He also encounters another god that he is actually able to see with his own two eyes which, ultimately confuses Antonio even more. He states “Why had the power of God failed to cure my uncle?
An article written Christopher Craig by called “’Nobody’s a bum all their life’: Teaching the Class Through William Kennedy’s Ironweed” suggests that “Francis does not make his personal decisions in a moral vacuum. Capitalist interest set the terms and conditions for these choices” (32). Disagreeably, I think his decisions are completely made in such “moral vacuum”, because of the religious family he was in when he was growing up. Doing “the right thing” and Catholicism go hand in hand.

Wiesel reveals the truth that when surrounded by many horrific events, it can lead to one 's loss of religious faith. This is exemplified in Elie’s lack of following religious traditions, many questioning God’s existence, and people believing that they no longer need God to help them survive these brutal conditions.
For example, Reverend Hale, after questioning John Proctor about why his last born son isn't baptized, he gets,"I see no light of God in the man"(1242) as a comment. Hale response seriously with, "The man's ordained, therefore, the light of God is in him." (1242) Hale was new, so he didn't understand that the preacher John was talking about, Parrish, was a greedy,prideful, and selfish man, though the audience and John knew. Outward appearances in people may be extremely contrasted to the inward truth of the person...
If that is the reason, then he would have to hide that from his church in order to not feel humiliated. The reason why Mr. Hooper has ambiguous sin is because he opens his first sermon about "secret sins". The vindication I think he didn't want his fiancée to find out was
Here readers are shown that Goodman Brown is trying to stay and stick with Puritanism.

Fact and physical artifacts may tell that a man once existed in a land but it can tell nothing of how that man felt, myth however
Thomas Pain’s catalytic words of the modern theology Thomas Pain argues for a more individualistic form of monotheism while the puritans believe that only their god should be prayed to. The puritan religion was unique from the rest of the world because they held the Sabbath in true Old Testament fashion. Thomas in his last offering to his fellow citizens of all nations does not hold back his religious believes in this very unpopular (at the time) literature. He states “In the general wreck of superstition, “false systems of government and false theology, we lose sight of morality, of humanity and of the theology that is true.”

On page 630, it tells how the racial stereotype stigma is prevalent in the United States. With a growing epidemic this large and this severe there could only be one true way to vanquish this problem, as stated earlier if we truly want to rid the world of the harsh stereotypes within races then we must start
