LOS ANGELES, July 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The United for Human Rights Foundation of Los Angeles announces a series of conferences titled "Religious Tolerance & Intolerance: Shattering Myths." The series will be held the first three Wednesday evenings in August at the Church of Scientology of Los Angeles and will include presentations on Middle Eastern, Judeo-Christian and Eastern Religions.
"Most people have heard of various religions, but they admit their knowledge of all but a few is superficial," says Betsy Davis, Church of Scientology Los Angeles Director of Community Outreach, one of the organizers of the events. "To live in harmony in a multicultural society like ours, it is important to understand diverse faiths so we can fully respect the religious beliefs of others."
One of the distinguished speakers will be Imam Mohammed Zafarullah, an esteemed member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community. Imam Zafarullah's work focuses on reaching out to members of other Muslims communities to communicate to them the teachings and purpose of the Ahmadiyya and its motto "Love for All—Hatred for None."
Shahrooz Ash, editor of the Zoroastrian Journal, will represent the Zoroastrian community. He is also the founder of a non-profit called Lord of Wisdom, dedicated to the prevention of child labor.
The series will take place at the Church of Scientology Los Angeles at 4810 Sunset Blvd Los Angeles, Wednesday evenings, August 3, 10 and 17. Refreshments will be served before each session at 6 pm and the event begins at 7.
