Kenya: Tolerance and religion

African Eye asks some questions about tolerance and what he calls “bullet proof beliefs”…..What's the point of saying we believe in a religion/faith that preaches love, tolerance, kindness if we are then consistently dismissive of and inconsiderate to others? What's the point? There does not even appear to be any INTENTION to follow one's belief. It's like we say we believe what we believe so that we : 1) convinve ourselves that we won't go to hell, 2) make ourselves believe we're really a nice person or 3) can impress others.
