The right of people to hold any religious beliefs, or none, and to carry out any practices in accordance with those beliefs or with that absence of belief, so long as these practices do not interfere with other people's legal or civil rights, or any reasonable laws, without fear of harm or prosecution.

http://www.yourdictionary.com...

"Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion. This right shall include freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice, and freedom, either individually or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in worship, observance, practice, and teaching" -Article 18(1) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights

http://www.state.gov...

Religious freedom is not the right to violate other individual's religious freedoms or their civil rights.

Exactly, but we will observe believers hypocrisy of embracing their right to religious freedoms while they violate others rights to the same freedoms.

How many multitudes have been killed under the banner of tolerance?

If you have found True Faith, you are able to live among the pagans. In fact, it is a missionaries job to live among the pagans.

There is no compulsion in religion. Honest people do not choose what they believe in.

None, but many have been killed under the banner of religious intolerance.

And yet, the missionaries have wiped out many pagans throughout history.

Yes, they do. It is the dishonest who offer no choices.

There are plenty of people who claim tolerance who are not very tolerant of what they perceive to be intolerant.

If you attach baggage to the things I say, you are going to have trouble understanding me. It would serve you better to abandon preconceptions.

This is, after all, the scientific approach to things, is it not?

No, what you say is nonsensical gibberish.
