We have read and watched, in the two You Tube clips from the Judaism and Christianity chapters, that monotheistic proselytizing religions have often been blamed for colonizing or destroying indigenous and foreign religions. Today, most of the world’s monotheists live in countries that were once colonized by Portugal, France, Britain, Spain, Germany or other European countries. Because of this history, some critics of monotheism have argued that monotheistic religions are bad neighbors to other religions. Your task in this prompt is to reflect on this critique in light of what we have read about the history, practice, and teachings of Monotheistic faiths. Based on the readings and the YouTube clips we have watched explain whether or or not the teachings and practices of  monotheistic faiths are ful resources for becoming neighbors with the other non-monotheistic faiths we have studied? Explain why or why not. Introduce the position you are taking and clearly explain in a sentence or two why you are taking the position. Discuss the historical events, practices or teachings that you think make monotheistic religion a good neighbor or a bad neighbor. (Be sure to use information from Brodd text and YouTube clips.) Expound on what you have articulated in paragraph one or present other relevant historical, events, or teachings. *Note: You may not see a need to take two paragraphs here if not continue to the next point. Discuss what monotheist stand to learn from other religions, which we have read, that could make them better neighbors. Or, if you think Christians are good neighbors discuss what you think the other religions we have read could learn from monotheism.(Expound on this point as you see fit.) *Note: Choose only one or two religions here. You do not need to discuss all of the religions we have read. You also could choose to group the religions if you find they hold one thing in common that is distinct from monotheistic faith. Restate and summarize your argument. Discuss what you think is the future for monotheism as it is faced with coming to terms with an awareness of religious diversity. 1. 12pt font 2. 1 inch margins 3. 800 words maximum 4.
