What would Rumi do?



Dear Editor:

“Spiritual arrogance is the ugliest of all things.”

— Rumi

I believe if Jelaluddin Rumi were alive today that he would have some words to say to people who use their religion as a reason (or excuse) to express hate for anyone who was different.

Many of us are different. Some of us are from a different country, some of us are of a different race, some of us are liberal, some of us are conservative, some of us are men, some of us are women, some of us are gay, some of us are straight, some of us are poor, some of us are rich, but I believe that all of us are worthy of respect, even those who are blinded by their hate and fear.
