Religious Tolerance in Oman

Video Transcript

“The Omanis that I worked with and got to know were a little more, for an Islamic nation, were more liberal. They have in a lot of places [where] Christian churches either can’t operate or have to operate at a very low level. But that wasn't my experience in Oman. You had various expatriates there, British were one example, lots of British, in addition to the military advisors, there’s doctors and nurses and businessmen and all that. And the Anglican Church was right there on the street corner, very open kind of a deal, whereas that would never be the case in Saudi Arabia or Qatar, or even in Kuwait to very large degree. But that would be another example of how they've got a little bit more tolerant sort of a social structure.”

In this video, a retired Army lieutenant colonel discusses religion and religious tolerance in Oman.
