There is no such thing as a lesser person

October 22 – Texas Journey in Dallas!

Once again, we met murder victim family members at a First Unitarian Church event tonight. It seems that everywhere we go, there are witnesses of the violence that spreads in Texas.

The First Unitarian Church in Dallas has scheduled a whole program of events on human rights, in collaboration with SMU and Dr. Rick Halperin. There were songs by Charlie King and Karen Brandow, stories by George White and Sandrine Ageorges-Skinner, as well as interventions from many attending our event.

Unitarian Universalists promote their Seven Principles and Purposes, of which at least two echo the message and mission we promote in our organization:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations

As Rick Halperin always says: There is no such thing as a lesser person. I hope to see more congregations adopt and respect these basic principles. Our world would be a better place…
