Based on the 1965 Vatican 2 document:
THE RELATION OF THE CHURCH TO NON-CHRISTIAN RELIGIONS
NOSTRA AETATE - 5
whole document has only 5 articles.
This 5th and final article speaks about the whole human family:
"We cannot truly call on God, the Father of all, if we refuse to treat in a brotherly way any person, created as they are in the image of God. Our relation to God and our relation to other people are so linked together that Scripture says: "He who does not love, does not know God"
No foundation therefore remains for any theory or practice that leads to discrimination between person and person or people and people, so far as their human dignity and the rights flowing from it are concerned.
The Church reproves, as foreign to the mind of Christ, any discrimination against people or harassment of them because of their race, color, condition of life, or religion."
Jesus, please remove discrimination from my heart
