All faiths seek to make sense of the miracle of life which we all share.
Tolerance is part of being a New Yorker.
We don’t represent any religion
We have been taught our differences, when in fact our similarities are more striking.
In colonial times, Roman Catholicism had a major influence on the Latin world, but Latins are of all faiths including science, nature or nothing at all. Protestantism was a historic response to some of Catholicism’s failings. Judaism has a big influence on what it means to be a New Yorker. Islam, West African faiths and Indigenous beliefs are also part of who we are.
