Day #184: Nostra Aetate 5

Today we finish the Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions.

The document closes with the reassertion that the dignity of the human person and Christian teaching neccessitates treating all with respect:

“The Church reproves, as foreign to the mind of Christ, any discrimination against men or harassment of them because of their race, color, condition of life, or religion.”

Here are the Scripture citations:

1 John 4:8

1 Peter 2:12

And the footnotes:

14. Cf. Rom. 12:18

15. Cf. Matt. 5:45
