In the case of the Protestants in Northern Ireland, historical incidents of violence and massacre have been mythologised and used as the template for understanding modern Protestant-Catholic relations. One event that has coloured perceptions of Protestant / Catholic relations was the massacres of Protestants that took place during the Catholic uprising of 1641. During this uprising Irish rebels in Ulster killed and expelled several thousand Protestant settlers argued Bardon 1992. This event, particularly the massacre of eighty Protestant men, women and children at Portadown, has repeatedly been used by Protestants (most notably the Reverend Ian Paisley) in making comparisons between Catholic behavior at that time and the contemporary actions of the IRA as stated by Crighton and Mac
The crusades failed in their chief goal : the conquest of the Holy land. They also left a bitter legacy of religious hatred behind them. In the middle east, both Christians and Muslims committed appalling atrocities in the name of religion. This is important because that means that there were negative impact on the crusades. This is important because the results of that are negative, this is because muslims and Christian never agreed on the
Tim’s expectations were not the case; instead Sam dies by being accused incorrectly of stealing his own cattle to teach other troops a lesson about how serious war is. The unecessary death of Sam inspires Tim to go neutral because Sam was not rewarded for valor and had no glory to his name. Tim doesn’t like that or want that so he chooses neither side of the
Reader Response of Chapter 2 of A Different Mirror: A History of Multicultural America by Ronald Takaki In the book, A Different Mirror: A History of Multicultural America, Ronald Takaki gives an anecdote about how the lives of both the Indians and the Irish were dramatically destroyed and how they were even almost extinct because of the violent and corrupted acts of the English. Moreover, the English expansion led to the “making of an English-American identity based on race” (Takaki 26). Furthermore, the Irish were the first people to be considered as savages. The English felt as if the Irish did not have any respectful manners or obedience to God. As a result, the English wanted to teach them to obey their laws.
Back down? They’re so wrapped up in a different culture – what I’m trying to say is – they’re in the wrong culture; the culture that promotes killing an officer. Young people use the legacy of racism as an excuse, it’s not a race issue at all. The fact is the brute attacked me, I couldn’t get my taser so I shot him and I had to keep shooting or else I would
William Wallace is a symbol of patriotism and courage in Scotland, though most of his fights were fueled by anger and hatred towards the English. Lanark was burned to the ground because earlier that day, his love interest was murdered. His actions in battle were often thought of as brutal, but many are believed to be legend. When in Lanark its been said that he used the skin of englishman to make a scabbard for his claymore and an english noble from the battle of stirling bridge was used for sword handles. William Wallace was a greatly feared man by English troops for he was known as a brutal heartless knight who didn 't seem to believe in mercy.
The Problem of Evil The main problem with evil is “this is a serious objection to the existence of God” (Kreeft, P. 2013). This objection to God is destroying people, lives, families, and relationships. Evil makes people do bad things, even good people fall victim to evil thoughts, actions, and words. It works against people to cause problems between families, parents, husbands and wives, siblings, and other loved ones. Evil is defined by Oxford Dictionary (2015), as “profound immorality, wickedness, and depravity, especially when regarded as a supernatural force: the world is stalked by relentless evil.” People do not accept God as their savior and end up living a life of destruction ruled by evil thoughts, actions, and words.
The weight of blame on the Christians for starting the fire only added insult to injury. There were many excuses as to why Romans scorned the Christians, such as misconceptions. The people of Rome did not understand the practices of the believers in Christ, and thus believed the only solution of the matter was to reject the latter from society. Another reason why Rome generally tended to persecute Christians was because Rome had a religion of their own, and the refusal of participation from the Christians vexed Romans. They sensed treason, and evicted Christians from the friendly treatment the should have been granted.
Sam’s death was brutal and totally uncalled for. Sam was executed because he was falsely accused of cattle theft; “‘Timmy, get Colonel Parsons,’ he cried. ‘They’re taking me in as a cattle thief ’”(180). Tim went through great lengths to try and get him out. Sam was a great soldier on the battlefield, you would expect that he would get some telling points, but it didn’t matter.
The flaw in Cassian’s logic, as well as in the logic of utilitarianism, is that the act of killing becomes morally shaky ground. It is impossible to determine whether or not the Rebel Alliance or the Empire is more justified in their acts of “good” as they both see their rationale for killing as necessary to reach their goals and provide the most good for the most amount of people (McLarney 2018). In the eyes of the Empire, Cassian and the rest of the rebels are traitors and terrorists to the lawful regime, thus killing them weeds out instability and insubordination as punishment for attacking imperial troops. For the Rebellion, the occupation, exploitation, and oppression of people is more morally reprehensible than any act of murder they
It is clear that the Mongols committed many ruthless and brutal acts in his life, and he is one who wiped out entire villages and innocent men, women, and children. However, one aspect of their brutality, though, is more prominent than the others: the brutality towards religion and ignorance and manipulation of the human mind. In one primary source, we see that Chinggis Khan marched into a village with 20,000 men and extracted the richest 280 men in the village. He told them that they had sinned, and told them that he was the punishment of god, sent to their village to punish them for their sins. The mongols then started taking money from the rich people, as their punishment for sinning.
The Unit command could not allow one of its own to just leave. This would create moral problems, this war was unpopular, to allow one of their own to troll the streets back in America without the standard debrief would only court certain disaster. The solution turned out to be simple. Send one of their own to “chase” and apprehend Greeley. If Greeley resisted and killed the chaser, CID could move in quickly and kill Greeley.
Revolutionary War One cause of the Revolutionary War was the Boston Massacre. The four graves and nickname “Horrid Massacre” shows that the colonists were angry and enraged at the British troops for killing innocent people (Document 3). The colonists believed that British troops should have not fired because they were unarmed and just throwing snowballs, however, from the soldier 's ' point of view, they believed that the colonists are guilty because they were throwing clubs, ice and other sharp things. Also, the colonists were telling the soldiers to fire at them thus confusing them into thinking that their commander was saying “fire”. The angry colonists sought revenge and independence against the British.
