Catholic Word of the Day: DISCRIMINATION, 12-31-12 ^ | 12-31-12 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 12/31/2012 10:08:21 AM PST by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


In philosophy, the power of the mind clearly to distinguish between objects, whether real or conceptual, and between right and wrong in moral matters. Consequently, it is also the distinction between things that the mind recognizes, whether and how they differ. In popular usage, discrimination has come to mean acting toward someone or something with bias or prejudice. (Etym. Latin discriminare, to set apart as different, distinguish.)

Here are 2 good articles on this topic-

“What’s discrimination” by a black author on a Jewish website-

“Jesus Would Discriminate”

We’ve sadly become a society where it’s now a “virtue” to be indiscrimate and undiscerning.
