Atheism is often criticized for not being able to provide an “objective foundation for morality”. One form of this criticism is a relentless repetition of David Hume’s Is/Ought Problem. This is the idea that descriptive statements and normative statements are categorically different and incommensurable.

Foreigners welcome him while citizens—proud of their godly heritage—are threatened by him. How does this happen?
