Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The information via the link is more than this brain can absorb in one sitting - and there are even more links given to follow! - so I've bookmarked it and will return. It seems appropriate to look at this during Lent and consider carefully my own perceptions and prejudices as I relate to others.
