  • YES. There is a version of it in every religion. However, people see what they want. So, because somewhere in their doctrine it dnounces another religion, they believe they have to stamp it out. Of course, alot believe that theirs is the only "true" religion, so...

  • Wow, outstandinglove! That was really profound and mellowed me out. It made me think and reaffirm the belief that I have. We are all so equal but choose to pretend we are different.

  • Yes, all religions present in the world today are all based on the teaching of "do no harm", "Do un to others" or "Karma" and in each case the beliefs are seen as unequial or wrong by others, even through it's the same damn thing... Makes no freakin scense

  • I prefer "do unto others as they do unto you", UNTIL they stop doing the same. Then it's "do unto others AS THEY do unto you".

  • Yes, most religions have a version of the Golden Rule. And most religions do teach love and compassion. We're really not as different as everyone seems to think.
