Question # 1:   Discuss the major similarities and differences, in your opinion, between morality and each of the following: law, customs, and religion.

Morality is a very hard term to define. It is a set of ideals which an individual or a society abides by much as   laws, customs, and religions. These ideals are sometimes mistaken for the other in our uses.
A government is governed by   laws which a society follows. These laws are based on set of rules which the society has decided that an act is either right or wrong. These laws are widely accepted by the society and they govern the way in which the society acts. These laws must be specific and absolute in order for the society to understand them. Otherwise, there will be confusion and chaos within the society. Like laws, morality is “like a set of laws” that govern the way in which we act. Most of the time, it is widely accepted that an act is either moral or immoral. Morality is like a law in this sense. Unlike law, morality is not govern by a structured system. It has no order in that there is no absolute way to say that an act is   moral or not. Laws, on the other hand, have a structured system that is maintained by the ruler of the government. It clearly states that certain acts are wrong in the eyes of the whole society.
Custom is a belief which people have passed on through the generations. It is widely accepted within each cultures. It may be different through the many cultures that are in existence. With morality, it is also widely accepted that an act is either moral or immoral. This kind of thinking, morality, was mostly passed on through our upbringing.
Customs and morality are different in that some customs are accepted without questions through the generations. Morality, on the other hand, is still bringing debate through this generation. This debate will continue due to the fact that each person is unique and that each person is an individual.
Religion, like morality, is very vague....
