In his letter to the Galatians, Paul of Tarsus wrote, “There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus” (Gal. 3:28). This verse is comparable to the anti-harassment and non-discrimination policies were are accustomed to hearing in our time.Read More
