Bill Maher on Religon

Very interesting Debate on religion on the Bill Maher show. Basically going on about fanaticism in religion. Thing with many people on the Christian right and most other religion's ignore is the main part of their faith.
  • "Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am the lord." — Torah Leviticus 19:18
  • "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." — Jesus (c. 5 B.C.E. - C.E. 32 ) in the Gospels, Matthew 7:12, Matthew 22:39, Luke 6:31, Luke 10:27
  • "When an alien lives with you in your land, do not mistreat him. The alien living with you must be treated as one of your native-born. Love him as yourself, for you were aliens in Egypt. I am the lord your God." — Torah Leviticus 19:33-34
  • "This is the sum of duty; do naught unto others what you would not have them do unto you." — Mahabharata (5:15:17) (c. 500 B.C.E.)
  • "What you do not wish upon yourself, extend not to others." — Confucius (ca. 551 - 479 B.C.E.)
  • "What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow man." — Hillel (ca. 50 B.C.E. - C.E. 10)
  • "None of you truly believes until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself." — Muhammad (c. C.E. 571 - 632), Hadith 13 of al-Nawawi's Forty Hadith.
After that nothing else, be it homosexuality, the holy land, Jihad matters. When someone crosses that line they are no longer acting for their religion they are acting for themselves.
