I further claim that this explains our experience of the world, and specifically morality, better than the subjective view. It is the only way to make sense of the claim "raping little girls is wrong". It's wrong because ultimately it violates the unchanging, good nature of God.
You can even leave God out of the picture for a moment. Raping little girls is wrong because it harms another person, and no good can come from it. Common sense tells you it's wrong.

In short, it violates natural law.
