'Golden Rule' Booed By Jesus-Loving GOP Debate Audience

I've written in these pages about the extreme disconnect between the Christian Right and that Jesus fellow they profess to follow.

Nothing, however, could have prepared me for the following segment from the Sunday night GOP debate in South Carolina, in which The Golden Rule was booed.


  1. Smartest moron in America? Or most idiotic genius? That man has so many sound ideas mingled with an extraordinary amount of bat-shit. And for the record, while his intentions regarding other nations makes all the sense in the world, the golden rule is inherently stupid. I certainly don't want Fundamentalists of any variety to treat me as they would have me treat them.

  2. You'd think it would take a complete empathectomy to boo the Golden Rule. I give a bit of its history as well as showing Gingrich's and Paul's opposing worldviews as seen through the unpreachable Bible verses at my blog post: http://biblefunmentionables.wordpress.com/2012/01/19/boo-unto-others/
