Then you are not living by the Golden Rule, which is the main or first rule of most religions.
Insert gays and women harmed by homophobic and misogynous religions to this quote. You should get an idea of what you should be doing with the homophobic and misogynous mainstream religions if you live by the golden rule.
Please get back to me with your conclusion.
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Im not going to waste my time debating religions with you. I never even claimed any religion anyway. But you do realize religion is a man made institution?
God doesnt need you, me or any human acknowledgement. You can twist religion any which way you want but that doesnt mean anything. Once I understood the separation God and religions, things became much more clear and I quit wasting time pointing out every little bullshit discrepancy I found in man made religion.
Also, what does any of what I said have to do with the "golden rule"? Treating others as you wish to be treated?
