The Golden Rule of Major Religions

A thought provoking extract from Tony Benn's Letters to My Grandchildren:
  • Christianity - we are all brothers and sisters and should love one another as neighbours
  • Judaism - what is hateful to you do not to your fellow men
  • Islam - no one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself
  • Buddhism - hurt not others in ways that you yourself would not find hurtful
