Latin American society is strictly Catholic due to historical reasons of being colonies of Catholic Spain and Portugal, therefore the influence of Catholic Church is very sensible, especially in literature. Mexican people’s view of Catholicism differs from European that is why it is important to compare it with the verses from the Bible, understand their interpretation and find its motives in the novel. The author of “Pedro Paramo” Juan Rulfo raises Mexican Christianity elements all over the novel. According to Christianity, a deceased person goes to Hell, Heaven or purgatory after death. The purgatory is a place, where souls, that are sinful for Heaven, but too pure for Hell, go to be purged of their sins (de Chaparro 2007, 13; Espinosa 1910, 407).

The truth is that in our society education is highly important to have stability in life, so it makes sense that his parent were worried when he said he did not want to go to college. If I was in their place, I too would have wanted the best for McCandless and insisted he get a good education. I do think that McCandless is admirable for following his own path and not worrying about society's standards. At the same time, he seems a bit selfish despite his charity. He seems like he wants to impose his views on others because he thinks he is right, and when people do not completely agree, he cuts them out of his life.
Without him having is individualism he have always thought that he was a curse as his teachers is always told him. Equality would not have been able to be with the golden one or care for his child and teach him the importance of his individualism. If the people today are motivated by curiosity and the wanting a loving place then our world would be very evil. People would not care about others or one to put in work that I was needed to be done like they do now. By this Equality has every right to have great amount of passion for his people and be curious of what is out
He discusses the possibility of this occurring through natural theology, or contemplation, but decides that this is not possible due to the “ignorance and stupidity of the people” (sec. 6, pg. 29, para 1). He continues on to refute other possible explanations, before concluding that it occurs as a natural result of the flattery system; humans place one God above all others and say that he is omnipresent and infinite (sec. 6, pg.
They do not accept transgender just because of their religion. If the people in James church found out that he was a transgender, then he would be banished because of it. This is effecting James well-being in a negative way because he does not know what to do because he does not want to destroy and humiliate his family just because he feels like he is in the wrong body and wants to be a transgender person. By doing this he hides this huge secret away that is clouding him and he does not know what to do. This is unfair for James because it isn 't his felt that he feels like he is a in the wrong body and should be a girl and he is being punished for it and it 's really going to affect his life if he does not be himself and be open about his sexuality.

In a conversation that Father Jerome has with Aenons, the difference of cultures between them is made very apparent, especially when it comes to dreams. Father Jerome tells Aenons that he and his people no longer have a need for interpreting dreams, as God will tell them what to do. This is hard for Aenons to accept when he says, “if we give our belief in the dream, then the Huron life, the way we have always known, will end for us” (Moore 230). It is more than just a dream to the Hurons, it is their beliefs and their way of life, and Father Jerome doesn’t understand that. Even when Aenons is talking to Father Laforgue, he is still reluctant about what conversion might do to him and his people.
