If God exists, then there are universal moral obligations, in that HE obligates all humans to follow them.
---------
If God is not obligated to follow them, they are not universal. All sentient beings would have to be obligated to follow them in order for them to be universal.


Would you say that having human DNA is universal to humans, but not to all possbile sentient beings?

Then there are universals that only apply to humans. In this category are God's commands.
