Anne Bradstreet’s difficulty with accepting her faith revolves around her devotion to her husband. She had a different approach to expressing her faith than many other Puritans. Bradstreet followed her religion in hopes that her actions would lead to her husband being brought to salvation. She expresses these actions when writing, “That when we live no more, we may live ever. ”(Bradstreet 12).
and we got ours. Its our church ain't it miss Cal?” This illustrates that even some of the black citizens held racial discriminate views. This is a good example of counter culture because the colored citizens of Maycomb essentially create their own society to combat the racism so that way the rest
Mama continuously shows her dedication towards God by going to church and making her children go to church as well. Mama states that it was a trouble to get her kids to school every Sunday but that didn't deter her from wanting to go.

But whether I go into business selling it to ‘em is, and I don't want that on my ledger this late in life."
According to Abigail Archer, who wrote Elizabeth I, during Edward’s reign, Elizabeth was treated affectionately by Edward, and he welcomed her on occasional visits to court. However, during Mary’s reign Elizabeth suffered. Abigail Archer suggest that “Mary’s attitude toward Elizabeth veered from friendship to suspicion and back.” (Archer n.p.) This could be for the reasons mentioned before, she did not trust her due to her faith after Elizabeth’s birth and that they believe in different religions.

In the beginning of “Margery Kempe”, a spiritual autobiography, Kempe uses imagery to portray her devotion to God as well as the process of moving away from her wifely duties. The nature of her relationship with Christ is all consuming. Kempe has been trying to persuade her husband to let her leave after the death of her first child. After unsuccessful tries, Kempe finally has convinced her husband to let her leave him after having fourteen children. “And make my body free to God, so that you never make any claim on me requesting any conjugal debt after this day as long as you live— and shall eat and drink on Fridays at your bidding.”
During the early to mid-nineteenth century women’s roles were seen to be confined to domestic affairs, but this phase would only lead to a stronger voice for women coming from within the home. The Second Great Awakening in the early 1800’s sparked a need for religion in the American culture. Women dominantly filled the churches leaving men to fend the vices of the world alone. In efforts to bring religion back, a new role for women was formed, the Cult of True Womanhood (Ginzberg 8).
Living in a predominately Caucasian neighborhood that were Christians and Catholics, in Lakewood, Colorado, I was exposed to many friends that are these religions. Therefore, they would ask me to go to church with them to watch performances that their church is putting on. I would go to these church events, even though I am Buddhist because I wanted to be exposed to other religions and see how they worship their god. Although I never thought about changing my religion, I do find it interesting how differently my religion is to everyone else’s. My parents never knew I went to other church events because they are strict about me just being in temples.
Allision’s culture is very strict when it comes to mate selection because of the the Peruvian culture being very religious and predominantly Catholic. She expressed her life being extremely strict with parents being very upfront about marrying in the same culture/race as her and even the same religion. However, there is no arranged marriages so she is free to pick her husband so she has the final say in her selection. The culture also is very big on huge weddings with the immediate families being heavily involved and even extended families coming together.
I interviewed my mom, Catherine Farrar, for the religion interview assignment. My mom was raised Catholic, but stopped attending church in college and never looked back. She is a feminist, and the Catholic Church is simply not conducive to feminist beliefs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s piece, “The Introduction to The Women’s Bible” seemed to mirror my mom’s stance on the issue; the Bible was written by men, for men, with the goal of achieving power over others. Clearly, the Bible does not favor women, and this is true for many religious texts.
In the beginning, Miss Evans has to find out from Mrs. Rowell that Harjo has two wives (Oskison 1037). This reveals that Miss Evans was only concerned in preaching to Harjo that she fails to get to know him, which also shows the contempt she harbors against him. Secondly, despite living within three miles of his home, Miss Evans only visits in order to convince him to give up one of his wives (Oskison 1038). Once again, her actions disclose the fact that she views Harjo has some sort of “salvation project” rather than a fellow human being. Lastly, as a Christian, she is expected to treat others kindly, but she acts contradictory to her faith by labeling Harjo as a bigamist.
If they are lost, who are they? Native Americans have had their whole history, nearly, erased: lost. They are told who they were and who they are supposed to be through books, TV and films, but the true account of Native American history has been lost through the grapevine of oral history. Their identity as a person has been mythicized. If they are lost, who are they?
