It Is Neither

The existence of “religious diversity” is neither an opportunity nor a problem, in the sense that it is something to be either cultivated or avoided. Rather it is simply a fact. It is just part of the real world that a multitude of different religions exist. One doesn’t either promote or attempt to avoid features of the world that are simply part of the fabric of reality. A billion Hindus believe that there are a multitude of gods and a like number of Buddhists deny there are any personal deities at all. This is just a feature of our world. An opportunity is something we anticipate because it is a possibility which we relish for its anticipated results. Religious diversity, on the other hand, is simply a given of the world we inhabit. It is not going to go away. Actually, it makes our world a far more interesting place.
