September 11 - Let the intolerance stop
This is a call to all people - No matter what you believe
"Does God's light guide us or blind us?" - 11"09"01 - 11 Short films
On this September the 11th 2003, second anniversary of the World Trade
Center attacks, I send this chain letter in the hope of promoting
religious tolerance. September 11 is just one of the many examples of
religious hatred, intolerance and discrimination that happens each and
every day under our very own watch. Religious intolerance is a issue as
it has been for thousands of years and stopping it starts with you.
Show that you are against the great religious intolerance the world
suffers every day by joining this pledge:
I shall respect those of other beliefs to mine.
I shall allow others to practice their beliefs without fear or
discrimination by myself or others.
I shall stand up for the rights of myself and others by standing up
against religious intolerance.
I shall uphold and respect the basic human rights that everyone
Religious intolerance is a huge global problem and stopping it starts
with you. You can help stop the great religious injustices occurring

the message out. We need to stop the disgusting intolerance before
things get worse.
Do this, out of the goodness of your heart.

mantle of belief and faith only to distort it’s most sacred teachings --
preaching intolerance and resorting to violence" - Hillary Clinton
