‘Our world still needs to learn that the reason every person and every kind of person must be seen with equal respect is not that their culture is equally healthy, or that they have earned equal treatment, but that equal dignity is ascribed by virtue of a divine bias in favor of the Other’.

– The not-exactly-kosher-these-days John Howard Yoder, ‘Firstfruits: The Paradigmatic Public Role of God’s People’, in For the Nations: Essays Evangelical and Public (Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1997), 30.
