Why learn about other religions?

Pastor France A. Davis (Calvary Baptist Church)

“It’s important to learn about other religions so we can learn to appreciate differences and help people who do things different than us, to celebrate those differences. That’s absolutely essential. That’s absolutely essential.”

“Utah is perhaps more critical for that than most other places because we have a dominant religious group that outnumbers the whole community. Without tolerance and some sense that others have a place, a meaningful place, we would be in real serious problems.”

“We have to agree to disagree on some things. We have to be able to acknowledge differences and appreciate them based on the way other people see things.”
