We do not promote our own religious beliefs. We can't because we are a multi-faith group. We try to explain the full diversity of religious belief in North America, from Asatru to Zoroastrianism, including Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Taoism, Wicca, other religious groups, and spiritual/ethical/secular groups.
Open-minded and fair, unlike most religious sites, showing every side of various arguments.
This is like my favorite site for religion
Great for figuring out who believes what.
From the page: "On this site, religious tolerance means:
To extend religious freedom to people of all religious traditions, even though you may well disagree with their beliefs and/or practices. Having tolerance toward another religion does not require you to endorse that faith group's beliefs; it simply indicates your respect for it and its membership.
Religious tolerance does not require you:
To accept all religions as equally true."
One of the supreme impartial information sites about religion and society.
Have used this website for so much research on religion and other theological ideas. The ability to post your own essays and find opinions and information on almost any subject makes this website one of my favorite sites on the internet.
"Religious tolerance means: To extend religious freedom to people of all religious traditions, even though you may disagree with their beliefs and/or practices."
This is the site to look through if you are searching for your own spirituality. I found it extremely helpful. A must read in light of the war. Maybe if more of the Iraq people read through this, they would have more tolerance for each other, and work together to KICK the U.S. out...lol.
This what the world need a place for everyone.
From The Page :We are a multi-faith group. As of 2006-JAN, we consist of one Atheist, Agnostic, Christian, Wiccan and Zen Buddhist. Thus, the OCRT staff lack agreement on almost all theological matters: belief in a supreme being, the nature of God, interpretation of the Bible and other holy texts, whether life after death exists and what form it takes, etc.
I cant help but not like reading this kind of stuff. Me being non religious, I find it a fascinating read, which, when I share it with my wife[a Christian] opens up to dialog and debate, sometimes heated, but it beats sitting & watching TV. Agree/disagree with the site - who cares -Its a neat lil old read. If I sent you to a bad place. Sorry.
A closer look seems to suggest the contents of this site come from a quasi-Christian perspective. The effort to make peace is commendable, but the covering up of the organization's true roots is not.
There is helpful information here about various religions & religious controversies. Don't take this site as the final word on any of the subjects they review. But, they have several helpful outline overviews of a wide range of topics. I can understand why some people get upset about this site, but it would help them to lighten up a bit. It can be helpful from time to time.
I really don't know what to say - I have just read a selection of the hate and bile poured onto this site by "Christians" (none of whom, it seems can spell - even the most basic Anglo-Saxon expletives). I thought, but of course I am holding myself up to being shot at here, I thought Christianity was supposed to espouse tolerance. Maybe I didn't understand the religious teaching I had? Islam, by the way is one of the most tolerant religions, as was shown, for example, by the freedom non-Muslims enjoyed under the Ottomans. Any group should not be tainted by the actions of an extremist minority, what we need is more tolerance and certainly more understanding. Perhaps some of these people should read their Bibles more carefully - "Love thy neighbour as thyself".

I might like this site if their various biases didn't show quite so glaringly.
