Religious Tolerance is a Symbod of Civilization

The Times (London) has an interesting article regarding Witchcraft, Druidism, and Paganism where in they indicate that the sign of a civilized society is its tolerance and acceptance of alternative religions. They say, in part, "Today the wheel has turned full circle... it is a mark of civilised society that those who follow these beliefs are accorded the same rights as those who follow mainstream faiths."

The article also mentions that the "Pagan Federation — set up in 1971 — is gaining influence and has become
main liaison body between pagan ministers and hospitals, prisons and
authorities."  Besides, the Pagan Federation noted there, there is also a Pagan Federation International.
