Respect for all an answer to discrimination

Feb 20, 2020

The question was posed to families to bring to their youth, “Racism is an acknowledged curse of our day, but is there not much more to consider when it comes to discrimination?  Does the word itself become the problem as it suggests making a negative value judgement. Doesn’t nature show us that everything has its rightful place?  What is the real answer to lack of acceptance of differences and the value of everything that exists in creation?

Brethren, show no partiality as you hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ.  If a man with gold rings and in fine clothing comes into your assembly and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in and you pay attention to the one who wears fine clothing have you not made distinction among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts. James 2:1-9.

Pope Francis:  How can we genuinely teach the importance of concern for other vulnerable beings, however troublesome or inconvenient they may be if we fail to protect a human embryo even when its presence is uncomfortable and creates difficulties?   If personal and social sensitivity towards the acceptance of the new life is lost, then other forms of acceptance that are valuable for society also wither away.  LS 120
