THE UNITY OF RELIGION AND RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE
Many religions classify the failure to perform particular prayers or rituals, or subscribe to certain religious beliefs as on par with moral depravity-like the Catholic view that it is a mortal sin not to go to church on Sunday, just as theft or murder are mortal sins, or the general Christian view that those who don't believe in Jesus, however otherwise good people they may be, must go to hell. Islamic views are generally of the same order. 

Nor do all religions have the same view as to what constitutes a religious person or religious order. For example, several religions, like Judaism, Islam and Protestant Christianity, do not have monastic orders and have been opposed to them or regarded them as unholy. While most religions have some form of prayer or ritual, the yogic and meditation practices of Hinduism are rarely found in predominant Western religions, except among mystics who were generally oppressed or heretics (except in the case of Judaism wherein mysticism was generally part of the religion).
