Small thought on Rights Biases

Have you ever noticed how complex arguments against groups of people’s rights become as our actions escalate? The rationale behind acts of aggression or violence becomes it’s own doctrine as human rights violations become worse. When it comes to race, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, gender, or what have you, we make more of a fuss about victim’s group affiliations than being upset that a person in our world should be treated worse than anyone else. Why is that? If a (blank) person is treated in a way that a person shouldn’t be, isn’t that enough reason to trigger our concern? There is no partiality before God.

I am a teacher-to-be who loves people. I am not afraid of many things. I like to explain my thoughts logically on a very birds-eye view level--I was born thinking that way. I follow Jesus Christ, and I accept only that label to describe my identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
