    so much as the question of the more fundamental question of whether it should be.

    Ok - we are still talking about the same thing.


    All people who use reason -- including the very many people who do so within a context of religion -- to judge moral issues start with a priori assumptions which are not themselves, ultimately, products of reason.

    Yes, but what we are dealing with is a lot of people who use reason but base their judgements upon superstitous beliefs - such as "souls".
