It's not about morality

The question is if it violates the rights of another person. Child abuse does. Therefore, it is bad. Murder does, and it's bad. You don't have to bring religion into the equation at all. If something you do violates the rights of another person, you have done something bad. I'm not a religious in the traditional sense, but I'm tired of hearing everyone using their disdain for religion to justify everything they want to do. Want to steal something? Well, that's only bad if you look at it from a religious perspective, right? Wrong! If it's mine, and you take it, you are violating my right to keep my property. I don't need the bible to tell me I have a right to be mad about it, and not being religious doesn't give anyone the excuse to go around doing whatever he wants to do.
