I've been working on a piece that will hopefully dispel the numerous ideas that we are sooooo different, and that those differences are not to be celebrated, but destroyed.
For example:

The Golden Rule's Universality
BAHA'I
"Blessed are those who prefer others before themselves."
-- Baha'u'llah, Tablets of Baha'u'llah, 71

BUDDHISM
"Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful."
-- Udana-Varga, 5:18

CHRISTIANITY
"Always treat others as you would like them to treat you."
-- Jesus, Matthew 7:12

CONFUCIANISM
"Do not unto others what you would not have them do unto you."
-- Analects 15:23

HINDUISM
"This is the sum of all duty: do not do to others what would cause pain if done to you."
-- Mahabharata 5:1517

ISLAM
"No one of you is a believer until you desire for another that which you desire for yourself"
-- Sunnah

JAINISM
"In happiness and suffering, in joy and grief, regard all creatures as you would regard your own self."
-- Lord Mahavir 24th Tirthankara

JUDAISM
"What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor, That is the entire Torah; all the rest is commentary."
-- Talmud, Shabbat 31a

NATIVE AMERICAN
"Respect for all life is the foundation"
-- The Great Law of Peace

SIKHISM
"Be not estranged from another for God dwells in every heart."
-- Sri Guru Granth Sahib

ZOROASTRIANISM
"Human nature is good only when it does not do unto another whatever is no good for its own self."
-- Dadistan-i-Dinik, 94:5

WICCAN
"Everything you do, whether positive or negative, is returned to you threefold."

See? We aren't that different after all.
