The Impact of Religion on Moral Development in Kabale Diocese; A Case Study of Southern Division Kabale Municipality.
A major obstacle to investigating the role of religion in moral development is the widespread misunderstanding about what religion is. For most people in the world, including in Africa, 'religion' refers to a belief in the existence of an invisible world, distinct but not separate from the visible one, which is home to spiritual beings that are deemed to have effective powers over the material world. For people who hold this point of view, the invisible world is an integral part of the world, which cannot be reduced to its visible or material form only. Many people have a view that religion is an obstacle to moral development. In Uganda, it is believed that it is due to misguided religious principles that Joseph Kony waged a war against the government of Uganda. One of the reasons why many people regard religion as an obstacle to moral development is that religious attitudes are commonly thought to be socially conservative, for example, the views of the catholic church about contraception, Islamic views about the role of women and their access to education, or the centrality of caste to Hinduism.
