We can get beyond prejudices and assumptions

Sadly, there’s a temptation among humanity to disparage others because of their race, religion, gender, age, hometown, or nationality. And this has been going on for thousands of years. We can read examples of it throughout the Bible—including in Jesus’ day, when those debating whether or not he might be Christ, the promised Messiah, asked, “Shall Christ come out of Galilee?” (John 7:41).

Judging others based on these characteristics often finds expression in an attempt to exclude individuals from places or activities that should be available to all, such as the freedom to live or work where they would like. More hateful forms of prejudice try to block the right to participate in communities and society as a whole.
