If interpreted subjectively, then there's no standard. Without a standard there is no objectivity. Without objectivity reality is open to interpretation, which cancels out everyone's opinion.
Reality is interpreted according to an objective standard, otherwise we'll be sitting here arguing all day to no effect. That includes the reality of the existence of good and evil.
We may not have objective standards but we know evil when we see it and we don't need a reference to a deity to figure it out. It is not rocket science. You harm a child, we know the consequences, unfortunately this dude didn't care or think about them.
The pitiful thing about this case: the father now writing these letters to his son saying how much he loves him and wants to be part of his life.
Like that would ever happen after what he did.
