Pondering that Sister Aloysius’ deep hatred and resentment of Father Flynn is the only reason for these accusations often is used to back this claim up. While discussing their respected beliefs, Sister James exclaims to Sister Aloysius, “You just don’t like him! You don’t like it that he likes ballpoint pen.

Father Flynn also tries to stop and changer direction in his conversation with the Sisters. If Flynn had nothing to hide he should have just told the Sisters the truth. Flynn stands and tells the Sisters that he does not wish to continue the conversation when in my opinion; he should try to clear his name here and now. I believe whether or not he abused the boys in the Nicholas school, he definitely had a secret to hide. Sister Aloysius lied and told Father Flynn that she had called his last parish and she spoke to one of the nuns.

This example illustrates how Davis uses general historical knowledge and facts to strengthen her arguments about the individual
In the article, “Greg Ousley Is Sorry for Killing Parents. Is That Enough?,” by Scott Anderson proves that some young individuals may act violently for certain matters because of how their parents treat them. It is unclear as to why juveniles and adolescents automatically go into extreme measures, however, this may be caused by lack of support from their parents. Anderson asserts, “What Phillips couldn’t see was that Greg’s behavior masked a rapidly deteriorating home life, where he was now the sole focus of his mother’s rage. Almost daily, Greg told me, his mother would rip into him about something- his grades, his appearance, his choice of friends- ferocious tirades that often culminated in her telling him, “I know you’re going to leave me just like your sisters did.” Once her anger passed, Bonnie would usually apologize to her son, but after a time, Greg didn’t even hear it anymore” (Anderson 42).

John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt: A Parable takes place at the St. Nicholas Catholic Church and School in Bronx, New York, 1964.
