This study investigates the tolerance belief systems of members of different denominational categories. After controls for education are imposed, it is found that there exists a Christian consensus on the circumstances in which intolerance may be justified. The characteristics of the audience (adults versus preadults) affect tolerance belief systems to a much greater extent than does the political content of a particular message.
