Both of their journeys had a great cause of the separation from England. Both groups wanted to seek freedom in different ways but still did not come to agreement within themselves beside the fact the wanted to get away from King James and his way of castigation.

This resistance was mainly due to Okeke 's belief that the traditional marriage is not obsolete. After Okeke finds out she is also from another tribe, he continues to disapprove of Nnaemeka 's decision. "When [Okeke] sent for Nnaemeka a day later he applied all possible ways of dissuasion." Okeke resisted against Nnaemeka 's decision quite strongly and tried his best to change his mind. This is another instance of Nnaemeka 's change of tradition was met by resistance from his father.
Jake grew away from his faith because he was angry with God for his injury from the war and has a hard time accepting that God would let this happen to him. In this scene, Hemingway shows how religion is corrupt when one can be part of the faith and be associated with its morality even if they still do not exercise it currently. This theme is thus developed by the
Because he is first hesitant to take the case of Sierva, he does not believe he is capable of being responsible for her exorcism, and he seems afraid. He tells the bishop, “I am not an exorcist, father, I do not have the character or the training or the knowledge to claim to be one. Besides, we know that God has set me on another path” (76). But by him accepting the responsibility that is where it all began. It starts with a belief that Sierva is not possessed and that took over his life because he knew he had to do something to prove it.

Also, the ATF seemed to have a lack of understanding of the Davidians and their religion, there seemed to be an underlying sense of judgement. “…inability to understand and relate to the religious beliefs…an abysmal lack of understanding of the phenomenon of the religious faith,” (Arnold 24). However, some might say that the Davidians were too extreme in their faith and beliefs. They may have taken things too far, they should have surrendered when they were told to, etc. This is something the media and authorities played up publicly.
But — “ “It’s the choosing that’s important, isn’t it?” The Giver asked him.” In document E it also explains that people aren’t able to choose their mates or jobs. In document F it explains that the community wouldn 't let anyone make their own decisions because they might make the wrong choice. The evidence explains that Jonas’s community is a dystopia because people in the community don’t get to make their own decisions because they might choose wrongly. It also explains that Jonas wants to make his own decisions, the giver agrees and tells him “It’s the choosing that’s important,isn’t it?” This shows that the giver tells Jonas that it doesn’t matter what you have to choose but Jonas just wants the freedom to
By shedding light on areas that need addressing, Russell rightly stirred a great deal of controversy and disagreement. Frequently, our man-made traditions, behaviors, and actions within a religion are wrongly designated as holy, but as we often say in class, “absolute power corrupts absolutely”; this is very evident in the watering down of Christian tradition through the power-grabbing tendencies of human nature. However, as in any aspect of life, if we are not willing to look into the parts of ourselves that need improvement, we will never grow. Though I may disagree with his broad categorization of Christians, I agree that his points are valid and definitely give the Christian faith a great deal to consider and work to improve
Danforth is too concerned with his reputation to admit that his judgement, at first, was clouded. Many ask for his mercy towards the accused and he denies it to them to keep his reputation, “... Postponement now speaks floundering on my part...” (Miller 667). This shows that Danforth could have ended the hysteria in Salem by admitting that he does not believe that any of the accused are guilty and claiming the accused not
However, there is still a clear divide between the Pueblos and their new Catholic patriarchy. When the Father asks if Teofilo has been found Leon tells him that, “ everything is O.K. now ” ( Silko 1173). While this technically isn’t a lie, it illustrates Leon and Father Paul’s relationship. Clearly, Leon does not respect Father Paul and does not think he holds enough significance to be informed about Teofilo’s death.
However, despite this fact the treaty was still ratified and now we are going to get forced out of our homes. This removal may not seem very important to anyway outside of the Cherokee nation because they do not understand the gravity of the situation. It is not as simple as simply moving. Even if we did move the task itself would prove to be too difficult for many of our elders and children, plus the trail westward has its own dangers. Even if we did forgo this, we still do not want to leave this land for it was given to us by our gods.
