I knew that stealing, killing, lying and the like was wrong because it made me feel bad.
It is socially unacceptable.
Knowing wrong behavior has nothing to do with god.

I was raised Christian myself and I lost touch with Christianity because it felt unnatural as it was presented to me at young age. It was presented as behave or beware which includes fear rather than love. As I grew older I felt more and more there are deep truths in Christianity however it's just a spiritual path like there are many others. I don't believe any path has a right to claim being the only spiritual path.

This is too absolute. We tell KKK members that they're wrong for their beliefs all the time, and never think about whether it is right or wrong for them to believe as they wish.

There is nothing moral about trying to tell someone what to believe or to try and change what they believe.
