We Make the Systems; It's Up to Us to Improve Them
Religion at its best encourages love, peace, compassion, and kindness (same is true for other social institutions: Family, Government, Economic systems, Education)...when the social institutions promote hatred and violence, they have been defiled. Social institutions at their best lift up everyone without needing to marginalize whole groups of people. Sadly, we've seen the institutions far too seldom at their best.
