From the Paper:"In Matthew 7:12, Jesus famously promotes the Golden Rule, saying, "In everything do to others as you would have them do to you." The Golden Rule defines morality as just this: one should treat others as one wishes to be treated. Because the Golden Rule purports to summarize the whole of morality, a person acts morally if and only if he treats others the way he wants to be treated. By its nature as a moral theory, The Golden Rule must intend to yield the good, and is therefore invalid insofar as its dictums do not, in fact, yield the good. "
