In response to the Daily Post’s prompt “Eighth Sin”
Remember the seven cardinal sins? You’re given the serious task of adding a new one to the list — another trait or behavior you find particularly unacceptable, for whatever reason. What’s sin #8 for you? Why?
7 Cardinal Sins: Gluttony, Pride, Greed, Sloth, Lust, Wrath, Envy
8th Sin: Discrimination
People are very quick to judge each other based solely on their race, ethnicity, religion, political views, gender…etc. It’s very easy to find the differences in people, because we are meant to be different. But what takes effort, effort which some are unwilling to put, is find similarities between the different. In a world of human rights laws and anti-racism agendas, discrimination is still alive and rampant. In fact, it is often practiced by the same legislators that are suppose to fight against it. It is very easy to preach equality and fairness, but how many people actually live by those values and how many feel an obligation to enforce them.
