They are false if the person doesn't. is the view that moral claims are no more than expressions of approval or disapproval.This sounds like subjectivism, but in emotivism a moral statement doesn't provide information about the speaker's feelings about the topic but expresses those feelings.When an emotivist says "murder is wrong" it's like saying "down with murder" or "murder, yecch!" or just saying "murder" while pulling a horrified face, or making a thumbs-down gesture at the same time as saying "murder is wrong".So when someone makes a moral judgement they show their feelings about something.

The Church’s life of faith is, according to Francis, an indispensable epistemic and hermeneutical context for properly interpreting the Gospel. Furthermore, the Gospel is not to be reduced to interpretations of faith, but rather the Gospel itself provides its own meaningful content, its own message, which is a transcultural substance of faith that is the normative basis of our non-ideological interpretations (cf. , nos. 40-41, 45, 116-117, 129). Any approach that succumbs to the above described temptation would be epistemically and hermeneutically defective because it measures the Gospel by an standard that is foreign to the revelatory narrative.

Moral statements provide factual information about those truths. teaches that moral judgments are nothing more than statements of a person's feelings or attitudes, and that ethical statements do not contain factual truths about goodness or badness.In more detail: subjectivists say that moral statements are statements about the feelings, attitudes and emotions that that particular person or group has about a particular issue.If a person says something is good or bad they are telling us about the positive or negative feelings that they have about that something.So if someone says 'murder is wrong' they are telling us that they disapprove of murder.These statements are true if the person does hold the appropriate attitude or have the appropriate feelings.

Moral Anti-Realism, or Non-Cognitivism (or sometimes "Non-Descriptivism", "Emotivism" or "Expressivism"), on the other hand, maintains that our "folk" understanding of moral language is grossly in error. Moral assertions, judgments, and so forth are not "things" that can be captured by propositions, and hence are not stuff for which truth-status is apt. Of course, like with the variations of Moral Realism, just how to understand moral language differs according to the variation of non-cognitivism preferred. The classic version of non-cognitivism is Emotivism.(11) Emotivism maintains that moral utterances (or thoughts) are not "things" to be captured in propositions but rather function primarily to express emotions, and to elicit the appropriate emotions in others. Emotivism has sometimes been called "The Hurrah!-Boo! Theory" because of its interpretation of positive moral statements as doing something similar to crying "Hurrah!", while negative statements cry "Boo!" The emergence of Logical Positivism and its verifiability criterion of meaning early in the 20th century led some philosophers to conclude that ethical statements, being in their opinion incapable of empirical verification, were cognitively meaningless.(12)
