Caddell. 1994. "Religion and the Meaning of Work." Concentrating first on the decision-making criteria models (on the left), and focusing on the religious variables, Model 1 shows that (net of the age, sex, education, income, marital status, race, and occupation control variables) greater religious service attendance and increased religious conservatism both predict increased likelihood of considering morally-principled, altruistic criteria (based on moral correctness, benefits to others, and benefits to the employer) in making difficult decisions at work.

From early on in John’s life, though, he felt as though he was “a woman trapped in a man’s body.” Joan says, “I don’t mean to repeat that old shopworn cliché, but it really is what I felt like.” Joan tells you that when she was twenty she began the process of “transitioning” from life as a man to life as a woman. From the point of view of theistic religions, to the extent that ethics stems from revealed truth from divine sources, ethics is studied as a branch of theology.
