Much of the research tells us that the biggest problems faced by persons with disabilities are societal attitudes. People will sometimes say that “The way I am treated because I have an impairment is often worse than the impairment!” This once again is all about immature attitudes, and the degree to which it occurs in the church reflects a lack of maturity in loving one’s neighbor.
