What about people whose religious faith commands that all infidels (unbelievers) should be put to death? Do they deserve the same tolerance?
"In our religion, there is a special place in the hereafter for those who participate in jihad.
We--with God's help--call on every Muslim who believes in God and wishes to be rewarded to comply with God's order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it.
Acquiring weapons for the defense of Muslims is a religious duty. If I have indeed acquired these weapons, then I thank God for enabling me to do so."
- Osama bin Laden
If we say that faith in invisible gods is a good thing, aren't we really enabling the extreme fringe groups? Do they deserve the same open-mindedness?
