To accept is to bear with patience the existence of others. It is to put up with the views and actions of other people. It consists in permitting other persons to express their views freely and execute them into activity. Acceptance is essentially a state of mind. For these is the positive action of non- interfering in activity of other persons. Toleration is not in that sense possible among birds and animals. Acceptance can be between one person and another person, as between husband and wife, mother and child among friends. It may be between one individual and group, group and another group, community and community, race and race class and class. There can be toleration in religion-oriented culture; at the same time it is possible for toleration to prevail in completely secular culture. This shows that religion and culture is quire distinct.
