Religion of Peace.

Except not.
An Indian literary festival canceled a video conference with author Salman Rushdie days after he called off a personal appearance due to protests and threats.

Festival organizers decided to cancel the video address to avoid violence by Muslim activists gathered at the Jaipur Literary Festival, an organizer, Sanjoy Roy, said.

"We have been pushed to the wall. ... Earlier today, a number of organizations came to us and threatened violence," Roy said.
"Tolerance" seems to mean bowing down every time someone threatens you because you offend their imaginary friend in the sky.  Me?  I'm intolerant, which means when you threaten me with violence I'll shoot you in the face.
