In this paper I analyze the relationship between religious beliefs of individuals and their attitudes to certain moral and political issues. In some cases, certain behaviours of believers contradict the doctrines of the religions that they claim to profess, although they don't feel less faithful. This dissonance between religious doctrines and beliefs of a religion's followers can be explained through the concept of the privatization of religious beliefs, according to which at present, religious beliefs have lost their objectivity in the context of moral monism. Thus, the believers' convictions are influenced by the social influences on the way the believer understand and apply the dictates of their religion in real life.
