Teaching Tolerance not Hate

The Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Office would like to call your attention to the increasingly concerning issue of hate in the United States at this time.  It’s a difficult issue to discuss and even to admit it is a problem.  It seems hate groups are getting a lot of press coverage and teaching tolerance and respect for human beings as the sacred beings they are gets a bit lost.

There are two websites you might be interested in that deal specifically with the rising concerns of dealing with hate on several levels and the necessity/responsibility of teaching tolerance and respect.  The first presents the many levels of hate speech and action including: hate and extremism, children’s rights, immigrant justice and more. You can find it here at the Southern Poverty Law Center: http://www.splcenter.org   The second website deals with teaching tolerance on a number of topics: race and ethnicity, religion, ability, class, etc.  You can find these subjects at the bottom of the page when going to their website: http://www.tolerance.org
