Religious Tolerance

By Roberto Gonzalez – Ecuador

“Think for yourself and let others enjoy the privilege of doing so, too.”
― VoltaireTraité sur la tolérance, à l’occasion de la mort de Jean Calas

Religious tolerance is one the most important values that a society needs to achieve progress, but this value is fading away. People tend to generalize that all Muslims are terrorists when just few extremists are terrorists, like ISIS for example. This must change in order to achieve religious peace in the entire world.pope francis

Even in past times, intellectuals such as Voltaire, preached about the right that all people have to think freely. He said “I do not agree with what you say, but I’ll defend to death your right to say it.”  We are all humans. Wars should not exist. Why would you kill your same race? Peace and tolerance is needed. Acceptance of all beliefs is imperative in order to save the lives of millions
