Mmmm,
After listening to this (short vid) a couple of times, I think that the answer has to be yes.
Not without flaws, (who is?) and not perfect by any means, but, like most of the population, trying my best to be the best that I can be with what Ive got to go on!

Beats me why people in the 21st centuary have to wear middle aged gear to present a ''Holy'' appearance....
What is it with robes???
Aye.
Being a good person is the best most of us can be.
It's likely the garb of his order Nailit and matters not a jot.

Agreed. Jeans & t-shirt would have been just as good ;-)
"I want you to be a good atheist, even though you're going to burn in hell for all eternity, sucker!"

I can't abide people like this with their covert holier-than-thou preaching. A no more have to explain to anyone why I don't believe in god than why I don't believe in the tooth fairy. Nobody else's business.
Doesn't matter how good or bad atheists are because they haven't got to worry about going to hell even if they are.

Just a young monk who hasnt yet read the Bible, church history, etc!
Or who realises that believers (different from his faith) or even unbelievers, can do good in this world as well!

Or is it a case that morality depends on belief?

The Muslims are wrong, and are destined for hell.

The JW's are are wrong and destined for hell.

The Mormons are wrong and are destined for hell

The Protestants are wrong and are destined to hell

The Catholics are wrong and are destined to hell

add infinum

I'm sure his motives are genuine and honourable.
Morality doesn't depend upon belief in my view.

I only have to look around me to know that.
Hear hear!
