A friend sends this quote from Father Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange , O.P.:

The Church is intolerant in principle because she believes; she is tolerant in practice because she loves. The enemies of the Church are tolerant in principle because they do not believe; they are intolerant in practice because they do not love.

The terms could be reversed, at least for the Church: She is also tolerant in principle because she believes and intolerant in practice because she loves.
