If the customs are the same, or similar enough, it's not tolerance.

Ok. So would you say that Christianity is tolerant, when one of its main points is to convert everybody on the planet? Is that real tolerance?

Please tell more how Christianity is intolerant. I'd like to hear it from the horse's mouth.

Which religion is more tolerant:

1. The one that says "We love everyone so much that we want to make sure that they are saved and have eternal life; or,

2. The one that says "Screw everyone else, we are the chosen ones, let's not tell them about our little secret."

Before everyone goes crazy, I do not think that the religion in #2 is intolerant, however it is an appropriate defense when relgion #2 calls religion #1 intolerant simply because they are trying to share salvation with everyone.

Your question whether missionary activity is being tolerant? Yes. Unless knowing that someone believes that their faith is the true one, the feature of all religions, is felling intolerance.
