As an Interfaith blog I though it would be nice to share something I found. The Golden Rule and variations of it can be seen in countless religions. I think this is a great example of how we're not as different as we might seem. We all have a couple of the same core values and should use these beliefs to work together and get along.
The list below is from http://www.religioustolerance.org/reciproc2.htm. A longer list with religions like Native American Spirituality and Wicca as well as philosophers such as Plato and Kant and ethical systems such as Humanism can be found here.

|Brahmanism: "This is the sum of Dharma [duty]: Do naught unto others which would cause you pain if done to you". Mahabharata, 5:1517 "|
|Islam: "None of you [truly] believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself." Number 13 of Imam "Al-Nawawi's Forty Hadiths." |
