My friend Kulsum linked to this in her Facebook. I think it's worth passing along.

Tolerance is needed

The more people see and know about people of other faiths, the better. Last night, National Geography had an episode about polygamists in Paradise, British Columbia. The group allowed the film makers incredible access to their community perhaps for selfish PR reasons, since they want to distance themselves from their ex-leader Jeffs and his practices and the Canadian government has begun prosecution proceedings of their leader for polygamy. The documentary was quite sympathetic to the families in this community, they were thoughtful, reflective and charitable, even more than one might expect from them being mostly a product of one man. They opened their doors to let strangers see them in the raw; they were not afraid and by being so, they did a great deal to dispel fears of them. Sunshine kills all molds.
