prejudice and discrimination


why you should not

  • All human beings are created by God (everyone should be treated equally, regardless of skin colour)
  • Jesus taught that we should love one another: "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself" (Greatest Commandment)
  • Parable of the Good Samaritan taught that everyone is our neigbour, not just those like ourselves.
  • Jesus taught that we shouldn't make judgement on other people (Sermon on the Mount- "Do not judge or you too will be judged")
