While most of us may wish to believe that we are free from any bigotry/ prejudice / bias, these thoughts may be fare more deep rooted. Hence adopting an ‘holier than thou’ stance may not be beneficial in the true sense.
A better way forward could be to accept there could be gaps and work towards ironing them out. There could still be some irreconcilable situations. For example: One may have a person from another faith as a best friend or a business partner. But marrying him or her may not be practical or possible for one reason or the other. Such situations are still possible and acceptable.
But treating one person differently from another just on the basis of his or her denomination (gender/ race/ religion etc) is a different ball game altogether. It would be really nice if everyone can touch his/ her heart and vouch ‘All Clear’.
