Is an impartial morality too demanding?

Why is it that so many people consider impartial morality as over-demanding? Is it not a good thing to leave emotions and prejudices out of moral judgments?
If not, why not?

By impartial morality I mean a morality that demands us to ignore emotions, prejudices, basically all subjective intuitions when making a moral decision.

It's not over-demanding, you simply cannot ignore emotions when making
a moral decision. Furthermore, you and I might have different standards
pertaining to morality. There is no such thing as universal morality.

Sorry there is no moral system without a tight tie in with a community at a given time.

One of the thing I love are people trying to place 2009 Western culture morals onto another time and place.

Morals can not exist and have no meaning without referencing a group as there is no universal free floating ideals morl systems cut off from emotions and groups needs.
