Can you step away for just a moment from religion
You're not really letting me.
Do you have any objection to things like that just because they happen to be written in the book you consider a myth?
Yes I do. Because "things like that" are also a lot of garbage concerning a ficticious entity. If the sentence had been purely "love thy neighbor - next chapter", I would be fine with it. All the dogma surrounding it is what is causing us problems in the first place.
I think the answer that Jesus gave in Luke 10:27 concerning human behavior is much better, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself."
That is what you said (after having invoked both Hitler and Mohammed in the same post). My fundamental problem with this is wanting to be guided by a static text rather than interaction with your fellow humans. Problems arise when you choose to do that, people start believing that "the next life" is better, and waste the one they have here. What the sentence is actually saying is "As long as your ruling priesthood does not want you to do anything else, you can be good to your neighbor", and that is a major gaping loophole - before you know it you have a crusade on your hands. Fresh examples abound in current news.
