Dr. Brent McDougal, President
Dr. Brent McDougal of Dallas, Texas, grew up with two great loves: politics and religion. At their best, both involve an ongoing dialogue regarding values, beliefs and community activities that lead to a more peaceful and just society. At their worst, both can cause tension and division, undermining their purpose in culture.
Ethics deals with behaviors based on moral principles. Thus, it rests at the intersection of our beliefs and civic life.
