I am utterly dumbfounded by the prejudice and hate on display from some people this weekend. But I’m encouraged by the open arms and messages of love from so many more.
As we talk about and debate this in our homes and communities; churches, mosques, and temples; work places and public spaces, this comes down to how we should treat people. Do we say nothing and allow a person be discriminated against based on their appearance, gender, or faith?
We speak up, we tell the world this sort of behaviour is unacceptable, and together we are the light that overcomes the darkness.
