(3) The Problem With Religious Tolerance (The Chronicle of Higher Education)

“When I teach introductory courses in religion, I find my students are also unwilling to offer critical appraisals of religious beliefs, and for the same reason. Like Warwick’s student union, they think refraining from criticism is essential to religious tolerance. After all, if you claim that a religious belief is wrong, aren’t you being intolerant? Better to accept religious relativism than run the risk of bigotry. That approach is fundamentally misguided. You can think a religious belief is wrong without being intolerant. Tolerance is not synonymous with “believing someone else is right.” It is a virtue that allows you to coexist with people whose way of life is different from your own without throwing a temper tantrum, or a punch.”


(4) How abortion is regulated around the world (Pew Research Center). Use the interactive map to compare and contrast national differences in abortion regulation. Hint: the United States is a leader in abortion. A leader. In abortion.
