Many religions have had a difficult time tolerating other faiths. This is particularly true with Christianity in western Europe. Two of the worse examples of inter-religious hatred and persecution have been:

bulletAnti-Semitic teachings and prosecutions over many centuries which directly caused the murder of hundreds of thousands of innocent Jews. They indirectly laid the foundation for the Nazi holocaust and the loss of 6 million Jewish lives.
bulletA religious genocide conducted during the 15th to 18th centuries. Tens of thousands of innocent people who were believed to be Witches or other heretics, were located, tortured, and burned alive. (After the Reformation, Protestants continued the Witch hunt, but they preferred to hang the innocent victims rather than burn them alive.)

Religiously motivated wars, genocides, and civil unrest continue today, largely among Christians, Muslims and Jews. There is a critical need for both international, national, and local agencies that promote Christian-Muslim-Jewish cooperation and understanding. They are notable by their near absence.

In the U.S. there have been attempts by Congressional leaders and conservative Christian groups to terminate the religious freedoms of some non-Christians in the military.
