“there is not one person in a thousand who does not hold to some kind of superstition, and those most given to ridiculing the belief in witchcraft of past ages, believe in omens, prognostics, dreams and revelations. They carry a rabbit’s foot or buckeye, keep a horse shoe over or under the door, see spectres stalking around a table of thirteen, or could not be induced to start a journey or begin any work on Friday, and since people of the present day cannot explain the phenomena in spiritual manifestations, mind reading, electric wonders, etc., their ancestors may be excused for believing in witchcraft, inasmuch as they accepted the Bible for the guidance of their faith and believed all it says on this subject, as they did that pertaining to the soul’s salvation, and sought to put away witchcraft, that Christianity might prevail.”

“The golden rule is not a rule of logic. It is not a form of logical reasoning, but rather it determines the logic of value selection, something that does not usually fall under the purview of traditional logic.”
Rami M. Shapiro, The Golden Rule and the Games People Play: The Ultimate Strategy for a Meaning-Filled Life

“When we want to love our neighbor, we cite the Golden Rule in support of doing so. When we want to bomb our neighbor, we ignore or even boo the Golden Rule and find some other divine command to justify our bombing.”

“Or take the case of Ron Paul during the 2012 presidential primary. During a debate on American foreign policy, Congressman Paul said, “If another country does to us what we do to others, we’re not going to like it very much.

“It is possible to climb life’s mountain from any side, but when the top is reached the trails converge. At base, in the foothills of theology, ritual, and organizational structure, the religions are distinct.... But beyond these differences, the same goal beckons.”
Rami M. Shapiro, The Golden Rule and the Games People Play: The Ultimate Strategy for a Meaning-Filled Life
