Everyone can get an ‘A’ in morality class
Re: ‘Morality needs some absolutes’ (Metro, June 24)
Though I am an atheist, I don’t reject religion; I recognize it has much to teach and I am open to those lessons.
However, to letter writer Gilbert Colon I would point out that to an atheist, his “objective, divinely inspired” morality is just as non-binding as any.
The difference is, while he anticipates an eternal reward, I expect no reward for treating others with kindness and respect.
I respect any path that leads to goodness, but must question any group that grades goodness on a curve based on belief in a particular deity.
