There is no room for broadmindedness in the chemical laboratory. Drinking water is composed of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. The slighest deviation from that formula is impossible.
There is no room for broadmindedness in the mathematics classroom. Neither geometry, calculus, nor trigonometry allows any variation from exact accuracy. The solution of the problem is either right or wrong - no tolerance here.
There is no room for broadmindedness in the garage. The piston rings must fit the cylinder walls within one-thousandth of an inch. There cannot be any variation if the motor is to run smoothly.
How, then, should we expect broadmindedness to rule in the realm of morals and the science of religion? Perhaps we ought to listen to the "narrow-minded" preacher, true to the teachings of Jesus Christ!
