Q&A: What would you regard as immoral?

Looking down upon people on the basis of their caste or skin color, religion or nationality; hurting physically or emotionally fellow humans; ignoring the anguish of the utterly helpless; not caring at all for the less fortunate in one’s community, nation, or the world; aggrandizing oneself at the expense of others; ridiculing the deeply-held non-hurting religious beliefs of others; holding atheists,homosexuals and others with non-standard sexual orientations in contempt: These are among the things that I would regard as iimmoral. We humans are all capable of these.

What is sad and shocking is that most, perhaps all these are avoidable; often  resulting  from misguided and warped values and world-views.
