Maybe this is something for an other board on this website, but I put it here since this is so far the only board I’m familiar with for for debate.
What is your opinion on the question in the title.
There are at least two sides on this coin:
- One could see interreligious contacts/debates as adding to tolerance and understanding of other peoples views and beliefs in order to resolve difficulties, tensions, misconceptions.
- One could say that if everybody left the others alone there wouldn’t be difficulties at all.
But there is also the factor curiosity about -or interest in - how other people formed their believes or in what they believe and why.
I would say that this is the most natural and favorable approach since it can give you insight and tolerance without affecting the questioned others negatively.
What do others think about this, including those who don’t have any kind of religion because to me that is a belief on itself.
