I Feel Your Pain, Or Not

Interesting article on empathy.

I think a lot of what religion teaches us can be tied to developing and exercising empathy (do unto others, we're all God's children that kind of stuff).  That's why I get so frustrated with the "us and them" mentality of so many religious people that I am exposed to (I'm not making a comment on all religious people, I couldn't fairly do that).

  1. It seems the us vs them mentality exists far beyond religion.

    Though I had to delete this comment on a friends facebook page, I laugh every time I think this. God hates God fearing people, hence why the south is flooding. ;)
