What does tolerance really mean?

“From its beginning, the new continent seemed destined to be the home of religious tolerance. Those who claimed the right of individual choice for themselves finally had to grant it to others.”– Calvin Coolidge, May 3, 1925

“The frustrating thing is that those who are attacking religion claim they are doing it in the name of tolerance. Question: Isn’t the real truth that they are intolerant of religion?” - Ronald Reagan, August 23, 1984

So who really needs to be tolerant?  In the name of tolerance it appears our freedom of religion is being eradicated.
