Religious Freedom: Beyond Tolerance
This episode explores what is meant by freedom of religion and belief- using Article 18 of the UN Declaration of Human Rights as a starting point. What it means in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is explored, and how understanding this right can help people better live as disciples of Christ. Examples of where freedom of religion and belief isn't upheld are explored and what people should do to ensure all people have this right around the world.
