Tolerance,love and peace

In Norway we have recently had a discussion on hijab in the police force. It is strange to think that the Bible, and epecially St. Paul, says a lot more about/for hijab than the Koran, wich only mentions it indirectly as far as I know.
But Paul was a very wise man. His words:
So there is no difference between Jews and Gentiles, between slaves and free men, between men and women: you are all one in union with Christ Jesus (Gal. 3. v.28). form a sort of background for my understandig of "tolerance".
It is strange that it took the church more than 1000 years to understand this with slaves and free men, and we are still working on / clearly not undrestanding, the truth about men and women yet. And we will probably never understand/practice his "Song of love" untill our hearts of stone is completely changed.
