  • “You can safely assume that you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” Anne Lamott

    The nexus between religion and culture is often overlooked- leading to false assumptions, deeply held misconceptions, and, at times, perilously entrenched hatred and prejudices.

    The reality that human beings have a proclivity to make distinctions between human beings that result in creating “the other” is causal to historical outbreaks of violence between tribes, societies, nations, and states. A countering reality put forth through Out of the Box International(®) is that when people learn about “others” there is a reduction in the tendency to foster generalizations, prejudices, and rationalizations for hatred, violence, or human rights abuses. Studying different religions is essential for today’s world and widens one’s perspective. At Out of the Box International(®) your world will open up while you learn about other religions and cultures.
