Chaucer wrote about corrupt church officials and religious members, not about the ones who actually served the Lord with mind, heart and soul, so there could have been people that were entirely committed to living a moral life due to religion and its
Everyone’s view of euthanasia is different. Some think it is best for what the patients want and give them that, others have their religious values to speak out against assisted death. Religions like Christianity and Catholics believe that assisted suicide violates the sanctity of life. The Mormon communities believe “Euthanasia is condemned. Anyone who takes part in euthanasia, including assisted suicide, is regarded as having violated the commandments of God” (Religion and Spirituality 1).
They both seem to believe religion is a false sanctuary for people to have hope in. Didion states, "Of course we would all like to "believe" in something, like to assuage our private guilts in public causes, like to lose our tiresome selves…" Didion believes people run to religion to lighten the weight of their moral burdens and is just an illusion. She believes morality is too abstract to be defined by a religion but is necessary for people, so they have something to believe in. Rushdie is much harsher with his beliefs. He does agree with Didion that religion is a delusion, but he believes that religion has cause an immense number of problems.
Many religious philosophers have observed that the act of taking a human life is not only a wrong to the individual but to the humanity as a whole, irrespective of the circumstances. The views of the religious philosophers can be accepted to a point, but they fail to explain how does a person suffering from acute pain without having any hope of recovery is jilted of any ineffaceable right to opt out of their crestfallen

In summary, "stop and frisk" should not be a law anymore because it does not help our community, in fact, it ruins it. The primary reason that shows why to stop and frisk ought not to exist as a law is because guiltless individuals are getting accused of unsafe individual activities. Nevertheless, people still believe that "stop and frisk" protect them and that people from different races are a danger to the society. What people are claiming is false claims because it is not proven by actual statistics. Some people still think that "stop and frisk" is a law that helps bring peace to the nations.
b. good and evil are illusions Another move is to deny P4 and say that there is no evil in the world. One can do this by saying that morality is an illusion -- by being a sort of nihilist. Rejoinder: This, too, is a solution most theists are unwilling to make.
Through this we can see how religion is necessary in shaping one’s identity and losing it would mean an inability to identify with that particular race or culture. Religion is not just a way of life but it determines identity, familial ties and your place in the
One of the main objections to autonomy-based justifications of physician-assisted suicide (PAS) that Gill talks about is that many people believe it does not promote autonomy, but instead is actually taking it away (366). First, it is important to clarify what autonomy means. According to Gill, it is the ability of a person to make big decisions regarding their own life (369). Opponents of PAS argue that it takes away a person’s ability to make these big decisions and so it is intrinsically wrong for them to choose to take their own life.
