Civil Disobedience plays much significance into current American values. Throughout the country, there are many non-violent protests that take place against the government due to the decisions that are being made. If an individual believed the government was not doing their job, they could disobey the law to prove their point, much like Thoreau. Thoreau displayed his act of civil disobedience by
What Blankenhorn writes in ‘How My View on Gay Marriage Changed’ could be seen as somewhat contradictive. Blankenhorn starts out by writing how the time has come for him to accept gay marriage. However, both in 2007 and in 2010 he emphasizes his reluctance against gay marriage. On the same page as he says, he accepts gay marriage he writes: “I have written these things in my book and said them in my testimony , and I believe them today. I am not recanting any of it.”
What is companionship? Many would say that these are just two things that go hand in hand in what many would consider marriage, but according to Sprigg, “It’s still not sufficient to define marriage”(Sprigg P.7). In addition, He uses this to support his protest that homosexual relationships shouldn’t be given the legal status of marriage. To some this is all simply a man answering questions while declaring his standpoint on the topic, but to me it’s much more. As a member-for lack or a better word- of the LGBT community it honestly breaks my heart to see that someone could be so determined that marriage defies same-sex relationships as well as have the audacity to even claim said unions have any ‘consequences’ at all, and negative at that.
In the beginning of the speech, King goes back to the Constitution and Declaration of Independence stating that ”....all men, black or white, were to be granted the same rights” (Declaration of Independence). King goes on to explain how this right has not been kept, making it appear to be similar to a laid-back rule. Ethically most people believe that it is necessary to keep a promise.
One of those people being Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln said that our nation is not just about our great army or our forts but it’s about liberty for all people,everywhere not just here in America and by expanding America lost thought of that. He also said that the people who take away freedom from others don’t deserve the freedom they have. Secondly, the US didn’t want any different cultures or language other than our language and culture however, they got Hawaii,Alaska,China and Japan which all ahve differnt languages and cultures. Lastly, by expanding they broke the trust of some of the nations and drained them of their liberty and freedom that Americans claim is what the US is all about.
According to the article, ¨Fighting for Democracy¨, it states “I was angered to realize that my government felt that I was disloyal and part of the enemy, [an] enemy alien,” Inouye said. “And I wanted to be able to demonstrate, not only to my government, but to my neighbors that I was a good American.” This shows that many volunteered for the task force to prove America wrong about Japanese Americans. Many wanted to show everyone, that they are loyal and just as American as anybody
The reason I say this is because not knowing how people will react to you coming out. Which in my opinion it shouldn’t be scary. But yes looking at our society that has been shaped for many of years, it still is a barrier to come out. We have progressed as time has brought the present which makes me happy to see more and more gays coming to accept themselves and coming out. I came out when I was 12 years old.

Although this may be true, many other people do believe that the events occurring during the 1920’s changed American lives for the worst. This was due to the many racial and religious conflicts arising during this time. With every other concept becoming modern in the United States, modernists took this approach with religion as well. They believed that they could accept Darwin’s theory without sacrificing their religious faith.
David Von Drehle’s article about the recent controversy in an elected Kentucky Clerk 's office describes Kim Davis ' refusal to issue same sex marriage licenses and stresses that it is not her place to do so. In this article, David Von Drehle uses strong rhetoric to convince the reader that it is not Kim Davis’ place to refuse to issue marriage licenses. He starts out with the phrase “The heat around gay marriage is obscuring what a simple distinction this actually is. But suppose the Rowan County Clerk was a devout Hindu” (Von Drehle Time)
This right has been given to the people by the founding fathers; for that reason, no one has the right to overcome this right or violate it, as he/she will not only infringe the great philosophies and minds of the founding fathers, such as John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Alexander Hamilton, but also he/she will violate a Constitutional right. Our founding fathers were not the only people that defended religious freedom, but also many great people have done so. One of these people was the fortieth President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, where he mentioned in one of his speeches that “Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.” Democracy, the governmental type that the United States is based upon, is characterized by certain freedoms such as the freedom of press, speech, assembly, and of course the freedom of religion. The extravagantly diverse religions that the United States is relishing is a major contribution to its prosperity and economic stability; additionally, the United States has been a welcoming home to many religions, in which it (the United States) had the advantage of exploiting all of its people’s motivations and resources which caused the United States to become one of the leading nations in today’s society.
For example, on his vision to end slavery and foster freedom and equality, he signed the Abolition Act, issued the Emancipation Proclamation and pushed for the passing of the Thirteenth Amendment in the house. He also kept his potential rivals like McLean close, and sought their advice but still retained his autonomy in critical decisions regarding the nation. Moreover, he was also a great orator and some of his sayings are still cited to date. Lincoln was neither timid nor naturally cautious and took great risks, which eventually led to his assassination by the sympathizer of the south who felt offended by President’s broad anti-slavery and equality policies and actions. Though, resented by a few, Abraham Lincoln had earned his fully deserved reputation, ‘as the greatest president in the U.S history’.
