For centuries, there has been a conflict between what is called moral objectivism and moral relativism.
On one hand, moral objectivism is the view that some system of ethics applies to everyone, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender or creed.
On the other, moral relativism holds that there can be differences in moral judgments across different peoples and their own particular cultures.
