was the categorical imperative not this.

"Act only according to that maxim whereby you can at the same time will that it should become a universal law without contradiction."

this could be tied into absolute morality. an absolute morality would contain maxims that could become a universal law without contradiction.

this is better reasoning than going on a rant about child molesters.

morality is the belief that there are good and wrong actions.
