“The ability to respect the outsider is probably the litmus test of true seeing.”
~ Richard Rohr
During this time of tensions, if not outright hostility, between some individuals and groups that they deem as “outsiders” due to differences of race, ethnicity, religion, ideology, gender expression, etc., this quote is especially meaningful. It reminds me to show respect for everyone, even when disagreeing on fact or principle with their viewpoint.

Definitely something that would help society, if each person would take to heart.
