Decentered or Erased?
From Series: "The Tolerance Trap"
We are Universalists, which means no one is outside the circle of love. Everyone’s in. No exceptions. This is one big reason we welcome everyone, regardless of their beliefs. We know everyone has a piece of the truth and need everyone’s perspective to help make sense of the whole. But what about those people who hold views radically divergent from our core values? What about…White Supremacists? …Anti-Gay Activists? …my anti-vax cousin? …my Trump-supporting friend? Where are the legitimate limits of our capacity to tolerate difference, and what’s just our version of religious hypocrisy? We’re diving into The Tolerance Trap, a two-episode mini-series exploring the nuances of Universalism, the fallacy of neutrality, and the inescapable paradox of tolerance.
