In the wake of the Embassy attack i would like to discuss Religious/Spiirutal Tolerance a little bit in depth.
yesteray, i saw a commercial involving a priest and rabbi playing chess, while they jokingly bickered about moves made a Imam came to them bringing
1 the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with : the
tolerance of corruption | an advocate of religious tolerance.
Something that "one does not agree" too..
My best example of Tolerance would be children, those pesky little children that you may have or handled at one time or another. Kids are great, only
when they are doing what they are suppose and not suppose to do. Pretty sure we don't want our kids to punch a teacher.
How much tolerance does a parent have in order to control their kids without spanking(not htting) or grounding? Has a parent control their kids with
restrictions, rules and orders? Or let the child do whatever they please with no set boundaries. To balance all of this and having a happy positive

Through commonality all 3 Abrahamic religions can find at least 25% of agreement on something. Perhaps common characters pop up in different books.
Or that they believe in this and the other is a little different but shares in some aspect. Although, doctrine is entirely different, lifestyle
and belief. More times than not we share commonalities through religion.
Common trait of all three religions is the next messiah. Commonlity
Christian/Islam- jesus (although looked differently among them)
And in the end of the day, we all enjoy sitting down and eating
