An Argument Against Subjective Morality

P1. If morality is relative to the subject, then morality is a domain that is a  matter of personal opinion.

P2. All domains that are matters of personal opinion, are domains where facts and evidence cannot determine correct belief.

P3.  All domains where facts and evidence cannot determine correct belief are domains that lack propositions for which it is worth dying before giving assent under coercion.

P4.  Morality is a domain with propositions for which it is worth dying before giving assent under coercion.

C. Morality is not relative to the subject.

P1 and P2 are not too objectionable.  That is just what we mean when we say that morality is subjective.  I think that if you are going to object to the argument, you will object to P3 or P4.
