Religion and Morality seeks to answer two fundamental questions regarding the relation between religion and morality. The first is the puzzle posed by Socrates, the so-called 'Euthyphro dilemma', which asks: is morality valuable by virtue of its intrinsic importance and worth, or is morality valuable because, and only because, God approves it and commands us to follow its dictates?/5(3).

Religion and morality are not synonymous. Morality does not necessarily depend upon religion, though for some, this is "an almost automatic assumption." According to The Westminster Dictionary of Christian Ethics, religion and morality "are to be defined differently and have no definitional connections with each other.

Burke claimed that "Moral Duties are included in Religion, and enforced by it". Burke's identification of religion as the source of morality is a reoccurring theme throughout his work.

M oreover, religious ideals of moral behavior are often limited to group members and might even be accompanied by outright hatred against other groups.
