Week 4 – Discussion Question #2
The connection between moral character and political activism is shown through the passion that people have for their beliefs. Politics has a lot to do with morality; just look at the topics that are discussed in the political forum -- marriage, gay rights, abortion, etc. The deciding factor in a political election quite often tends to be issues of morality. People have such different beliefs about moral issues that politicians have to be very careful to choose which ones they will stand behind. Yes, choose. Do you really think they always stand behind issues that they necessarily believe in? Absolutely not.
