Q:

What are pluralistic societies?

A:

Pluralistic societies are those that contain a diverse group of religious cultures and traditions. Pluralistic societies exist around the world, including the United States. Pluralism typically contains four components, which at the simplest level are diversity, tolerance, commitment and communication.

Pluralistic societies contain many different religious groups. Getting people in those religious groups to tolerate each other requires building relationships and engaging in interactions. Pluralism also requires society's members to tolerate and understand those with different beliefs, which involves education about the various religions. Similarly, a pluralistic society needs a high degree of tolerance among society members to keep the peace and reduce the preconceived notions and stereotypes. Lastly, pluralistic societies require open communication, with all members participating as both listeners and speakers.
