Abstract:

The main purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between personal religious orientation and ethical ideologies. Demographic variables were also taken into consideration as moderators to examine if moderating effects exist. 265 questionnaires were collected to test the conceptual framework. We found that personal religious orientation is significantly negatively correlated with relativism, but nonsignificantly correlated with idealism. Age and education have moderate effects on the relationship between personal religious orientation and ethical ideology. The theoretical and practical implications of religious orientation and ethical ideology are also discussed.
