I don't think it is valid to compare Frydaze's moral preference (or any human, not picking on her) with God. It is not just any authority. It is the holy, just, loving, and perfectly good Creator of the universe. God's commands for us are not merely preferences, but flow out of his good nature. His knowledge allows him to craft commands for us to maximize our happiness. Interesting to me, Frydaze comes up with a eerily similar set of precepts to what God's commands are.

It's very valid. Your moral preference is what you think god wants and is just as individually centric as frydaze's. Hence why you, Norm, Josh, Osama Bin Laden, Fred Phelps, Jim Jones, Joseph Smith, Zvi Yehuda Kook, Muhammad, Jesus, Oral Roberts, Constantine the Great, and I'll stop there because I'll have to list virtually everyone who is alive today or has ever lived that believed/s in s creator god, all have slightly different to dramatically different understandings of how god wants us to behave.
