Human Rights – responsibility and necessity for all

May 15, 2008 at 5:54 pm (Human Rights, Scientology) (, )

Religious Freedom

Freedom of religion is a cornerstone of society. To flourish, that freedom must include a tolerance for disparate faiths. It is one of the great paradoxes that, while religions act as primary forces for mutual respect and peace, a significant percentage of the world’s turmoil arises from deep-seated intolerance toward other beliefs and practices.

As a result, religion today is subject to much discussion and critical consideration. Yet at no time has its civilizing influence been more important. We live in a world where many solutions advanced to cure the world’s pressing problems ignore the spiritual nature of humanity. The explosion of intolerance, the plague of drug abuse, the increasing ills of illiteracy, crime and immorality and the rapid rise in terrorism and international conflict demonstrate the futility of purely scientific solutions alone.

Religious organizations, therefore, have an important contribution to make in resolving the ills of society. Indeed, the Scientology religion holds that a reaffirmation of the primacy of the human spirit will bring about resurgence in our civilization.

Scientology is supporting Youth for Human Rights.
