CONTEMPT FOR ANOTHER HUMAN BEING IS THE RESULT OF FEAR GROUNDED IN IGNORANCE . . .

There has never been a prophet, saint, sage, messiah or world religious leader who has ever taught hatred as part of his or  
her message. Embrace Foundation believes that the contempt for another human being, hatred and discrimination based in  
difference of belief and culture, is the result of fear grounded in ignorance.

The power of the media to educate and change attitudes is indeed obvious in this day and age and the ability of forward  
looking leaders of all religions to utilize this medium in a productive, unified way not only requires considerable funding but  
continual onslaughts of unbiased information and education to the world public, via newspapers, magazines, public service  
announcements on radio and television, Ad Council Advertising in buses and subways and more ingenious methods in  
countries where the majority of the people are illiterate.

THE OBJECTIVE IS TO CREATE BETTER UNDERSTANDING ...
THROUGH EXPOSURE & EDUCATION

Secular attempts by religious organizations in the effort to expose injustices usually have little affect on the general public,  
whether it is the Irish Catholics denouncing the discrimination of their Protestant counterparts or a Jewish organization  
talking about the evils of anti-semitism. Both groups may raise more money from their own people, but nothing has really  
effectively changed the problem.

Moreover, in many religions, the divergence between the sects is more bitter, than any differences they have with people of  
a different faith altogether. Embrace offers one of the few opportunities for those who follow the essential teaching of a  
world religious leader, prophet, saint, or messiah to find a common meeting ground.

EMBRACE FOUNDATION IS SUPPORTED BY LEADERS REPRESENTING RELIGIONS AROUND THE WORLD

It is with the support of scholars and religious leaders around the world that Embrace was founded in 1982. The Embrace  
International Advisory & Lecture Board in 1985, sponsored the International Press Conference For Religious Peace at the  
U.N. Church Center.

In a show of solidarity, representatives all the world religions spoke out in opposition to military and political leaders who use  
the name of religion to sanctify themselves and to wage war. They called for the exercise of responsibility by the world  
press in reporting stories where hostilities are occurring between people of different religions or cultures. Too often, the  
media irresponsibly cites religious rather than political or economic interests as the reason for fighting taking place  
around the world. Sensationalistic and simplistic reporting more often than not, exploits a situation fanning the flames of  
anger and intolerance.

THERE IS NO IMMUNITY FROM ORGANIZED HATRED EXCEPT TO BROADEN PEOPLE'S MINDS SO THEY  
CAN'T BE INDOCTRINATED

Embrace Foundation has produced 18 "Great Visions" educational television shows, where the viewer can witness first  
time events, such as a dialogue between a Rabbi and a Buddhist monk, a discussion between Christian and Islamic  
scholars . . . Visits by Hindu Swamis, Sikhs, Jains, Sufis..

POLITICS & RELIGION

Embrace Foundation is strictly a non-political organization.

HUMANITY IS FUNDAMENTALLY THE SAME ANYWHERE YOU GO IN THE WORLD

Individuals left to their own devices, generally manage to get along with one another. People to people, humanity is  
fundamentally the same anywhere you go in the world. Everyone wants to have good health, an appropriate shelter, enough  
food, love, freedom to believe in a philosophy or religion as he or she chooses and to live life in peace. To be happy is the  
basic goal of all humankind.

Whether people pray to God, Yahweh, call out to Allah, meditate for Buddha-Consciousness, plea to Vishnu and so on, it is  
all the same. The wishes, sorrows, hopes, fears of people everywhere have the same bond of humanity.
