moral or ethical system
(3) a system of moral practice directly resulting from an adherence to the belief; Fellowship of Humanity v. County of Alameda
3. Moral or Ethical System: Religious beliefs often prescribe a particular manner of acting, or way of life, that is moral or ethical. In other words, these beliefs often describe certain acts in normative terms, such as right and wrong, good and evil, or just and unjust. The beliefs then proscribe those acts that are wrong, evil, or unjust. A moral or ethical belief structure also may create duties--duties often imposed by some higher power, force, or spirit--that require the believer to abnegate elemental self-interest.

An example from the Shabaka stela:
There comes into being in the heart; there comes into being by the tongue as the image of Atum! Ptah is the very great, who gives life to all the neteru and their kas. It is all in this heart and by this tongue.
His [Ptahs] Puat [Ennead] is before him as heart, authoritative utterance, teeth, semen, lips, and hands of Atum. This Puat [Ennead] of Atum came into being through his semen and through his fingers. Surely, this Puat [Ennead of Ptah] is the teeth and the lips in the mouth, proclaiming the name of all things, from which Shu and Tefwt came forth as him, and which gave birth to the Puat [Ennead of Ptah]. The sight of the eyes, the hearing of the ears, and the breathing of air through the nose, they transmit to the heart, which brings forth every decision. Indeed, the tongue thence repeats what is in front of the heart. Thus was given birth to all the neteru. His [Ptahs] Puat [Ennead] was completed. Lo, every word of the Ntr came into being through the thoughts in the heart and the command by the tongue. Thus all the faculties were made and all the qualities determined, they that make all foods and all provisions, through this word. [Life] to him who does what is loved, [death] to him who does what is hated. Thus life is given to the peaceful and death is given to the criminal. Thus all labor, all crafts, the action of the arms, the motion of the legs, the movements of all the limbs, acording to this command which is devised by the heart and comes orth by the tongue and creates the performance of everything.
These materials answer the religious questions demanded by the courts in order to gain court protection of equal right to first amendment religious beliefs, including but not limited to the equal right to participate in the pool or rotation of clergy to perform invocations or prayers at public meetings, equal access to public buildings and land afforded to other religions or religious groups, the equal right to protection against religious discrimination in employment, education, and housing, the equal right to protection of non-Christian marriage (especially gay and lesbian marriage), and protection of the growing, transportation, distribution, and use of religious plants including cannabis.
The purpose of this section is to prove beyond any possibility of doubt, reasonable or unreasonable, that Pr Ntr Kmt is clearly a superior and more legally valid religion than the Roman Catholic Church and therefore worthy of the protection of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) and the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Technically the courts claim that a religion isnt supposed to be tested for validity, but in practice the courts go on to test validity using the Roman Catholic Church as the standard of comparison. Ultimately all seeking their first amendment rights will have to convince the six member Roman Catholic Church majority of the U.S> Supreme Court (John Roberts, Anthony M. Kennedy, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Sonia Sotomayor) that their religion is clearly superior to the Roman Catholic Church in every possible way.
