America's True History of Religious Tolerance

I’ve said this before, but for America to accept a religion into the culture, you have to work for it. A little persuasiveness helps, food helps more, music helps even more, and humor helps the most.

I might add that stories help too. For the Jews, we brought stories to America—the film industry. And maybe two films from this entire studio system were about Jews. Even the Diary of Anne Frank was written by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett—writers of the Thin Man, so I’m not counting that one.
