The Drums of Intolerance

A letter writer is upset with the petition to overturn the Kalamazoo "gay rights" ordinance.

Letters to the Editor

The letter is entitled "Banging the drums of intolerance".

The letter is ridiculous, of course. The "gay rights" movement is completely "intolerant" of anyone who disagrees with them. They are the ones who invade churches and harass supporters of traditional marriage.

But the letter raises an important question. Why is intolerance associated with drums? How about these alternate headlines:

Playing the piano of intolerance
Strumming the lute of intolerance
Tapping the triangle of intolerance
Piping the piccolo of intolerance

How about tolerance? Are there clashing cymbals of tolerance, or a tooting trombone of tolerance?

My church definitely needs to get some drums of intolerance.
