The cross of the war memorial and a menorah for Hanukkah coexist in Oxford.

Religious toleration is when people allow other people to think about god(s) in ways that they do not think are true. They tolerate religious beliefs and practices which are different from their own beliefs or lack of beliefs.

In a country with a state religion, toleration means that the government allows other religions to be there.
