72. It Depends On Whose Morals You Consider
If I look at fundies morals, (do what I say not what I do, kill people but not fetuses, attack countries that didn't attack you, harrass and even condone attacks against people based on sexual orientation, and on and on. These people have their own code of morals, it isn't mine, and I doubt it is a supreme being's morals either)

My liberal and Christian morals don't follow these morals either.

I've known people that had no formal religious views who had what I consider good morals, but I'm sure they had bad or no morals to the fundie crowd.

Morals are not universal, they are culturally defined.

There are some that are common, but essentially they are specific to the culture.

I don't believe in fundie morals, but they have morals, just not ones that conform to what I believe.
