    Check prejudices with observation, you might find , they belong to some one else.

    Everyone has some prejudices. I'm no exception to the rule. I recently saw a woman in a grocery store with one of those burkas on with only a peep hole for her eyes. This caused me to have a multitude of negative thoughts about this creature of a "religion of peace". For this I have no guilt.

    Jim K, if I may .. a rational prejudice might well be developed for her religion, but don't take it out on the woman .. for her, it's self-preservation. As for me, I recall the Broadway Musical South Pacific and the lyric, "You've got to be taught to ... and hate, you've got to be carefully taught." Else where do prejudices come from; in MY mind, certainly not innate.

    It is just an observation of separation. If they wish to entrench themselves with their laws, Perhaps they should go back, to their home. Rather than bring their deception to our streets.

    In the search for truth, I have to be willing to expose my long held beliefs to the light of reason over and over. It has been said that after crossing the river, the canoe is left behind. ;-)
