The danger of Us v. Them

In my last post I demonized Christians a bit. I want to thank my friend and developing Zen philosopher, Jody, for pointing it out.
 
I succumbed to a dangerous and oh so human deviation from the Middle Way: dualistic thought.
 
There are no Christians, Buddhists, Muslims or Jews. There are only us. There are no them, even if there are.
 
Dualistic thought is the cause of all strife and disagreements. It's hard to stay angry with yourself for very long.
