Is there a badge for religious tolerance? We don't practice any particular religion but discuss...
as many as possible. We acknowledge the beliefs of any religion that we are exposed to and teach our children to respect that there are different religious beliefs. If possible, we will even observe religious holidays.
I never could understand why people actually fight over religion. I think we should just tolerate the beliefs of others because they have the right to their ideas. Live and let live is how life should work in the world. I love religious holidays, the more the better, as long as they are paid holidays.

If you don't believe me let someone who is a Zoroastrian, muslim, buddhist, homosexual, civil rights activist, seikh, mormon, jehovas witness...let anyone of these people run for the office of President of the United States.

Should we respect each other's religious holidays?Should we as a people from all races and religions respect each other's special holidays and religious celebrations and not criticize those who have a different culture and beliefs?

There has recently been a debate on a radio station about female genital mutilation, which I find abhorrent. Why is this practice acceptable on religious grounds, when it is ultimately child abuse?Why don't Jehovah's witnesses get charged with manslaughter when they allow someone to die for...
