You do realize that morality is purely subjective, right?

Moral relativism is inherently self-contradictory and therefore false. If everything is "moral," then nothing is moral. If everyone's moral code is equally valid, then no behavior can be condemned as "immoral."

And that means that the serial killer, the terrorist, the rapist, and the pedophile are just as "moral" as you are.

If you disagree, then you're claiming "that your own sense of morality is somehow absolute and universal." Some might call that "a bit pretentious."

Can someone take the product of your labor at a price less than you're willing to sell it? Would that not be theft (or slavery)? Is stealing from you "moral"?
 
"The Christian religion, when ... brought to the original purity and simplicity of it's benevolent institutor, is a religion of all others most friendly to liberty, science, and the freest expansion of the human mind."

Thomas Jefferson, 1801
