Commentator Bill Moyers looks at how — over a generation or two — America has become a very religiously diverse nation. Almost 2,000 religions are now practiced in the United States. He says religious diversity may be one of the biggest challenges of the next century — especially religious intolerance. He concludes "the antidote to bad theology is good democracy."
