"Toleration" means that you must accept all morals and spiritual viewpoints as equally valid. To actually believe that you are connected with the ultimate God who is there is the height of arrogance and pride. Apply this kind of thinking to the fiery furnace account in Daniel 3.

Listen and learn from Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
