People cannot change who they are attracted to and people cannot change who they are even if they wanted to. People cannot just tell themselves that they are attracted to someone, love is not a choice. America is a free country but we still judge people and we still get judged. "Same-sex marriage is a civil right,"(Pro) people say, be who you are, but then when you open up to them and show them the real you most of them you lose your friendship with and they do not want to be there for you anymore, it is sad trying to be who you are but then you just get judged for it. "Prior to the ruling, 37 states and the District of Columbia had legalized gay
Individuals feel that no problems exist about racial equality or social injustices.Some argue that protesting the national anthem is like protesting the country and our veterans. Kneeling is not about disrespecting the military or the veterans. It is about trying to get the country, people in government, to open their eyes to all of the turmoil going on around the world. People are distraught, upset and sick of the violence, police brutality, social and racial injustices going on. Just as Martin L. King Jr. protested against the racial injustices years ago and non violently protested, students are finding other ways to stand up for what they believe in and what should be fair treatment for all.
Although the natives lead different lives than the stereotypical Christian American citizen, it does not give the United States government the right to strip them of their homeland and resources. The aborigines have a vast set of lore that many of are unaware of. It is wrong of Jackson to assume that one must be Christian in order to be civilized. Jackson claims that the natives, upon settling westward, will have access to countless benefits provided by the government. However, disregarding the natives’ religion, culture, and way of life does exactly the opposite.
Football players should not be punished for their opinion and issue in which they protest in the United States because it brings awareness to society issues, use social status, and even though people disagree that the protest should not happen during the National Anthem. However, it the best time to show the fans what issues they are protesting. This act of protest is nothing new to America, but it has only just become an outrage due, to the involvement of the president and many other average citizens that claim it to be an unfit way to protest. The first instance of this act dates all the way back to World War II, when the Supreme Court voted down a demand that the flag should be saluted during the Pledge of Allegiance (Sachs 1). Then time goes by until 1996 when basketball star Abdul-Rauf was suspended for the length of one game, due to him refusing to stand for the national anthem for a religious purpose.
In this sense Igbo do not know what is lawfully right or wrong in the white man’s courts. That is why the leaders of the village are surprised when they are imprisoned after burning the missionary church. The action by the missionaries in not considering Igbo laws and customs in their hostile takeover shows that they do not care about Igbo tradition or culture. 14 | P a g e Rather, they appear to be so keen on forcing their own culture on the Igbo that they do not see that they are destroying Igbo culture and that they could learn from the Igbo to better understand them and their way of life. This lack of consideration of the Igbo and their well-being from the Europeans further creates the drift that exists between the two cultures and drives them further apart from where they first started.
While both philosophers’ writing can be very useful to the government in some ways. The leader should not be cruel or mean to the people but should know when to tough. The big difference is how they disagree most strongly on how a government should run and how they believe in war. They also disagree on when mercy should be given and how the money they own should be spent. Neither one of the ideas that they have for the government will work for the world today, because the world is not as good and peaceful as Lao-tzu describes in Tao-Te Ching, and not as chaotic or mean as Machiavelli says in The Prince.
We are constantly reminded of the “true meaning” of patriotism, but do any of us know what it really means? America’s founders, the men and women that sacrificed their lives for our future and freedom, the men and women that gave us a reason to be patriotic would think we have lost our ways if they saw us today. It is time to refresh today’s Americans memory. Patriotism is not love for the mere scenery in your country. Patriotism is not trusting your leaders blindly.
Although the law could be very beneficial for the development of the country, the Church is against many of these because of its beliefs about sex and marriage. It believes in values such as chastity, modesty, and purity. Having the RH Law would mean that people could be “unchaste” in their perspective without having to worry about the responsibility that comes with parenthood. In addition to that, there is no divorce in the
In 2011, Ivan Eland wrote an article deploring Americans to pay more attention to the use of the words patriotism and militarism. Eland states, “ The United States was founded on principles of anti-militarism, permanent U.S. military meddling abroad was avoided until after World War II.” Patriotism means to love a country, nowadays it means to serve the country and wave the flag. What many United States citizens don’t understand is that supporting the armed forces is not patriotic, it is nationalistic. A patriotic citizen asks questions before going to war; a nationalistic citizen supports the government and its decisions no matter what (Eland, 2011). Eland proposes a solution by not taunting military people, but by realizing how militaristic America has become, distinguishing patriotism from militarism, and decoupling the military from militarism.
If gay marriage was legal, they would not face such problems and discriminations, they would get better attitudes from people. Governments do not accept gay marriage because they are afraid of the community’s upcoming acts. Governments have a big mistake in ignoring gay people’s human rights because of religious reasons. Religious ideas of people must not affect the legalization of gay marriage and child adoption. Governments exist to provide equality to all of the people living in their community, ignoring their race, sex, religion and sexual orientation.
