  •  Jesus would say 'nope, ur just being a, ahem mule. (6+ / 0-)

    If you sincerely love god ('with your whole heart and soul' is the rest of the quote btw) and love your neighbor as yourself, you don't need any fine print.

    Its the Golden Rule.  If you're looking for loopholes, you ain't following it.

    •  Some say loopholes; (0+ / 0-)

      others say guidelines.  I'm sure there are plenty of televangelists who sincerely believe they love God (curious lower-casing on your part) and their neighbors as themselves . . . but most of the rest of us know better.  But how?

      Dogs from the street can have all the desirable qualities that one could want from pet dogs. Most adopted stray dogs are usually humble and exceptionally faithful to their owners as if they are grateful for this kindness. -- H.M. Bhumibol Adulyadej

        deliberately confuse it.  Simply look at how they treat others.  If you can't figure it out being in favor of comforting the comfortable and inflicting pain on the suffering, tax breaks for the rich and food, housing, etc. aid cuts for the poor, the list goes on.

        IMO you are being deliberating dense: yes there are a few, relatively minor things people in good faith could disagree on whether they - if they were in the position of the disadvantaged party - honestly would agree to be the disadvantaged one.  But those are the exceptions that prove the rule, and frankly are as a practical matter irrelevant to the question of what constitutes a 'good' or 'moral' or whatever life.
