Nick So, in essence, the only legitimate way to measure of morality of a society is by using the religion or religious-like doctrines, eg humanism that the society itself professes? How can someone possibly judge morality unless they are based on the same morality system.
One society will typically declare an other societies morality as unmoral only because it may go against their morals. So, only members of the society can actually declare a society as moral or immoral, since people who are not part of that society do not have enough perspective to determine a moral stance?
Since there will always be minor differences: Can this same gauge be used for societies? How can I apply this metric to societies that are undeniably non-Christian?
Perhaps the only societies where this can be used is those where by definition those societies genuinely use the Bible as their moral compass, for example in a monastery. You can of course look beyond that into the zeitgeist of the population, but that is much harder to measure accurately.
I know very many Christians who have absolutely no issue with homosexuality, and know of others that are fire-brand against homosexuality.

What’s more, the theory leads us to expect that, because there are many types of cooperation, there will be many types of morality. c. the notion that cost-benefit analysis is the most relative and therefore the fairest tool of analysis to use in making ethical decisions.
that without any further evaluation, the ultimate judgment of the correctness of an action rests with a central authority. Ethics is a systematic and critical analysis of morality, of the moral factors that guide human conduct in a particular society or practice. As fisheries represent an interaction between humans and the aquatic ecosystem, fisheries ethics deals with the values, rules, duties and virtues of relevance to both human and ecosystem well-being.
Morality (from Latin: moralis, lit. 'manner, character, proper behavior') is the differentiation of intentions, decisions and actions between those that are distinguished as proper and those that are improper.
