"Yes I am. I am also a Christian, a Muslim, a Buddhist and a Jew."

"Yes I am. I am also a Christian, a Muslim, a Buddhist and a Jew." - Mahatma Gandhi There is a virtue that some may only vaguely remember, but appear clearer to others: tolerance. It is based on understanding. The behavior of one person does not always reflect on the behavior of another. Tolerance is a virtue. Just as bad people can be found anywhere in our world, good people can be found within every country, every nationality, every religion - everywhere. Judge people by their natures, not by your bias, their religious leanings, their political leanings, their intelligence, their gender, their sexual orientation or anything else, and you may then truly find goodness existing within many. Learn the value of tolerance, for only then may anyone hope to bring peace. "There is no such thing as religion over-riding morality. Man, for instance, cannot be untruthful, cruel or incontinent and claim to have God on his side." - Mahatma Gandhi
