For All Those Who Think The Golden Rule is Good-It's a LIE! (Satire)

The golden rule is a lie!! No where in the Bible does it say that you have to follow the golden rule with EVERYONE!

Do unto other as you would have them do unto you does not apply if you think they are sinners, different from you, or if you just don't like 'em!

If someone is a sinner, it is our religious freedom to treat them different, and our christ-like mission to let them know that they're going to hell unless they convert.

If we can make laws to limit their freedom that would be even better!

I mean think about it!

Why should people who disrespect "gods law" deserve to be protected by it?
UPDATE: I didn't think it need to be stated but this is SATIRE and a response to a few other posts as well as one in particular.

The original meaning of the Golden Rule...

From the orthodox Christian perspective, the Golden Rule defined as the words "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" are claimed to be one of the original teachings of Jesus.

This is problematic for at two reasons. First, because Jesus himself never wrote anything down, we are told to accept these words verbatim in a syntax written by someone other than Christ himself. Second, a version which predates the teachings attributed to Jesus was given by the Jewish spiritual and ethical Rabbi, Hillel as "Do not do unto others that which is hateful unto thee."

Thus, when presented in this earlier form, the Golden Rule is no longer an unclear Utopian morality, but rather a common sense rule of conduct that is inherently humane. After all, what is "hateful" to someone is self-evident and can be tested by experience.

But, in the words attributed to Jesus, the Golden Rule becomes about what we want from others, which can lead to using people for personal ends.

This is called prudential (directional) morality, a moral code that obliges us to do things for the betterment of our own souls. If we do good for others, we will be rewarded for doing so.

What about Moses?

"thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself" Leviticus 19:18

The 5 books attributed to Moses are directly quoted many times in the new testament. This verse in particular is quoted at least 7 times.

Matthew 19:19
Matthew 22:39
Mark 12:31
Luke 10:27
Romans 13:9
Galatians 5:14
James 2:8


Hear, O Israel: YHUH our God YHUH one. And thou shalt love YHUH thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Children are impressionable. That is why the bible instructs that perverts be killed, because they cause confusion. Such as yourself, you have a weak, perverted mind and know not any better. You are a victim as well as now the perpetrator. Monkey see; monkey do. As Robert Frost says, way leads unto way. Reconstituter001, I hope this brushes your cortex not just gives you a flash of anger. Either way, good luck
