Racist Command Theory
There is a concept in theology and meta-ethics known as Divine Command Theory, which asserts that morality and moral goodness stem from god, and therefore whatever a god commands is moral because they commanded it, and every action a god takes is moral because they did it.  What makes Divine Command Theory such flawed concept is that it divorces behavior from its consequences, or from any guiding principle — from its merits, and makes it dependent on whatever some authority says or does.  At bottom, it's an inversion of basic causal logic.
