It is not an effect of decreased demand for religion (as secularization theorists would suggest). However, and despite the debatable ad hoc premise of this argument (i.e. defining religious demand as a constant), this approach is further limited by the fact that it still treats secularization as a unidimensional
Although this person would have to make a decision without being aware of his identity, this would apply to all. However, it seems that Rawls neglects the present pragmatic state of affairs. The concepts of fairness and equality in Rawls’ methodology would definitely be hard to refute, when being applied in an existent and factual original position. In this case we would have the scenario of never having inhabited a society before and we would be able to from something out of a clean slate, in which no one could possibly be disadvantaged. Rawls’ hypothetical scenario, however, is not factual, nor does it pose meaningful applicability to our present situation.
Despite this complete juxtaposition this does not mean that the people of Bhubaneswear are morally inferior to that of Western society but this should show that certain cultures and societies view certain things as more morally correct than another. Schweder argues that we should not draw a conclusion based on a moral breach because we do not have an understanding of that society and therefore cannot identify
Any term or jargon that would cast a negative light onto God must not be used. Negative language about God results in idolatry and a minimizing of God and His attributes. Along with the positive insights of Pantheism, there are also some negative criticisms that one must consider. First the Pantheists believe that man does not truly exist as a separate being from God. The Pantheists believe that God exists but man does not truly exist.
Analysis of Protestant Reformation Reasons What were the religious, social, economic, political and cultural reasons of the Reformation? To explain why did the Reformation happen, historians usually start with the impact of Martin Luther’s religious ideas and his effect on the society. However Reformation is something which has to be covered from various aspects, for instance, it can be seen as an economic protest against the Church’s eager to fleece its religious folk, or as a political uprising of the German princes to confine the authority of the Church in their country, as it was regarded as a foreigner institution which was based in Rome. The Reformation was also closely related to cultural reasons such as the notion of nationalism. The Renaissance, which was one of the main catalysts of the Reformation rejected the blind obedience and encouraged innovation, focusing on the potential within every human being.
Intense criticism of the Catholic Church, and in particular of the Pope, resulted in a swell of reformist thought. The religious aspects of the Reformation were accompanied by ambitious political leaders who sought to manipulate the Reformation as a means through which to expand their power and influence. Arguably, the Reformation was initiated by Martin Luther’s ninety-five theses on a church door in Wittenberg, Germany, in the year 1517. These theses were highly controversial in their nature due to the questioning of Roman Catholic doctrine as well as a number of practices that had been followed by the church for centuries. As such, the Martin Luther, the once humble Augustinian monk from Germany, became a key historical figure of the Reformation.

Barbara Diefendorf's book, The Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre is a window into the struggle of religion and secular power during the Protestant Reformation. Beyond the social elitism, mob mentality is an ever-present force that is ignited during the Religious Wars. Differences in religion are a contributor to factional tensions. Manipulation by religious leaders and misunderstanding between the two religious sects’ practices create this religious tension. Although Protestants and Catholics share the core teachings of Christianity, a struggle for secular power, feelings of tribalism, and conflicting religious ideals not only solidify the schism between these two sects of Christianity, but escalated these tensions to bloodshed.
Democratic processes are not however equivalent to moral processes; nor do they necessarily yield moral results, they can in some instances provide an aura of legitimacy to repressive regimes which ignore the rights of minorities. So if governments - even
