We are called to be tolerant of one another BUT domestic violence should never be tolerated. People who are in these situations tend to believe that they deserve it, or that they aren't worthy of a normal, healthy relationship, that somehow they are the cause of the abuse they receive. If you know of anyone who is in the midst of such abuse, what will you do?
Call the police?
Call the family?
We cannot continue to condone or turn a deaf ear to those who are victims. We are "called" to love and protect one another.
