On Washington 's National Mall there is a monument dedicated to him and is one of the most visited spots in the nation. In addition, his face can be seen on Mount Rushmore. "The mountain itself shouts out: this is one of the greatest leaders in the history of this country, The Great Emancipator" (Stone 8). These attractions bring in hundreds and thousands of people who wish to pay their respect to the great president who created liberty and freedom a reality for all Americans.

In the early years of the television program Life is Worth Living, Bishop Sheen found other ways to make his message popular. The way to do this was to have an anticommunist message in preaching. There were a few things that Catholics and Protestants had in common and that was their love for their country. Both groups were nationalistic and in favor of their institutions . They were also of course against the same ideology.
When analysing The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson, it is evident that there are a multitude of effects on the writing and its writer. Specifically, the clash between Jon Do as a person, and the bureaucracy of the North Korean government. Marxism works to explain the struggle between social structure which pertains to the book because of an unjustly founded class system. Furthermore, Jon Do has experienced both social classes, and it is clear that Jon Do struggles with the constant conflict between his identity and who he is forced to be. Thus, Marxism can be applied to the book since Jon Do exemplifies how the North Korean government consistently imposes socialistic values, and forces citizens to abide by those existing social classes
America is a great country. It is the great melting pot of races, religions, and beliefs. Americans have freedom and rights to think independently from their neighbors.

Monuments are spread across the United States, all of which honor a memorable historical event or person. The mall of Washington D.C. contains vast amounts of statues in order to pay respects to the thousands of lives lost in wars, cherish our previous presidents and their previous achievements, or esteem previous figures who have shaped our history. For a monument to successfully honor an event or individual, the creators need to carefully consider its design, relation to visitors, and appeal. The design is important because it should be able to create a connection between the memorial and the event which it commemorates. The design of a memorial must incorporate key factors, such as names, to help honor the people and the remind the public
Thomas Jefferson was a pioneer on the topic of church and state and how those two things have no power over the other in any way, shape, or form. Jefferson explains this when he mentions “Almighty God hath created the mind free, and manifested his supreme will that free it shall remain by making it altogether insusceptible of restraint.” Jefferson believes that God created us to be free of everything, including religion. That is why Jefferson didn’t want to give up that freedom even to the government he was so strongly a part of. Jefferson then goes on to talk about how it is extremely wrong when a church forces a man to support or change his personal views just because of an outside source, Jefferson even calls it “tyrannical” some of the methods that the church had to gain control of people. Jefferson also said how it was wrong to require a public official to be of a certain religion, much like how the Baptists were afraid the John F. Kennedy would gain presidency then hand over the power to the catholic church, Jefferson also said that a man brought to power specifically for religious reasons tend to be “corrupt the principles of that very religion it is meant to encourage,” the official becomes very bias to that church that he is representing.
In the novel, Christianity’s customs contrasts to the Igbo in that the Christians accept individuals as they are and not by what they have accomplished. This can be seen with the woman that the Igbo believe has been cursed with ogbanje. Nevertheless, she is accepted into the church even though she was perceived as an underling in the Igbo society. Therefore, it is apparent that the encompassing nature of Christianity led to the fall of the Umuofian

His propaganda against the practice of the Pope to have the authority to read and interpret the Bible only and make people believe and follow it. Luther said that everyone can and should read the Bible for themselves, and have their own conclusion and faith. He had a strong criticism about the church's wealth, called its leaders corrupt and immoral. He strongly disagreed with selling indulgences and simony, when people after facing and regretting their sins had to pay large fees to be able to get to haven instead of hell. This was a e very old “tradition” of the Catholic church, but by the 16th century it became abusive.
