Intolerant People

This morning I came across an article in Alternet--one of my favorite news sites.  It is a brief description of what the author calls "8 Habits of Intolerant People".  Without meaning to do so, the author has made the connection between narcissism, religion, and intolerance.  The author is a psychiatrist and author.  When describing the intolerant people he has met in his practice, he points out that they are fanatical know it alls--just exactly the sort of description that I have been advocating for years with regard to religious people.

Although not exactly about religious people, the article is good reading for those who want to learn or remind themselves about the sorts of traits to look for when deciding which religious people to avoid for self-protection.  I recommend it.
