    believe in things that are not true.

    Human advancement has come from abandoning beliefs that were not true, even if they seemed harmless. Actually, let me fix that, especially if they didn't seem harmless. This incident is proves my point: Tim Tebow came very close to giving tacit support to a pretty hateful organization simply because he thought they were Christian.

    In general, people have a wrong conception of what religious tolerance means. Yeah, I hope people eventually stop believing things which are not true, as I hope for myself. I ain't gonna put a gun to their head. Religious tolerance means not burning people's houses down because of their religion; but opining you think someone else's religion is false is almost the definition of religion.
