importantly…as far as we're concerned, at least… human life.
You might think that humans…conscious, aware, intelligent beings capable of language, rationality,
empathy, and so much more…. [Three people stood in a field]
…would be wise enough to set aside their differences and get along.
I mean, come on, we’re not dim-witted sloths. [Sloth eating a leaf upside down]
Sorry, sloths. Take a look at this.
And…all these, too.
Yep. Maybe we didn’t give the sloths enough credit.
Death, torture and abuse have been around for a long time... and much of it because [People in a room in ancient times]
of a few minor differences in religious beliefs.
Which is pretty funny, because all of these different religions… [An empty church room]

We've done a lot for a Klondike Bar and we're not proud of it.
But uh…back to the religion thing.
Far too often, people spend more time focusing on other’s differences than on their similarities.
And the tiniest little comment about one of those differences...
…can contribute to something much bigger…and much more devastating…than might have been intended. [People protesting in Palestine]
So even if you just wanted to impress your friends with your “hilarious” quip about
someone else's religion… [Man telling a joke about religion and girl looks unimpressed]
…and please note the sarcasm….
…you're only adding fuel to the fire… encouraging the world to be rooted in hate
and intolerance, rather than reaching toward acceptance and brotherhood. [A huge pile of rubble]
And… what kind of a world would that be?
It's, uh… kind of the world we're in now.
Man…looks like we’re not the only ones who [Man points gun at employee of ice cream store]
would do some messed up things for a Klondike Bar…
