Why Tolerate ....?

I have read Professor Leiter’s draft essay “Why Tolerate Religion?” for which Rob gave us the link and published the abstract. I was disappointed that the Leiter essay does not refer to many thoughtful discussions going back for centuries, even millennia, about religion, religious belief, and religious faith that could offer rationales why religion needs more than simply toleration, but certainly toleration will do for the time being. I then re-examined his essay and the abstract provided and began to substitute other topics such as “abortion” and “same-sex marriage” for “religion” and wondered how these and other contemporary topics might weather a Leiter-like scrutiny?     RJA sj
