If the simple fact that someone believes she has the truth automatically means she’s arrogant and intolerant, then everyone is arrogant and intolerant. All of us hold the views we do because we think we’re right! (Why else would we adopt them?) But it’s absurd to say everyone is arrogant. Conviction—holding our views because we think we’re right—is not equivalent to arrogance and intolerance.
-David K. Clark, “Religious Pluralism and Christian Exclusivism” in To Everyone An Answer, p. 297
