    Yes, a non religious person can be ethical. There are several sources to improve the intelligence and know about right moral and right justice.

    Of course they can.  One is not dependent on the other, but I would hope that religious people always acted ethically. 

  • Yes, and you can be ethical despite being religious.

    Religion is cultural,  ethics and morals are basic foundations for worldwide communities thattranscendspecificcultures, they can be considered separate entities. So 'yes' to your question.

    Yes, why on earth not. Some use religion as an excuse not to be ethical
