Morality is inherently subjective. Every religion and every version of morality likes to think it is the only one. It isn't. There are billions of people in this world and therefore millions of ways of looking at the world. That's what I find so fascinating about studying religion, actually.

My religion and its teachings over the years differs greatly from Norm's idea of "natural law," but that makes me no less a moral person than him. We believe in different things. Some of what he believes I think is immoral, and I am sure he would say the same of me.

Viva La Difference!
