Sunday Webcast: Forcing Religious Fanaticism on Others

By Diana Hsieh

In Sunday's live Philosophy in Action Webcast, I'll be answering a question on forcing religious fanaticism on others that I think will be of interest. The question is:

Why do religious fanatics seek to impose their beliefs on others? Most religious fanatics aren't content to practice their religion for themselves: they seek to impose it on others by law. Why is that? Why is that wrong? What can be done to combat it?
Go to www.PhilosophyInAction.com on Sunday at 8 am PT / 9 am MT / 10 am CT / 11 am ET to watch me answer this question live and join in the text chat. Be sure to check out the other questions for this week's webcast.

I'd love to hear what your own answer to this question, whether before or after the webcast! Please feel free to post your answer in the comments!
