Why can we not appreciate all worshippers regardless of their religion?

Since we have freedom of worship.

It would be best if we all would. "live and let live" is a good philosophy in these matters.

Who says you can't? It's a personal choice you're free to like dislike, love, or hate what you want

Not having 1 rules me out. To be honest I really could care less if you do or don't believe in anything. I like the people that are my friends because they're good people that I trust. I don't care if you run around butt naked with sparkler nipple pasties singing to your trash can-my kids would never be left alone with them but I'd lmao.Fair where do you come from, nothing in life is fair many times it's 180 degrees from fair-

Freedom of worship does not necessarily mean that everyone is magically endowed with tolerance or respect for those with other beliefs, sadly.

believing God is our choice but if we do, we can go to heaven. as far the people increasing, they have each thinks of themselves. so they will fight somehow after all they gather their final decisions. but as i said religious is free to all peoples. Do like of worships or not is up to you. The bottomline of this is thank you to your pastors and people who arounds you and go to church! You will know that how come you thought about this question.

It's not entirely a matter of not respecting each other. With the exception of some of the more mainstream religions, most religions do respect a person's right to worship/believe in whatever they want to. They understand that each person has their own path to walk.

The issue is that certain religions teach that they are the ONLY path, and have taught their followers that anyone who is not on that path will face terrible consequences. Therefore some see it as their duty to ensure that no one faces such a fate. So to them it's not being disrespectful when in their mind they are trying to save your soul... even if the reality is that your soul is perfectly fine and not in any danger. Generally that's about the time I just say "thank you" and then move on to something else.

Many can and do. I think it's the same as anything else that some people choose to let get in the way of loving others -- skin color, education level, ethnicity, coming from the "wrong side of the tracks," sexual identity, economic status, etc. It really doesn't matter what it is, there are always going to be those people in the world who don't like people different form themselves. Personally, I think those people live in awfully small worlds.

Some religions preach that they are the only path and need to "save the non-believers".

So they have placed themselves in a prison.

Basically. I'm not one to try to "save" anyone. If you're a good person, in my religion, you get into the afterlife anyway. Also, being a Taoist, it's against my philosophy to force my religion on anyone.

It is written:
John 14:6
Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father, but by me.
Exodus 20:2-3
I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

There is only one God; I pray you do not turn your back on him:
It is written:
Hebrews 10:26
For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins.
Search your heart before you make a choice you will regret; choose you this day whom you will serve: i choose to serve the Lord God.

3 nephi 11:29 For verily, verily I say unto you, he that hath the spirit of contention is not of me, but is of the devil, who is the father of contention, and he stirreth up the hearts of men to contend with anger, one with another.
Jesus said we should have no disputations among us. I believe this to be true. The spirit of God is loving, kind. How do we feel towards eachother when we are arguing over our beliefs or religion? Defensive, hurt, angry, contentions. These are not things of God. We need to be kind to one another and respect each other's beliefs and find common ground on the beliefs we share, like Jesus is the Christ, and we are all God's children.
