Do you believe in diversity? This term is currently used to refer to acceptance of others of different backgrounds, typically with regard to gender, race, and culture. This is a rather narrow view of diversity. Do I believe in diversity? Look at the world around you. I created it all, including the people made in my image, with all their richness and complexity. Perhaps your view of diversity isn’t diverse enough. But some people use this term as a code word for acceptance and approval of all things. This is not what it means. But you can start with the fact that everyone is made in my image , whether they acknowledge me and follow me or not, and use that as the basis to accept rather than reject them, and engage and talk with them.
