Anthony weston a practical companion to ethics 2005.pdf

  In the reading for Module 1 the text talks about the relation between ethics and religion.  While some concede that many people get their moral views from religion, people also claim that in philosophy, ethics does not necessarily require a religious backing.  How does the text support this claim?  What is your view?  Do you think it is possible to be virtuous without religion?  Why or why not?  Remember, initial posts are to be at least 600 words and should be submitted directly into the forum
