Affirming a Theology of the Other with Tom Maiello. The vilification of “The Other” is commonplace in our society. Statements such as “not in my neighborhood,” “things would be better if those people weren't around” and “I will never accept them” come from the darkest part of our collective consciousness. Practicing Christians are called not to barely acknowledge others but to love them. This is a tall order even for the best of us. In the longest conversation Jesus has in the Gospels, a model of “The Other” is given to us making it clear that the good news is indeed for everyone even those that don't look like us, pray like us, vote like us or are our enemies.
