“Persecution comes in many forms: ridicule, harassment, bullying, exclusion, and isolation, or hatred toward another. We must guard against bigotry that raises its ugly voice toward those who hold different opinions. Bigotry manifests itself, in part, in unwillingness to grant equal freedom of expression. Everyone, including people of religion, has the right to express his or her opinions in the public square. But no one has a license to be hateful toward others as those opinions are expressed.

“Church history gives ample evidence of our members being treated with hatred and bigotry. How ironically sad it would be if we were to treat others as we have been treated. The Savior taught, ‘Whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, do ye even so to them.’ For us to ask for respect, we must be respectful.” —Dale G. Renlund
