Religious tolerance reflects your country's acceptance or lack thereof of certain religions. If you tolerate a religion, its adherents in your provinces will be less likely to revolt and countries of that faith will view your stance favorably. Conversely, believers of religions you do not tolerate will be more likely to revolt and countries of those faiths will view your government less favorably.

Tolerance can also affect your population growth.
