Comments: I too freqeuntly experience exclusion and prejudice from well meaning people. I would like to live in a world where disability and other minority status is not only catered for but valued. Where would we be without diversity?

In particular I would like to see this happen within religious organisations. If you teach compassion it is *wrong* to practice exclusion.
