The slaughter of 49 people in Orlando is yet another example of people victimized by blind obedience to ancient rules, rules written centuries ago that have no basis in human morality. This is what happens when people are taught what to think morally instead of how to think morally.
True human morality simply consists of those actions that reduce emotional and physical suffering, crossing all lines of age, status, occupation, wealth, gender, culture and even religions themselves. We recognize human suffering through our own personal experiences, as well as those passed onto us from history. Major societal advances in morality have occurred when individuals decided to disobey ancient rules and instead listen to their human morality, with examples being the abolition of slavery, rights for women and most recently same-sex marriage.
Until we realize and embrace what human morality truly is, we will continue to endure senseless suffering and violence due to the obedience to primitive religious rules.
