"Toleration means that I think that you are wrong and I am just allowing you to live. Is it not blasphemy to think that you and I are allowing others to live? I accept all the religions that were in the past and worship with them all; I worships God with every one of them, in whatever form they worship Him." - Swami Vivekananda. Pasadena, California, Jan 28, 1900.
"We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness......For we know, that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and nonbelievers." - Barrack Hussein Obama. Jan 20, 2009.
"Your religion is like your mother. Just because your mother is less attractive than your friend's mother you can't abandon your mother and adopt a new one." - Mahatma Gandhi.

Don't Drink & Drive advertisements are not about not to drink nor about not to drive. Further, even if you mix two, it does not mean you will certainly have a car accident or automatically get a DUI ticket. It is a matter of probability and making wise decisions. Likewise, the mission here is to impress young adults that inter-religious complexities are real, encourage them to talk about it "sooner than later" and help them make an "informed" decision for their interfaith relationship, what ever that decision is.
