Forgive me if I misinterpret you Mike, but it seems as though you
missed the point...

I was not making reference to the ethical value of the meme, but
rather it's ability to spread. Christianity could state "kill all farm
animals and torture your neighbor continually", and whereas that wouldn't
be "ethically" good, as long as the meme spreads and people follow the
word, it is a "good" meme.
