Religious Freedom Laws Help Create Culture of Tolerance

May 2, 2009

Flushing has become a model for religious pluralism in America. [. . .]

While many communities in the United States are religiously diverse, Hanson said, the dense concentration of houses of worship and absence of widespread religious conflict in Flushing make it special.

There are a lot of students in Youth Voices who live in Flushing. I wonder if they represent a wide diversity of religious backgrounds I wonder if they feel there is tolerance of their differences.

I like the way you try to think about how the people in Flushing represent diversity and tolerance. I agree with you because they get togather.
