I posed an interesting question to my students a few weeks ago. It was a potentially politically incorrect question, but it generated some good discussion. Please bear in mind that this class involved a group of working adults, not traditional undergraduates. Represented in the class were males, females, Caucasians, African-Americans, Catholics, Protestants, and "seeking".
I asked this question:
Do we conform our political views to our faith/religious views? Or do we conform our religious views to our political views?
I think that this is a fair question!
What do you think?
