I think we can all agree with that.

I've been thinking about the nature of religion, and I think that I would be
more inclined to join a religion if it DIDN'T tell me how to behave.

Maybe someone else can tell you what Virus thinks of those issues, but I
suspect it does not try to enforce any particular ethics system.
