Exception to the Golden Rule

Reported by Eleanor - July 16, 2004 -

In a discussion of gay marriage on Now (PBS, 9:40 p.m.) between Bill Moyers and Cal Thomas, a contributor to Fox News, religion was the basis for the conversation about marriage. When Moyers cited the Golden Rule of "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" as the Christian view of gay marriage, Thomas replied that "you can't rip it out of context."

Comment: Huh? I thought that was the universal rule that applies to everything reqardless of context.
