Claiming exclusivity to moral principles is something that people do independently of their religion. The religion just provides the morals that they claim to be absolute. Atheists, Buddhists, Muslims, Hebrews...all schools of moral thought have people who cannot see that theirs is a relative view.

Simply put, morons are everywhere, you just happen to react to the Christian morons because you're probably around more of them than the other kind of moral-absolutist morons.

If "The religion just provides the morals that they claim to be absolute," how is it that "Claiming exclusivity to moral principles is something that people do independently of their religion" ?
