In Diversity is Strength

I don’t often find myself quoting the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but at yesterday’s Capitol Rotunda presentation of the Congressional Gold Medal to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the president, referring specifically to the rich diversity in American religious life, stated: “This diversity is not a source of instability — it’s a source of strength.”

One can only hope that the president would recognize the value of diversity not only in the sphere of religion, but in other areas of human life as well.
