Is There a "Moral Compass" in a Post-Religious World?

Have Americans buried their moral compass and settled for “transactional politics? 

Once again, and as I've mentioned before, this election is, for me, Scylla vs. Charybdis, so resist scolding me about which candidate is better than the other, etc.  However, I found this partisan article in the Financial Times and it caused me to wonder about this notion of a "moral compass" even existing in the 21st century.  After all, as a philosophy colleague once stated, "There is no longer truth, only points of view."

If you think not, remember that the federal government now promotes the view that individuals need not base their gender on biology, but on how they feel self-identify.
