Coberst- May I suggest that what you learned as Sunday school, or school generally, as 'morals' were in fact a Code of Conduct. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, providing it does not become a rigid code which is imposed on others who may not share the certainty of that dogma, and not be committed to its truth.

Mostly such codes of conduct embody "The Golden Rule"-- Treat other people as you would like them to treat you. This is an imperative recognised world-wide.

Is the true, correct moral imperative peculiar only to certain religions or nations? I don't think so.

Are there certain codes of conduct within religions or nations which others find immoral or distasteful? Certainly there are.

I think a common morality exists-- we need to allow it to show itself.
