: I'm a little confused by the phrase "he has the strength of his convictions". Does it mean that a person has strong convictions, or does it mean that a person is given strength through having convictions?

: Is this a phrase that is sometimes misapplied?

: Thanks.

: Patty

Wrong on both - it's a reference to homosexuality.
