"Neither governments nor corporations are moral. Morality is distinctly a human quality. I think when Romney talked about corporations being people, he meant “made up of people,” not actual human beings." Anything made up of humans possesses morality. That is why Nazi Germany was immoral and the US was Moral. I believe that CS Lewis contrast was with animals not groups of people but I have only read Mere Christianity once. Chik Fil A was acting morally when it gave money to support the family, not necessarily in its own best interest. It is an interesting phenomenon that acting morally is always in your best interest. God made it that way.

"...acting morally is always in your best interest." What rot. Acting morally often gets one very, very dead. 300,000+ Union soldiers. All of the dead Allied soldiers in WWII. The Marine that covers a grenade to protect the rest of his squad. Then there are the wounded in both body and mind.

"ANYTHING made of up humans possesses morality." ??? Then you state that the NAZI's were A-moral which is the opposite of your previous assertion. Please clarify your point. You've lost me.

Without moralls, and morality, what form of civilization would exist? Animals have no morals or morality. You want to live like animals again? The biggest problem on earth today is too many people with no morals.

Acting immorally resulted in 12 million non-military dead curtesy of the Nazis. 20 million dead in Russia, another 20 million dead in China, 7 million dead in Vietnam, 5 million dead in Cambodia(the "Killing Fields") plus countless others in SE Asia and Africa: all curtesy of the Comunists. Acting morally put a stop to this.

Are you a "good" man?

What Horriblis clearly meant was that "ANYTHING made up of humans posesses [the aspect of] morality" not the value judgment of moral vs. immoral. Something that is Amoral lacks an aspect subject to definition as either moral or immoral which is confined to the individual actions of human beings.
