“Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.” This was one of the many quotes proclaimed by the infamous Martin Luther, founder of the Protestant Church. Luther was known for breaking away from the corrupted Catholic Church, and creating a whole new branch of Christianity called Protestantism. His actions caused a major strife within the religious world. These events caused many to choose a side between the Catholics and the Protestants. Although Luther was banished for attempting to fix a broken community, it was only a mere setback in his eyes.
The Destruction of the Male God in Emily Dickinson’s “Over the Fence” and in Rosemary Radford Ruether’s “The Liberation of Christology from Patriacrchy” Rosemary Radford Ruether in her article, “The Liberation of Christology from Patriarchy," and Emily Dickinson in her poem, “Over the Fence,” destroy two structures, at the core of which resides the male gendered God. The two interconnected structures — the patriarchal/gender structure, which is hierarchical, and therefore, vertical structure, and the language structure, which is a linear structure— create the traditional and cultural God in Christianity. By deconstructing these structures, Dickinson and Ruether both destroy the male God. Reuther claims that since Christianity is grounded on “the Greek and Hellenistic Jewish tradition,” which was shaped by patriarchal culture, God turns to be a male God, and He became the essence of the hierarchical system of this patriarchal tradition (138). Reuther states that the overall hierarchical structure of the Christian religion is God-man-woman-the physical world.
In Islam, the five pillars are the main difference just as Mary is the mother of Jesus and the beginning of the Christian religions teachings. Also in Christianity, the story of Adam and Eve is synonymous with sin. In 1099 a considerable conflict occurred to drive a wedge between the religions. The event was the Crusades, and it resulted in the slaughter of a majority of the inhabitants and the seizing of Jerusalem. Islam and Christianity share the similar value of being monotheistic and worshipping a single God.
Molière, Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, wrote his comedy play in 1664. This was also a time when the Catholic Church had a strong impact on society. This comical play, Tartuffe, was an attack on both religion and hypocrisy. Molière wrote this play to show how easily religion could be used to disguise sin and also to show how hypocritical the Christians were during that period of time. When it was first performed in front of King Louis XIV, critics thought that it was offensive towards the Catholic Church and they banned any future performances until 1669.
Even the Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Muhammad said that the whole Muslim community are treated with contempt and dishonor by the US with denigrated religion, desecrated holy place and occupied Muslim's land. All Muslims were suffering 'oppression and humiliation' with their religion accused of promoting terrorism . In result that anti-Americanism is not about Arabs’ saying, however it spread to other counties. The emergence of anti-Americanism also appears in response to an anti-Islam video, allegedly produced by a bigoted Coptic Christian living in the United States. The film is about 14 minutes trailer titled Innocence of Muslims, the movie depicts the Prophet Muhammad in what Muslims say is a derogatory manner.
We can look to the (near) universal condemnation of the neo Nazi marches in Charlottesvilles. But ignoring the signs of burgeoning hatred (particularly in Europe) will surely be a detriment to our people. We Jews must admit that the largest threat facing our people today is not from right wing, neo Nazi antisemites. For years now, Jews across Europe have been attacked and threatened, in large part due to Muslim extremists and radical leftists. Contrary to Islamic antisemitism, Nazism is a despicable ideology of the past , forever (G-d willing) discarded into the ashbin of history.
Digging back in history, Rubenstein learns that before the Arian controversy, "Jews and Christians could talk to each other and argue among themselves about crucial issues like the divinity of Jesus. They disagreed strongly about many things, but there was still a closeness between them." But when the controversy was settled, Rubenstein notes, "that closeness faded. To Christians, God had became a Trinity and heresy had became a crime.
Furthermore, euthanasia intrudes upon God’s planned cycle of life and death. For Hindus, euthanasia infringes upon several fundamental ideas, like ahimsa, karma, and dharma. According to Christianity, life is a gift from God, created in his image, and imbued with the Holy Spirit. Therefore, euthanasia is an offense against God’s creation and the Holy Spirit. Christian scripture provides textual evidence in support of this perspective.
It is without hesitation that one may say that every nation in the modern world has been revolutionized through the introduction of religion. The instillation of various religions has shaped the world of today by both destroying and creating peoples and their traditions. Holy lands have been desecrated and entire populations decimated; ideas and philosophies have been generated and revolutions galvanized, all in the name of religion and holy orders. Devotional doctrine has been used as a source of power and authority by anyone from kings to popes to local chieftains for countless generations. The Protestant Reformation in the realm of Sweden was no different than the myriad of religious upheavals throughout history, in regard to the amount
Resolution 60/7, was adopted on 1 November 1st 2005, which condemns all demonstrations of religious intolerance, harassment, incitement or violence against individuals or communities due to their ethnic origin or religious belief. This resonates with survivors and victims of the Holocaust as the Jewish people were out rightly targeted and attacked based on their religion and ethnicity. The criticism of these revolting behaviours is a testimony to the efforts of the Holocaust and UN Outreach Programme to identify and negate actions which are recognisable as similar to the actions the Nazis took to dehumanise the Jews and project their repugnant intolerance. The 27th of January is now internationally recognised annually as a Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust, focused on the remembrance of the Holocaust thanks to Resolution 60/7. Countries around the world band together on this day to connect as one global community, remembering how the Holocaust changed the world
