We cannot harm or mistreat another person unless we first see them as being inferior to us or deserving to be discriminated against or punished for their actions. When we sit in judgment of others we are opening the door for their unfair treatment. This is especially true in the areas of our differences in race, religion, politics, and social-economic status.
"I believe that the idea that God is a being who can be damaged or offended by God’s creations, and who feels a need to punish human beings for not doing what God demands, is at the root and at the heart of humanity’s so-often dysfunctional dealings with each other."
Neale Donald Walsch
