Ban religeous freedom at your peril.

in response to reader comment: The Medieval Mentality of this Devout Muslim

I was disappointed with your condescending tone and hectoring language. Devout people exist who preclude the possibility that any other religion is correct. We call them Roman Catholics, Hasidic Jews, Mormons & etc..There can be mutual respect between people of faith. However for wishy washy in betweeners there is a lack of credulity. Tolerance is not diluting or mixing your beliefs. It is understanding that other people have arrived at their beliefs under different social constraints, that they at least have the light to know there is one God.
