Tolerance is an even greater obligation of listeners than it is
of speakers. "Communication skills" cut both ways: if one takes
offense or misinterprests a simple, honest, expression of opinion
like "the idea of God is nonsense", then it is the listener whose
ability to communicate is broken, not the speaker.
