Yes. Free expression of religion must always be respected.
Yes, but only if its not harrassing, stalking, or legislation.
No. Keep your religiously-based hatred to yourself.
No. We should seek to end this completely.
Racist views/feelings are okay. Acting on them is not.
If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.
If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
What do you mean, should we tolerate?
As in, should we forbid people from speaking such things and throw them into prison if they do?
As in, should we pass laws making their beliefs a hate crime?
As in, should those who disagree with them be free to criticise their beliefs?
My answers are no, no and yes.

The problem with racist religions is they tend to be violent. We once had alot of white supremest where I live, they were burning crosses in yards, harassing blacks, Mexicans, Jews etc not to mention robbing banks to finance their hate so I say no, don't tolerate them. We didn't tolerate them here, they pretty much got run out on a rail.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Gay slurs are a form of this and when they become hurtful to others people need to draw a line. Feminism is attacked in the same way with words. Blacks have suffered word attacks in every way possible. We can all hold our tongue and be more civil to other. I do step over the line in the area of religion. I know better. When the actions turn to violence they are criminal.
Should we tolerate religious views that are racist. I don't think there is any reason to tolerate racism.
The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

Hate nothing except hatred.
people are free to tolerate, or not tolerate, anything they wish.
personally, tolerate most beliefs... but I do not tolerate assholes.... I am openly intolerant, and sometimes even violent, to assholes.
