Don’t Offend Anybody Now!

Most of us have probably seen a non-discrimination disclaimer similar to the one below:

(ABC Company) does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations.

I think companies craft such statements for two reasons. First, they don’t want to offend anyone. And second, they’re deathly afraid someone might claim discrimination and file a law suit against the company.We’ve become a litigious society because so many “classes” of people are demanding “rights” and equal treatment under the law.

What do the powers that be consider logical remedy, to insure no one gets offended, pass more laws of inclusion. Bring everybody under one big legal umbrella. And if that doesn’t include anybody and everybody (if they miss a “class” of folks) they’ll pass a law to include it.

Laws don’t stop discrimination. Laws force tolerance. People stop discrimination.love of Jesus Compassion stops discrimination. The love of Jesus stops discrimination. The love of Jesus promotes acceptance of those among our vast diversity of racial, ethnic, political, social and religious backgrounds.

They’ll never pass enough laws to keep from offending someone. Discrimination is born in the hearts of those who don’t enjoy and live out of an intimate, personal, loving relationship with Jesus Christ.

One thought on “Don’t Offend Anybody Now!

  1. How can any reasonable person or legal authority justify anyone’s claim to be “offended” if someone enters his or her “private” space? So laws to protect individuals from being discriminated against by doing away with individuals’ rights for privacy, particularly when they are engaged in personal activities that are normally done in private or in the company of same-sexed individuals such as males-males or females-females, destroys their legal right to personal privacy in such circumstances. Most reasonable people would be offended if members of their families in their homes would not respect their right to personal privacy, particularly by family member of the opposite sex, when they were using the facilities of the bathroom. The right to such personal privacy is understood to be a common matter of courtesy in one’s home. It is nonsense to take away this right in public places.
