“Every Star has its own Nature, which is 'Right' for it. We are not to be missionaries, with ideal standards of dress and morals, and such hard-ideas. We are to do what we will, and leave others to do what they will. We are infinitely tolerant, save of intolerance. It is not good, however, to try to prevent Christians from meddling, save by the one cure: 'The Christians to the Lions'.”
— Aleister Crowley, ii57New Comment on Chapter II.57 in Liber AL vel Legis, Ch I, 3


“Further, Tolerance isn’t about accepting bad behavior; it is about celebrating our sovereign individuality. Tolerance doesn’t mean we avoid conflict at all costs, it means we fight when necessary with respect and good faith. And Tolerance certainly doesn’t mean abandoning our principles, for they are outlined within our ceremonies of initiation, and to them we are all obligated and oath-bound. They compose the firm pole that supports our inclusive tent wherein all true brothers and sisters may dwell in Joy and Freedom.”
— John Bowie, The Revival of Tolerance


“The predictable fiasco that follows this realization is that defenders of the faith, machiavellian or otherwise, in a pique of persecution complex, then preemptively, or at least with more melodrama and passive-aggressive forum shopping, breathlessly turn about and accuse those intolerant of intolerance of being intolerant instead, and thus the whole thing devolves into a recedingly bizarre and sinister farce from which the only escapes are taking names and tossing people to the lions.”
—John Griogair Bell, Paradigms


“However great and zealous the fanatical efforts, during those early centuries, to obliterate every trace of the mental and intellectual labour of the Pagans, it was a failure; but the same spirit of the dark demon of bigotry and intolerance has perverted systematically and ever since, every bright page written in the pre-Christian periods.”
—Helena Petrovna Blavatsky's Introduction to The Secret Doctrine


“English society is impregnated from top to bottom with this spirit. The supreme satisfaction is to be able to despise one's neighbour and this fact goes far to account for religious intolerance. It is evidently consoling to reflect that the people next door are headed for hell.”
—Aleister Crowley, Chapter 3 of Confessions


“Again, we know that ecstasy, impinging upon unbalanced minds, inflames the idolised idea, and produces fanatical faith fierce even to frenzy, with intolerance and insanely disordered energy which is yet so powerful as to effect the destinies of empires.”
—Aleister Crowley, Liber Samekh Theurgia Goetia Summa (Congressus Cum Daemone) Sub Figurâ DCCC
