A society of distinction

We live in a society of distinction. We distinguish things and people in ways no longer visible to us. We distinguish black from white from brown from yellow. We distinguish male from female, high income from low income, safe neighborhoods from poor ones, expensive cars from old beaters, those who fail to signal (rude) and those who drive too slowly (inconsiderate) from ourselves (kind, gentle and caring). If we were to invite them all to a party and mix them together, we would be seen as crazy or even subversive. Yet this is the story Jesus told.
