Religious Tolerance
I am tolerant, you are permissive, I have reasonable scruples, and you are a conservative. (Author
Unknown)
Does this sound like the thoughts of most of us? Many people think that they have to understand and
accept the religious beliefs of others in order to get along with them. Respecting someone's choice to

Students claim that their beliefs are openly mocked in college classrooms around the country and

system discussed in class." When religious leaders insist that public schools perform plays, such as

should be taught of other religions and to learn the history of other religions, but not be required to
act out specifics from a particular religion. We may wish that state schools embraced our religious

the suppression of it. The state system must use its non–denominational status to educate children in
all the major faiths, but that is where it must stop.

And he also said: Whoever has killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims shall not smell the
fragrance of Paradise, though its fragrance is found for a span of forty years.

said: There is a reward for kindness to every living animal or human.
e. We can witness that the Prophet, peace be upon him, saw a funeral procession pass by. He stood

abuse Allah out of ignorance. Thus have We made fair seeming to every people their deeds; then to
their Lord shall be their return, so He will inform them of what they
