Eliminating Racial Prejudice – A Social Necessity and Religious Fundamental

“Know ye not why We created you all from the same dust?  That no one should exalt himself over the other.  Ponder at all times in your hearts how ye were created.”

“Ye are the fruits of one tree, and the leaves of one branch. Deal ye one with another with the utmost love and harmony, with friendliness and fellowship.” 

(Quotes taken from the Bahá’í Writings)


–  What are the implications of racial prejudice on justice, peace, individual and social maturity and growth?
–  How does the Bahá’í Faith approach this, the most challenging issue facing our nation?
–  Why is the elimination of prejudice important to spiritual and social progress?

Join us as we discuss the importance of the eliminating racial prejudice.

Friday, April 3rd 2020 at The Bahá’í Center of Washtenaw County
Doors open at 7pm | Program begins at 7:30
Refreshments will be served!

Firesides are informal presentations and discussions about religion, society and the Bahá’í Faith. This is the second in a series of discussions entitled:

World Peace: A Tactical Approach

During this series we will examine how The Bahá’í Faith reaches beyond simply espousing a desire for world peace. Bahá’ís believe that we have been given a divine plan enumerating the essential aspects of social and personal advancement necessary for achieving world unity and peace.

In this series of three open discussions, each will focus on a specific aspect of the Bahá’í approach to carrying forward an ever-advancing civilization, realizing personal growth and establishing global peace and harmony.

The final topic in this series will be:

Oneness of Religions and Freedom from Religious Exclusivity – Friday, May 1st

Prejudice in any form is a barrier to spiritual and cultural progress – religious prejudice is no exception. The teachings of the Bahá’í Faith themselves state: “If religion becomes the source of antagonism and strife, the absence of religion is to be preferred.” How can we change how we view other faiths? What exactly is the Bahá’í Faith’s take on other religions? Join us to discuss religious exclusivity and religious unity.
