If the divorced are remarried civilly, they find themselves in a situation that objectively contravenes God's law. Consequently, they cannot receive Holy Communion as long as this situation persists. This norm is not at all a punishment or a discrimination against the divorced and remarried, but rather expresses an objective situation that of itself renders impossible the reception of Holy Communion: '. . . If these people were admitted to the Eucharist, the faithful would be led into error and confusion regarding the Church's teaching about the indissolubility of marriage'.Pope Benedict XVI
Racism is one of the biggest taboos in our culture, yet most discrimination against Asian-Americans goes largely unnoticed...its blown off by the rest of the media as a joke, as in "Look at them. They get all up in arms over nothing".Moran Margaret Cho

I guess the clarification I should make here is that Japan is as potentially racist as anywhere else, but for a developed country, the legal and social protections and recourses afforded to people of differences are lacking comparatively. Racial discrimination is still not illegal in Japan, and this is something the Japanese government promised to fix when it signed the UN Convention on it in 1995. In short, Japan is not an outlier in terms of racism, but it is in terms of protections against it.Debito Arudou

It's a great mistake, I think, to put children off with falsehoods and nonsense, when their growing powers of observation and discrimination excite in them a desire to know about things.Anne Sullivan
Legislation to apply the principle of equal pay for equal work without discrimination because of sex is a matter of simple justice.Dwight David Eisenhower
Tact is the discrimination of differences. It consists in conscious deviations.Theodor Adorno
Education is important because, first of all, people need to know that discrimination still exists. It is still real in the workplace, and we should not take that for granted.Alexis Herman
And each of us can practice rights ourselves, treating each other without discrimination, respecting each other's dignity and rights.Carol Bellamy
How I wish we lived in a time when laws were not necessary to safeguard us from discrimination.Barbra Streisand
Discrimination is a hellhound that gnaws at Negroes in every waking moment of their lives to remind them that the lie of their inferiority is accepted as truth in the society dominating them.Martin Luther King Jr
