Unity In Diversity

Lamin Sanneh says that “disagreement is not a barrier to dialogue. On  the contrary, it is a test of the willingness to presume on each other’s goodwill and to covet the best for each other. To be charitable is to be deserving of charity oneself.  Without difference dialogue would be moot. If you feel the need to conceal what you believe for fear of difference, then dialogue becomes just a show, and agreement an illusion. Indeed agreement by concealment is intolerance by another name, if truth be told.”
