Aren’t Christians and their views intolerant?

The common claim made today is that Christians are intolerant for not accepting other people’s views of salvation. The question for those making this claim is this:  “they are not accepting the Christian view and by their own view of tolerance, are being intolerant. The statement is self-refuting and hypocritical. 
Intolerance has been redefined to mean “not accepting other people’s views.  A traditional and non-refuting definition of tolerance is to put up with something that one disagrees with. If I accept it, I something means I have to put up with something I disagree with.   Do you accept the Christian view that Jesus is the only way to heaven?”  If not, Im no longer tolerating it, because to tolerate something means I have to put up with something I disagree with.
