Danforth was the main cause of all of the heartbreak and struggle endured in Salem. It seems very hypocritical of Danforth to critize Procter for not being a good Christian, yet Danforth does not value human life enough to put his tail between his legs and admit his
One theme of Night is that inhumanity can cause of loss of faith. Correspondingly Wiesel was starting to ask questions to his believes and he not sure what he believes anymore.He use to be very religious.”Blessed be God name why,but why I bless him.

No individual, however, deserves the suffering these accused witches are forced to experience. Their society turned its back on them; they are beaten, tortured, humiliated, excommunicated. These previously God-loving citizens were warped for straying from their religion’s ideals. At one point, Reverend Hale approaches Proctor and his wife begging the question, “. .
Muslims and Jews were forced to endure agonizing tortures and penalties when they did nothing wrong. They were either tried, tortured, or dying by the lots, so there was a significant decrease in population Spain. This reflects badly on Spain because it proves that even with these drastic and brutal measures, they were failed leaders who were incapable of managing their country. Spain also became financially drained from their conquests to convert people, and their economy was slowly declining due to a decline in trade and horrid leaders. Spain’s attempt for the prohibition of Enlightenment ideas also caused them to be lacking in technological or educational advancements, showing the unwise decisions of the leaders.
It is a stage where we fill the brokenness in our lives. In my own personal life, I have experienced disorientation in many different forms, whether it was something that I did wrong or that I was wronged by. I was upset with God and I constantly questioned his existence and love, I was confused at why this would happen to me, but ultimately I was alone. People thought that pointing me to church and the bible would’ve helped me but as I sat there and listened to the pastor or the counselor telling me what was wrong it never helped clarify any of the emotions I was
Responsibility Over Living Sigmund Freud once said, “Most people do not really want freedom because freedom involves responsibility and most people are frightened of responsibility.” This quote in my opinion means that even though most people say they want freedom to do whatever they want, they really don’t because they’re too scared to accept responsibility for their actions. The character John hurt a lot of people in this novel because he is too afraid to be responsible. He would rather have a party than take care of a sick man’s house. He is not a good role model. In The Pigman by Paul Zindel, the character John Conlan’s philosophy on life is too irresponsible and selfish.
Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not. People in Waknuk are punished each other as well as from the belief spills of the “Old People” have left, however, these principles made the Waknuk society fall. Therefore, people in Waknuk should have acceptance to deviation and mutant people rather than send to the Fringes or kill them because they could lose talented people that could rise their
People always get misjudged and want to say who or what a person is like before they even meet him or her. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, has many examples of misjudging people, and some of those people could be better, or worse, than what that person judged. Most of these characters in the book do not have the sense to meet someone before they judge them. Even if a character knows a character, they still judge, and they judge wrong most of the time. People just don’t have enough sense, or manners, to not judge.
When these people were being treated in such malicious ways, they started to believe that God wasn’t really there for them. They felt as if He wasn 't there to protect them. Sometimes, they started to rebel against their own religion and turn to their worst enemies for faith. Throughout Elie’s memoir, Night, Elie shows that many people, including himself, lost faith during their stay at the concentration camps. Many other victims of the concentration camps lived to see such tragedies that they began to lose hope in God, as well as he did.
Eliezer has not only lost faith in god but he has begun to feel hatred towards him for letting innocent men and women be slaughtered and burned.

This connects to the way Americans felt like the traditional Native American way was wrong because they didn’t understand it. People in general tend to fear what they don’t understand; which connects Herman and the story of Native Americans because they both were misunderstood and people were afraid of both things to the fact that they wanted to eliminate what Native and Herman had become. Native Americans and Herman can also be compared together because they both went through hardships that most people or other races wouldn’t have survived. Even the physical and mental things that Herman and Native Americans went through can be compared because they both were brutal and unbearable but both found a way to fight
Most believed that the church failed them and were not able to save them from this punishment. However, the church suffered from the plague as well. The church lost members of the clergy and priests but couldn’t find any to replace them to meet the high demand. It started to convince people to question the beliefs that the Catholic Church taught to them. The church lost the respect and its influence to the people of Western Europe (Thompson 350).
