Should we respect others’ religions?

Should we respect others’ religions?
This has probably been asked before but I didn't find it here on HAF.
Oh yes! . . And what is a cult compared to a “proper” religion?

Take a look at some in this list above. They have the most bizarre rituals and beliefs you could imagine, but no more bizarre than the mainstream religions.

I'll respect a persons right to follow a religion. Beyond that? It's their behaviour and attitude to others that counts.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

With all these atheist churches that are springing up - Sunday Assembly I think they call it  - there is probably one near me.  It isn't something I would want to get involved with but many of you folk here could get coloured booklets printed up and go round you local streets spreading the gospel. No, not the gospel, what is the word I'm looking for? 
The men dressed in dark suits the ladies in pretty dresses, oh! and take a few cute kids with you and your grandmother. Do like the Morons and Jehoshaphat's do. Don’t knock on my door; I wont be in! :-X :'(
