Religious bilingualism is a critically important skill to navigate in religiously diverse landscapes. For example, it is the practiced ability of a Mormon to speak to a Catholic employing the distinct religious language of Catholicism. A simple illustration might be a general knowledge and understanding of the import of Papal Bulls. Conversely, it is the practiced ability of a Catholic to speak to a Mormon employing the distinct religious language of Mormonism. A simple example might include a general knowledge and understanding of the import of Temples to Latter-day Saints. Furthermore, religious bilingualism is usually a sign of sincere interest to understand and show respect for other faiths and the adherents of those faiths. It is civil and usually stems human tendencies to categorize peoples of different faiths as perpetually “other.”
