One God, One Faith, One Humanity
This chapter explores issues relevant to working with persons of a different religious background. It also discusses the interaction between people of different religions and expands on religious stereotypes that face persons of the non-Christian faith. It looks at the Islamic faith and in so doing highlights how religious stereotypes can interfere with human interaction. Religion is now an integral part of the human diversity spectrum and needs to be afforded the same consideration in the workplace and in other human interactions as all other forms of diversity. Contemporary religious pluralism adds to the strength and character of American culture. A 1990 poll found that 66% of respondents agreed that prayer is an important part of their daily life, and 88% reported that they have prayed to God.
