Morality derived from religious doctrine can only be subjective unlike secular humanism which can be based on a more objective form of ethics

It is religion that teaches subjective morality. I have an objective morality that does not square with the concept that genocide is wrong…except when god does it. If there were such things as the mythical beasts we call “gods” then they too would have to be held to the same moral and ethical standards of justice and fairness as the rest of us. If your right and wrong are simply a matter of “god said so” and not something that can be reasoned and deduced then your “morality” is simply a subjective set of rules derived from an egocentric delusional fantasy. My secular humanist morality is derived from a sober objective analysis of the positive and negative consequences of my behavior upon other sentient beings.
