Required Resources Read/review the following resources for this activity: Textbook: Chapter 13 Lesson Minimum of 1 scholarly source (in addition to the textbook) Introduction Some people believe that you can tell who a person is by what they do when no one is looking.

John Doe knows that his religion forbids him from using this application...
