PREJUDICE

Notes & Transcripts

There remains one form of prejudice in modern culture that is growing and deemed socially acceptable. In a recent study, 49% of Republicans and 33% of Democrats said they would be upset if their son or daughter married someone affiliated with the other political party. That is up from 1960 when the percentages were 5% and 4%. “In study after study, political scientists are finding that Republicans and Democrats view each other with a growing disdain that borders on hatred.”

Ezra Klein and Alvin Chang, writing in Vox.com conclude, “It’s the one form of bigotry that’s still acceptable, with entire TV networks devoted to making Democrats or Republicans look stupid and dangerous. Partisanship now strongly influences our choice of friends, where we choose to live, what sources of information we allow into our homes and devises—even who we love.”

It remains for Christ Followers to remember the words of scripture, that in Jesus Christ we are all one. --Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
