Everyone is prejudiced to a certain degree. I shall exclude prejudice based upon
protected class status such as age, race/color, ethnic background, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, and/or disability. That is egregiously wrong!

What I mean is like this: I've had numerous very bad experiences with members of a particular religious group; I don't dislike or avoid members of that group, but I -am- extremely cautious when I meet new ones.
