Nepal Disaster and Tolerating Intolerance

I am absolutely staggered that people are using the disaster in Nepal to push their own brand of religion.

Check out @TonyMiano’s Tweet:

How can one not be immediately concerned with the plight of the millions of humans living in the region? Irrespective of their belief system!

Brings to mind Karl Popper

If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

Foundation Beyond Belief is a charity to accept donations without the connection to a particular brand of religion.
