at the Other Side
To express our opinions, to stand up for what we believe, to act upon what
we feel is a fundamental right and in a large sense a necessary part of being
fully human. What a person thinks and feels matters. But more important than
freedom of expression is the realization that our view is always limited. As
hard as we try we can never achieve a monopoly on Truth. The Truth beyond our
understanding is that we share the same Creator with that fellow with whom
we might passionately disagree. This means that when there is disagreement
and blood begins to boil, although it is extremely hard we must always respect
the living spirit within our opponent. This is when we turn to God for help.
