The previous post, which is copied from the Superior Threads Newsletter, has caused quite a stir on the Quilt Art group. Seems some folks view Bobs opinion as being both intolerant and unnecessary. Other listees pointed out that it was Bob's newsletter and company so he could do as he wished.
My comment was the ACLU inforces seperation of church and state, not merchant and state.
My solution was to offer a challenge, called Tolerance or Not. I truly dislike the word "tolerance". To tolerate is to merely put up with someone or something to get what you want, which may just be peace an quite, it doesn't have to be a material end.
