New to site. Wondering if others puzzled by the new era of religious sensitivities. I am happy to tolerate anyones beliefs however mad, but sensitivity is I think taking it too far. Toleration simply requires that you do not try and interfere in any way that might prevent people from holding/expressing specific beliefs.
Religious sensitivity appears to require that one makes special allowance for given groups on the basis that what you think, do, say may offend them. The only evident reason is that such action/thoughts may provoke violence and is in essence a blackmailer's charter. The more extreme your views the more sensitive you are, the more prone to violence your affiliates are the more sensitive others must be.
Is there any rational justification for being sensitive to others religious beliefs that is not based on fear?
