Moral Outrage
Whew! God help us!

Why intolerance and hate?

Why is there intolerance and hate?

A sign inside a church in Northern Ireland:  “If we’d been born where they were born and taught what they were taught, we would believe what they believe.”

George Orwell: “People can foresee the future only as it coincides with their own wishes. And the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome.”

Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia: “Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war. And until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man’s skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war.

“And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained… now everywhere is war.”
