Morality needs some absolutes
Re: ‘Don’t need religion to be good’ (Metro, June 20)
Letter writer Craig G. Shoemake dogmatically dismisses religion and doctrinairely asserts the existence of “many excellent reasons … for behaving morally, doing good to others and demonstrating compassion” while offering not one by way of example.
Without a divinely rooted source of objective morality to which to conform ourselves, Shoemake’s secular reasons can only ever be man-made, personal, subjective, improvised and relativistic at best, not to mention non-binding.
