It is best to use the Harm Test when determining the obscene and the indecent acts in Canada as it looks more towards the safety of individuals and society in general....   [tags: Inaappropriate Content, Society, Tolerance]

While accepting the communitarian insight that moral thought is necessarily rooted in a social self with conceptions of the good, I argue that this does not undermine liberal tolerance. There is no thickly detailed way of life so embedded in our self-conceptions that liberal neutrality is blocked at the level of reflection....   [tags: Tolerance Liberal Community Essays]

Deism and Changes in Religious Tolerance in America - Deism and Changes in Religious Tolerance in America       Religious conscience in America has evolved considerably since the first settlers emigrated here from Europe. Primary settlements were established by Puritans and Pilgrims who believed "their errand into the wilderness [America] was above all else a religious errand, and all institutions - town meeting, school, church, family, law-must faithfully reflect that fact" (Gaustad 61). However, as colonies grew, dissenters emerged to challenge Puritan authority; indeed, many of them left the church to join untraditional religious sects such as "the Ranters, the Seekers, the Quakers, the Antinomians, and the Familists" (Westbrook 26)....   [tags: Deism Religious Tolerance]
