“So much blood has been shed by the Church because of an omission from the Gospel: ‘Ye shall be indifferent as to what your neighbor’s religion is.’ Not merely tolerant of it, but indifferent to it. Divinity is claimed for many religions; but no religion is great enough or divine enough to add that new law to its code.” 

—Mark Twain (1835-1910), writer/philosopher, from Albert Bigelow Paine, Mark Twain, a Biography (1912)

• Editorial Comment: Well, there’s “Live and Let Live,” isn’t there?
