All prejudices ...

All prejudices, whether of religion, race, politics or nation, must be renounced, for these prejudices have caused the world’s sickness.

Until all these barriers erected by prejudice are swept away, it is not possible for humanity to be at peace.
Contemplate first the prejudice of religion: consider the nations of so-called religious people; if they were truly worshippers of God they would obey His law which forbids them to kill one another....
