Spiritual Perspective: Embracing diversity may be difficult, but it could unite the world

Our latest struggles as a nation with human diversity remind me of one of my math classes. One would make an initial assumption and then continue with the proof. If the result was a contradiction, one would conclude that the original assumption must have been false.

Any assumption that leads to the marginalization or objectification of a group of people based on religion, race, gender, nationality or class requires re-examination, as it contradicts God’s teachings.
