That's an interesting question you pose in your title.  My answer to that question is YES!

"Be perfectly fair in your decisions and impartial in your judgements.  Hear the cases of those who are poor as well as those who are rich." 

Deuteronomy 1:16-17 NLT

Jane
If morality speaks of a system of behavior in regards to standards of right or wrong behavior then I don’t think one can consider themselves moral if they don’t also exercise and extend kindness. Consider the popular philosophy "I'm not hurting anyone but myself," frequently used to excuse bad personal choices. Bad personal choices can and do hurt others. Unkindness or even unconscious arrogance is a choice.

Oops, that should be 'than'.

I don't think much of a person when they aren't kind.
I think a person's true character is shown through his treatment of others, particulaly those who are less fortunate that he.
