"This is tricky, indeed. In your premise, you condemn all non-Christian men into a limbo of immorality, at worst, and amorality, at best.
If morality is strictly defined in Christian terms, then nobody other than Christians can be moral. …"
""Some caveats. God is not a religion. This makes a difference. Religion didn't and couldn't create the universe, construct us to have a moral sense, send a Son to save us, etc. So when we ask whether morals…"

"Personally, I think the root of being a manly man is to have pure morals.
