    One of the phrases in the Lutheran catechism coauthored by Dietrich Bonhoeffer in the early 1930's. This was just one of a number of reasons the Nazis did not like him.

    I can't disagree but blood's a rather weak argument against racism.

    We are not of "one blood" now - there are distinct differences; A, B, AB, and O not to speak of Rh factors.

    Here in the States we have a mixed bag of blood types.

    In some countries it's more homogeneous.

    I believe all pride is a sin and ethnic pride which leads to prejudice is definitely part of the the sin of pride.

    Some where from 85% to 95% (depending on whom you read and study) of the variety of human distinctions can be found in every single people group.

    What we call race or as I call ethnicity comprises such a small part of the human genome.

    I don't think of it so much as the "blood" that makes us all the same, but the DNA.
