Do you agree that prejudice can sometimes be subtle, or sneaky ?
Here in rural NL, folks display ageist attitudes when they talk about the weather !
On days that are less than perfect, one will hear comments like:
‘It’s a miserable old day’, or, ‘It’s a nasty old day’, or ‘It’s a foggy old day’. (you get the idea)
All less than perfect days are called ‘old’.
However, we also have many beautiful days, but the age of these days is not mentioned. They are just ‘nice days’.
Yesterday was one of those nice days. The ocean was as calm as a pond, and the evening sky was dramatic.
May we ask God for the grace to be able to identify, and speak up against every form of bias or discrimination.
We are all in agreement that prejudice, in any form, is unacceptable to God.
Psalm 118:24 – This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
