84. Morality is all about value judgements

Phelps can attack me because my reasoning is different to his and you can criticise me because I think my chosen deity opposes prejudice and discrimination (although, as an experiential faith, mine is based on personal gnosis rather than revelation) but let's be honest here, there is no scientific reason to oppose Phelps because science doesn't make value judgements at all. Presuming you're an atheist, you base your morality on compassion and human empathy. So why the fuss when I say that my chosen deity encourages me to base my morality on the same thing?
