4-1 Discussion: Make Your Case

“God’s moral law conflicts with my job duties,” Davis told the judge. “You can’t be separated from something that’s in your heart and in your soul.” But Bunning [the presiding judge] was unconvinced. “I myself have genuinely held religious beliefs,” the judge later said, but “I took an oath.”

Duties of Elected County Officials (Revised July 2020)

 (pp. 53-54), which contains the job description for a Kentucky county clerk (Note: After you click on the link above, you will need to click the PDF file next to Duties of Elected County Officials (Revised September 2018) under the Informational Bulletins section.)

Take one of the following two positions: (1) an individual must carry out the mission of the organization they represent even if their personal convictions or beliefs conflict with that mission, or (2) an individual should not be obligated to carry out the mission of the organization they represent if their personal convictions or beliefs conflict with that mission.

First, title your initial post either “an individual must carry out the mission of the organization they represent even if their personal convictions or beliefs conflict with that mission” or “an individual should not be obligated to carry out the mission of the organization they represent if their personal convictions or beliefs conflict with that mission.”

Then, using the provided example or one you have researched, make your case. Use the following questions to guide you in your response:

  • Why is or isn’t it critical for an individual to carry out an organization’s mission if that mission conflicts with their personal beliefs?
  • Is it ever acceptable to allow personal convictions or beliefs to overrule an organization’s mission? Why or why not?
  • Are there alternatives that could be considered to allow these seemingly conflicting ideas to coexist? Explain.

In response to your peers, consider how their argument compares to yours. Do you agree with their position? Why or why not? Did their position agree with yours, but they made a point you hadn’t considered? Did they make the opposite argument, but you found yourself agreeing with parts of their logic? Which of their points or arguments make the most sense to you, even if you still disagree with their overall position?
