STOP AND THINK – Man is always inclined to be intolerant towards the thing, or person, he hasn’t taken the time adequately to understand. (Robert R. Brown, financier and author)

Why is there so much intolerance in modern society? Why are so many people biased about certain groups or organizations? Could Brown be right? Are our prejudices the result of ignorance? If Brown is right, we could do a lot to overcome the injustices of intolerance by learning more about those we don’t understand. It is certainly worth the effort.

Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly. (Leviticus 19:15)
