Welcome to Roger’s Take on Religion: An Inclusive Perspective
America, it seems, is becoming more accepting of racial differences and less tolerant of religious differences.
According to a recent study by University of Minnesota sociologists, for every religious group there’s a significant increase over the past decade in disapproval of marriage outside one’s own faith. At the same time, there’s significantly less disapproval of a child marrying a person of another race.
What is being suggested here is that it is more acceptable today for a non-black to marry an African-American than for a non-Muslim to marry a Muslim. (Muslims have replaced atheists as the most hated group in America.)
Religion, not race, is our new scapegoat.
Here’s My Take: There’s an African word, ubuntu, that means “I am because we are.” Without this inclusivity, the God of love gets ditched again.
