I have seen (not here, somewhere else) where people will say they don't know about any religions beside their own, and people have said that is just terrible and wrong and that the person must be an intolerant person.
Is it really that bad if someone has no knowlege of other religions or interest in learning about other religions, if they are not prejudice against other religions and treat everyone with respect?
Knowing about all the worlds religions seems to be a big deal on CM, I know it is desirable to know about how other people live/believe, but to some it just isn't of interest, like some people aren't interested in art or music, etc.
I'm obviously not talking about people who spread hate and intolerance of others, with no desire of hearing that what they are saying is not true. But, is it really "that bad" if someone doesn't know about other religions and beliefs?Answer Question

I think it's incredibly sad. How do you know you have found the religion for you if you are unwilling to look at what else is out there. How do you expect to add any opinion of value if you have not bothered to even explore the different ones that exist. It's like not knowing the basics of how to cook. (Boil water, make scramble eggs, slice bread) and forming an opinion on the right steps. You cannot form an opinion when you have not explored what else is possible. you can only repeat what has been told to you.
