Stories of prejudice (Religious Prejudice).
There has been a very long history of religious prejudice. For example, Christianity is guilty of many crimes against Judaism for over the last 2,000 years. Every Jew in England was cast out, and the few who remained they were burned to death. However, when Hitler murdered 6 million Jews, it was of another principle “race”, not faith, that was the main criteria.
Around the world there are many situations where religion can cause and complicate things. Sometimes religion was in the past and it is in the present a major cause of problems,or may even be used just as an excuse.
Often, ignorance is just worsens a difficult situation. The press doesn’t always help, reinforcing stereotypes and publicizing only the negative stories. For example, many people are currently very concerned about Muslims and they are hated or distrusted, and used as scapegoats for others foolishness.
How should we respond to disputes between the religions? How should Christians treat people of other religions? Is it possible for mankind to live together peacefully with other people who have very different beliefs?
Out of what we can see and experience in the world it looks like not, everyone is choosing conflict and war instead of peace and love.
