Morals without Religion

I remember it became very popular for people to say, "You don't have to be religious to be moral" and I agreed. I was particularly religious. I had gone to church a handful of times since my parents had split when I was a baby. I didn't follow any doctrine or worship at any specific alter. I just knew what was right and what was wrong. I knew it was wrong to lie, cheat, steal, kill.. I knew it was wrong to be disrespectful to my dad or my grams. I knew that it wouldn't do me any good to be envious of those with more or to be spiteful to those with less. I knew the Golden Rule was Golden not because some God told me so, but because it made sense and it felt right.
