Tom Cohen asked:

In what ways could one teach this (and the previous sugiya where the phrase 'Bushah Imchem' is used) text which would underscore a humanistic view of the non-Jew?

The Kollel replies:

The Me'iri says explicitly that the Gemara is referring only to groups of non-Jews from idol-worshipping sects. People belonging to such sects often practiced human sacrifice and other sadistic practices which were truly a disgrace to humanity.
