I notest a great tweet by James White today.
I see tomorrow is “Zero Discrimination Day.” Too bad no one learns Latin anymore. discriminare simply means “to make distinctions.”

Words so easily become weaponised against thought. The Orwellian “Newspeak” that we a constantly being bombarded with today has become a tool to stop discussion and free thought.
I was told a little while ago, that I must not judge anyone. Well, there is a sense in which that is true. The final judgement is for God and him alone. But that was not what he meant.
What he was telling not to do was to way someone’s words and to see if what they were saying was true or not. If we do not do this how can we, try the spirits?
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)
Do not be bullied into not discriminating. At times discrimination is a very good thing. If you are offered some dodgy business or some gone off seafood, be discriminating. You should do the same in all areas of your life.
