Anaya uses religion as a way to tear the family apart as well as a way to bring Antonio’s family together. For example, religion tears Antonio’s family apart through destiny. Antonio’s mother wants him to become a priest with strong religious values. On the other hand, Antonio’s father wants Antonio to roam free and stray away from anything trying to keep him down. Another example is how religion spiritually tears Antonio apart.
Doubt Based on the evidence in Patrick Shanley’s play, The Doubt: A Parable, Father Flynn is innocent because there is no tangible proof of sexual assault and Sister Aloysius is only trying to hurt Father Flynn for being different. The whole parable is about the term, doubt. It has readers flipping back and forth between the notion of Father Flynn guilty of committing sexual assault, and not being guilty. The end of the parable offers no precise verdict in the case. It leaves its readers confused, and demanding of an answer.
Every single person has and will experience hardship; many of it against their own society. John Proctor, however, has a more severe case. He is forced to choose between his own life and his values — his name, his moral code. This is just another example of a hyper-religious society walking on the backs of the ones it is designed to protect. The children corrupt the system; they take over the reigns and twist the perceptions of their people until they became the ones in control.
Arthur Miller's utilization of incongruity in The Crucible shows exactly how tricky the human species is. He makes a situation that spins around the congregation and how the general population must take after their decrees and keep their dedication to God, however all they truly do conflicts with their ten edicts. John submitted infidelity by yearning for Abbigail when he was at that point wedded to Elizabeth and had constructed a family with her. Abigail is desirous of Elizabeth for having John and her yearning for retaliation drives her to lie and control the town as she did. It is essentially unexpected how all through every one of the allegations and guards, everyone would lecture their confidence in God and the congregation yet whatever they did was definitely not what they were required to.
While Fr. Flynn is fighting for his innocence, he stumbles upon multiple obstacles along the way. John Patrick Shanley describes Flynn’s situation with a very edgy tone in the book “Doubt.” Fr. Flynn is a priest at St. Nicholas school, he has been kicked out of three previous schools , but we do not know why he was expelled from them. I think Flynn is guilty has molested Donald Muller because of his past and further evidence.
Michael Ignatieff believes that, for one to truly fit in with their peers, they must apprehend to the unspoken codes that reside among them. These unspoken rules are frankly actions and thoughts that society believes are unacceptable and shouldn't be preformed. As easy as it may sound, many characters throughout literature and people of today’s generation find following these unspoken rules quite difficult, mainly due to the fact that these codes are never vocalized, but expected of all. Unspoken rules, or tacit codes, are destructive to young people’s creativity and individuality as they produce the unsatisfactory results of a homogenous society. In J. D. Salinger’s, The Catcher in the Rye, the main character Holden Caulfield doesn’t follow the restrictive tacit codes that were set in place during the 1950s, mainly due to
The Giver is dystopia world also because they are under bad rules. Their memories and feelings were controlled and they had the ability to see color taken away. “Life here is orderly, so predictable-so painless. It’s what they’ve chosen”. Without their memories they aren't as wise and didn't see reality.
In “By the Waters of Babylon” by Stephen Vincent Benét, he demonstrates that one might have to break the rules for the betterment of society by the use of internal conflict, dramatic irony, and epiphany resolution. Benét writes about John being conflicted with decisions about breaking the rules, which is shown through the use of internal conflict. John is the son of a priest and has followed rules his entire life (Benét 315). He tells his father about dreams he has been having, and he decides to go on a quest with the permission of his father (Benét 316). He waits for signals to tell him where to go, and after getting these signals, which were an eagle and three deer with a white fawn going east, he decides to go east (Benét 316-7).
The famed author C.S. Lewis once said,”Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.” This is a statement that many can agree or disagree on. To some, it means that a ruling power or government could enforce rules and regulations on its citizens that are thought of as helping them, but instead making everything worse and are hindering them from making the society better. A counter argument could be that the oppression is helping the society become better. Some examples of this type of dystopian society are Harrison Bergeron and The Lottery.
Religion is the metal detector that guides people throughout the treacherous minefield, we like to call life. If you were to ask Lane Dean from “Good People” he would likely agree with that assessment. Lane once lived a simpler life, but ever since his unplanned pregnancy he has been completely torn. “It was of two great and terrible armies within himself, opposed and facing each other, silent.” (Wallace 153) Lane is so invested in his faith that it is literally tearing him apart. Moreover, it has him unconditionally questioning every aspect of his life, even his faith which has accompanied him thus far.
Martin went through many trials. Because he taught the truth about the Catholics, he was hunted and he went into to hiding. He could not stay away from preaching the truth. He emerged from his hiding to fight the good fight. Luther wrote many letters stating the truth about Christianity.
Not to mention that even after reflecting on what they heard in church the families continue to engage in a battle later that day. Twain is trying to prove that overly powerful people like the Grangerfords or the Shepherdsons are either foolish or
