Overcoming prejudice (part one)

Black/white. Muslim/Christian. High caste/low caste. Protestant/Catholic. Female/male. We/they.

It sometimes seems that the family of man, living on what is increasingly viewed as "a small planet," is caught up in an unending spiral of prejudice, suspicion, hatred. Racial prejudice, religious prejudice, ethnic, sexual, economic, and political. In a century vastly changed by new technologies, centuries-old prejudices remain stubbornly rooted in many parts of the world.

Others are showing by their successful efforts to live peaceably together that religious differences do not have to mean suspicion or friction.
