12:34 am - Tolerance to other religions
Lately I had problems trying to convince one of those new-age "peace for all", "everyone is in his own right for anything", "each one's world point of view is fine", ...

As usual, he had the opinion: "You must tolerate any religion, as catholics, muslims, krisnas., because there aren't points of view better than other".

I wanted to convince him on that, that some "ways of thinking" are 'better' than other. In the sense of hapiness, of easiest living, etc. And sure I was against any of those "god-deciding"/"god-is-right"/"god-has-power" religions.

Lately, the 'revolutioning' parties in my country (Communists, ecologists, ...) seem to tolerate -anything-, and promote toleration for anything without judgment.

Maybe any of you have a good solid fundamental discourse on that?

Thanks!

In this case, I may have succeed with the concerned individual in the same way you expect to - he (probably) knows my point of view.

I added "probably", as although he warmly kept the discussion on at night, on the next day he seemed to have forgotten everything.

So I wouldn't claim a great success ;)

That will happen. For them it’s like trying to remember what a triangle looks like, without knowing what a straight line looks like.
