By merely saying "I belong to religion XYZ", you're saying your right and everyone else is wrong. Otherwise, that wouldn't be your religion. Everyone can't be right, so that makes for a VERY interesting and heated conversation. Some parts can be sound derogatory, but aren't. Saying "Sharia law is bigoted and cruel", for example, is a fact that we can support with evidence.
But, saying we should blow all the muslims off of the Earth certainly is a pretty good sign of religious intolerance. Same can be said for their extremists for wanting to, " Get rid of the infidels" because we don't agree with their beliefs.
That kind of discussion shouldn't be allowed.
