Once again as I have stated... morality is often misused. Religious beliefs and moral beliefs are two different normative systems. Morals are actually based on reason, while religious norms are based on a relationship with a diety. People who claim that "morality" and "religion" are necessarily related are ignorant about what constitutes the two normative systems. There are some areas where the two systems overlap, but they do not entirely coincide. Morals are as far from religion as they both are from laws. Laws are another type of normative system.
