Their is Non! Unless the church dictates what is and what is not moral than they can tell you whatever they do is moral and no matter what your not moral.

Morality is in your DNA and learned as well, A long time ago many thought, spinning it with dogma Religious will give them power over the beaver's a long time ago and it did. There is really only on religion out there that actively killing in the name of god that Islam. I do like how the question was framed. I would not fall for that, one.

No most social animals fallow a code of Morality. Its instinctual. (its a survival mechanism.)

There is one thing about morality even when you know it is wrong and you do it anyway, lack of control over one self or just twisted. I have had many bad contacts with these type people. I have a much stronger moral and ethical code than my Parents had. I will say experance has a great deal to do with it as well. The biggest reason not to have childern fear of being like my parrents and understanding that I was not all there.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I was in my earl thirties when one acquaintance came by to visit some people I rented an apartment from, I decided to repair a drainage ditch for them they were in ill health. This guy Germany Shepard fall in to the ditch The dog is very old and half bind and has arthritis.This so called man would not jump Two and Half feet down to get his dog out he was afraid of the dog biting him. I knew the dog would try to bite me but I had to help the dog out. I got it it did try to bight me.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------[blue] After I got the dog out I turned around and grab this guy hand twisted behind his back and drop him to his knees. I started to shove him into the dog and asked what had he done to be afraid of his own dog. I went off on him by point out the dogs nails need to be cut it's fur needed cleaning and brushed out. This sad peace of XXXX was almost in tears. Yea my code is way off on stuff like that it like a blind rage with me. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------You can get messed up I went way over the top on him. This is a bad habit for me but now my body can't dish it ot as well, in some respect thats a good thing with me. TMI

there are two things that christians can do that others (most) cannot do- love God and love our neighbor- friend or foe.

Why would a non-christian not be able to love his neighbour/friend/foe?
And why would a non-christian theist not be able to love his/her god?

Pray beneficently and maliciously for everything on this planet.

I'm assuming moral means an act that can be judged as good or bad. Also, I'm going to assume that praying is an act that can be judged depending on the prayer. Since prayer is at least dependent in the belief of a God (gods work too), then praying can be viewed as a moral act that only religious believers can do.

1. Stop judging people based on their beliefs? Last I check for all religion, only God can judge one's sin and character.

2. Act superior because of their beliefs.

3. Look openly at scientific facts and economic conditions. The issue of contraceptives, planned parenthood for the poor. Evolution vs Creationism.

4. Say "Oh God Spoke to me .. Or in my dreams God told me .... or I believe God is ... " You are not God. What do you know? it doesn't matter if you studied your religious book for a thousand years.

5. Think the world will end. Armageddon.

6. Burn stuff (Quran), issues fatwas for people's death, etc, etc

7. Say that its ok to sacrifice yourself (suicide)

If you understood the Tea party is about tax's, there many independent, libertarians plus republicans and even some democrats that want the tax code change. The fair tax movement is what started the Tea Party, it has been demonized by the press as only a conservative movement. There may be some religious nut jobs trying to take credit or just people try to discredit the movement. But about taxes and the federal Government out of control spending. If we do nothing to change the tax code we will tank and bring many down with us.Then there will be a real reason to hate U.S but who cares?.

I once knew briefly a piece of human shit with a tattoo reading "Only God can judge me." I wanted to boil his eyes in his skull with his own brain juices.
