I believe that the moral voice of To Kill a Mockingbird is definitely Atticus Finch. There are many clues in the text that can prove this. For example he talks to everyone as though they are his equal. Whenever Scout and Jem had done wrong Atticus would not talk down to them as if he were better. Also, when Walter Cunningham was invited over for dinner the text said that "they talked at the table like two men". He didn't talk to him because he was poor of even because he was a child. Atticus spoke to everyone like he was no lesser or no greater.

I believe the moral voice in To Kill a Mockingbird is Scout's father Atticus Finch. Throughout the book he is calm, knows what he is doing and what is going on around him, and he treats everyone as his equal. When Walter Cunningham came to dinner he and Atticus "talked like two men". another example of Atticus as the voice of reason was when Scout started to make fun of Walter putting syrup on everything, but Atticus explained that not everyone is the same, and it may be odd to her but it is normal for him.

I think that the moral voice is Atticus. He is calm and I really think he knows what he is doing. I agree with the 2 examples that Cimone And Andrew B. put. Atticus is the moral voice mainly because he is pretty much the leader, so people can respect him.

Atticus finch is definitly the voice of reason. He treats everyone as equal, to him it does not matter what your age is or the color of your skin is. He is calm, respectful and knows what is right.

Atticus Finch is respected by everyone in Maycomb, even the very poor. He functions as the moral backbone of Maycomb. His morality is ultimately his downfall with the people of Maycomb. His conscience and his morals disable him from excepted the racial predjudice that Maycomb county is so comfortable with. He shows this through defending a black man in court, Tom Robinson.
Atticus practices the ethic of sympathy and understanding that he preaches to Scout and Jem and never holds a grudge against the people of Maycomb. Despite their callous indifference to racial inequality, Atticus sees much to admire in them. He recognizes that people have both good and bad qualities, and he is determined to admire the good while understanding and forgiving the bad.
