Learning, about others beliefs and attitudes, helps us to understand how others feel about their religion and how to interact with them. Knowing some important things about someone’s religion may help us to not offend them during conversation. It will also help us to understand why a certain religion practices and dresses the way they do. Learning about others religion will help us all to not draw conclusions about someone without knowing the facts.
