    Thank you for your insightful comment. The “truth is relevant” canard is the harbinger of much of the confusion in today’s open society. It is the progenitor of the Diversity, Tolerance, Rainbow, and other secular humanist ideologies and has crept insidiously into Orthodox Jewish belief as well. Much of the confusion in the “leftist” MO leadership can be traced to desire to reconcile the orthodoxies of Torah Judaism and the heterodoxy of “modern” relativistic belief.

    A quote from Bishop Fulton Sheen:
    “America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance – it is not. It is suffering from tolerance. Tolerance of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos. Our country is not nearly so overrun with the bigoted as it is overrun with the broadminded…

    Tolerance is an attitude of reasoned patience toward evil … a forbearance that restrains us from showing anger or inflicting punishment. Tolerance applies only to persons … never to truth. Tolerance applies to the erring, intolerance to the error…

    Tolerance does not apply to truth or principles. About these things we must be intolerant, and for this kind of intolerance, so much needed to rouse us from sentimental gush, I make a plea. Intolerance of this kind is the foundation of all stability.”

    “I salute him for his honesty in not pretending that he agrees with mine”

    I don’t see anything to salute him for on this count. Your religious views are the truth. There is nothing to commend another ones not pretending that he agrees with the truth.
