Yes, I am very tolerant of other religions and beliefs. In fact, I love hearing and learning about these things. As long as they treat others with love and kindness, a persona belief system is never an issue. What I do have a problem with is those who use their religious beliefs as a tool to discriminate and judge others.

I will not judge someone because of their religion . I always have and always will keep an open mind . Most times people know not a thing and will run their mouths . You should take the time out to listen and learn . It is hard to say there is a right and a wrong if you are a good person and living a good life , and have a form of believing . People always says you believe this you are wrong , you do this you go to hell . I am just so sick of it all . What is in your heart believe .

I personally would like to think that I am tolerant of other religions, but I am not delusional enough to think that I am free of all prejudices. I have noticed that sometimes even the most bigoted people claim to "be tolerant" when clearly they are not. I know that many religions teach being extremist, or intolerant of other religions as doctrine, although most do not teach it openly. They tend to teach in exclusive ways, such as, anyone who doesn't believe what we do is going to hell. This promotes intolerance.

This is a wonderfully honest assessment. I feel the exact same way. Thank you for having the courage to actually say it, because some proclaim themselves 100 percent "tolerant" when they are far from it.

I am an atheist, and everyday I get yelled at and preached to from people of all faiths all over MyLot. I am tolerant of all religion, but I do not understand why others aren't tolerant of mine. :(

I am tolerant of spiritual/theological beliefs different than my own. I am tolerant of activities (that do not harm others) different than my own. I am wildly intolerant of any kind of attempt by religions to effect the well-beling of people different from themselves. In other words,I am intolerant towards intolerance. To that extent,I am not tolerant towards several large world religions.

To me, there is only one religion ( religion of love ). Like in a garden,there are so many flowers with different colors. There are showing different aspects of the nature. Likewise, people are having their own ways of expression to God. Just respect them!

For me I would say yes for as long as they would not be too pushy on their belief on me. I have seen many that are just too pushy and would do just to recruit you in their religion. That I could not tolerate. I think it is the individual's choice if he/she wants to believe and not the religion itself.

To tell you the truth, I am not tolerant of all religions. Some people take their religion too far, some people of a certain religion, which I shall not name for discrimination reasons. I think that some people should just live life and not talk about religion all the time. I mean, I am Orthodox and I do not go preaching or even talking about my religion 24/7 to people of another religion. These people who preach and always talk about their religion are mostly those have nothing better to do. I would like it if the world wasnt separted by religion and some people could live a day without saying anything about religion. Life would be so much simplar.

I really don't care who or how anyone else worships as long as they don't push it off on me. As long as it works for them, and they can keep it to themselves I'm fine with it. But when they start pushing me about theirs, I'm gonna trot out mine.

There is only one true faith and I think it takes bits and pieces of all religions to form it. Because I have read the Bible some, I see that God / Higher Power, is not always tolerant and gets angry with our ways. So, no I am not always tolerant with every aspect that others believe. I don't knock their belief but would just as soon that they "go their way" and leave me and my ideas alone.

Hello there, I believe in being tolerant in all religions however I would definitely be defensive if people start to question and attack the validity of my religion. I believe that is the respect is not mutual then there is no need for tolerance. I am very acceptive of people's beliefs as long as it does not threaten the peace and harmony of my life and other people's life.

I respect all religions. I don't think there is a better religion or faith. And those that use their religion as a way to hurt other people do not get any respect from me.

I think I am although I still have my prejudices over other religions.I respect other religious beliefs but when those beliefs tend to hurt others, that is when I tend to not tolerate the religion.

I am tolerant of other religions and faiths. I have my own beliefs but I will not say another person is wrong or try to bring them down for how they choose to worship. I may not necessarily agree, but I wouldn't condemn them either. Everyone is trying to find their own way, and in a sense, everyone believes that their belief is the right one. I am open and aware of other religions but at the same time, I still stand firm in my own. It takes an extremely intelligent person to entertain a thought without accepting it. This is what separates individuals from different religions who hold a discussion on religion without getting into a heated debate from those who cannot.

i respect other people's beliefs.. and besides, i believe we are living under one God.. so it doesnt really matter whatsoever religion you are in.. as long as you acknowledge that there is someone with higher authority than you, that is, the Creator.. =)
