Morality derives from compassion (Blogathon 46/49)

Saw this on facebook.  Loved it.

When I ask a fundamentalist, "Would you kill me if god told you to?" they always dodge the question.  It puts their beliefs face-to-face with the morality most humans have within their core.  They're forced into the uncomfortable position to either say they would kill me if they believed god told them to, which is sociopathic ehavior, or to admit that they have a sense of morality independent of religion.

This is post 46 of 49 for Blogathon.

Total donors is at 255 (if we hit 300 by 7am tomorrow, even if those donations are just the $5 minimum, 20 campers at Camp Quest Ohio will get to pie Michaelyn or JT in the face)! There will be pictures. That link also has some other ideas for pledging for Blogathon. :)

You can still donate to the SSA by supporting other blogathoners, art contributors, personal fundraising pages or through a direct donation to the SSA! SSA Week lasts through June 17th. Spread the word!
