Sin: Treating People as Things

Leah Libresco talks about the moral wonders of Discworld in “The Little Way of Terry Pratchett.” In these magical stories, sin is essentially treating people as things.

“It’s an insidious sort of error that harms me along with the person I’m rejecting. They’ll be hurt by the way I treat them, but I’m wounded by my self-inflicted blindness. I’ve robbed myself of the chance to see the other person as God does, and to love them in his way.”
