“Never has one wrong been corrected by a second wrong. Evil has never been resolved by more evil.” (President Nelson)
In light of recent events, Russell M. Nelson, President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints shared a message on his social media accounts where he reminds of the Creator’s call for each of us to abandon attitudes of prejudice against any group or individual.
We join with many throughout this nation and around the world who are deeply saddened at recent evidences of racism and a blatant disregard for human life. We abhor the reality that some would deny others respect and the most basic of freedoms because of the color of his or her skin.
We are also saddened when these assaults on human dignity lead to escalating violence and unrest.
The Creator of us all calls on each of us to abandon attitudes of prejudice against any group of God’s children. Any of us who has prejudice toward another race needs to repent!
During the Savior’s earthly mission, He constantly ministered to those who were excluded, marginalized, judged, overlooked, abused, and discounted. As His followers, can we do anything less? The answer is no! We believe in freedom, kindness, and fairness for all of God’s children!
