What is the pink and yellow analogy?

Each religion believes that it holds the truth, and "truth" itself is exclusionary. It doesn't mean truth is right or truth is wrong. Truth just is.
It's ridiculous to believe that someone else's belief of the must include your own in order to be inclusive. As ridiculous as telling Iris, who is sure that she sees black on the uni-colored blot, that she must say that she sees yellow because that is what Mohammed sees along with the pink that Shmuley sees and the nothing the Alexis sees.
All of them might be wrong, but only one could be right.
While it can argued whether the blot is truely black, yellow, pink, or nonexistant, it is ridiculous to make anyone believe that he or she should pretend to see what everyone else sees for the sake of inclusion.
Truth excludes falsities.
