Diversity:  The practice or quality of including or involving people from a range of different social and ethnic backgrounds and of different genders, sexual orientations, etc. [Oxford Languages]

If you believe in diversity, it should be fully embraced and not limited to race, gender, ethnicity, etc. Different experiences have shaped our lives and beliefs. Scattered across seven continents, we’ve adopted different customs, ceremonies, and practices. Like the aforementioned familiar attributes, diversity in religion will also enlighten us, expand our learning capacity, and help humankind evolve.

There is no one right or superior religion, just like there is no one right or superior race, gender, or ethnicity.  There is also no safe middle ground to walk upon.  If you believe in partial or selective diversity, then that equates to disbelief.  The concept, to me, is an all-or-nothing proposition.
