The purpose of the Golden Rule Steve Douglas

The quote comes from the post “How Golden is the Golden Rule?” on Steve Douglas’ blog Undeception. As was pointed out in discussion here previously, a rigidly literalistic adherence to the Golden Rule might lead one to inflict one’s own preferences and desires on others. But clearly the point of the Golden Rule is about empathy.

Do you agree that it is a hallmark of the teaching of Jesus, and thus should be a hallmark of the Christian faith?
