Another reason that the confederate was banned is because people thought it was a rebellious flag. They thought the confederate flag was banned because they found it offensive. because the government didn’t like it because they thought it was a rebel banner and didn’t want it to start anything with anyone else so they banned it so there was no problem with anyone else or anything else. Also because people want it to be back up because some people don’t like it down or banned. Another reason they outlawed the flag is because it wasn’t showing any respect for people that fought in a war and got no respect for people that died.
Therefore, when members of their mission are mocked and killed, it is viewed as a deliberate attack on their faith. Moreover, Father Paul Ragueneau described the Iroquois as “enemies of the Faith” as a result of this attack. Because of these views, the French saw this attack as “[venting] their rage on the two Fathers…”. They did not understand the intricacies of the Mourning Wars at this time because they were completely different from the wars that they were used to. The French fought wars for economic power and territory while the Iroquois did not prioritize this.
In other words, Bacon is saying that Berkeley violated his power and, as a result, lost a vast amount of his colony. In addition, Berkeley lost a great amount of his colony because he protected the Indian land, limiting many settlers the opportunity to obtain land and their liberty. Liberty during 1676 meant owning land and is why Bacon fought for their opportunity to obtain
The first contact between the Natives and puritans was for trade and diplomacy only. The puritans though that they needed to teach the native their religion, but they where still too outnumbered by the natives to try that until after the war. The puritans were very hostile and they did not let the natives into their colonies. They were racist and they even robbed some of the natives graves. The natives were relatively chill, but they did have their faults, considering people just came and invaded their land.
Puritans believed humans to be inherently evil, needing to work to earn God’s grace. The only way to do this was to make a person’s life completely centered around God, devoid of any corruption or worldliness. This was the reason for their move to America. Unsurprisingly, this train of thought also made its way into their writing, which has a style known as Puritan Plain Style. However, this way of thinking was not welcomed by the Church of England, leading them to move to the American colonies.
If someone were to tell another person that their belief system is wrong, of course they would most likely be reluctant to agree with that statement. The hostility of the Natives is best understood through their resistance against the Spaniards. The original inhabitants were reluctant to agree with all that the Spanish. But their weaponry was no match for the Spaniards’ advanced technology. The Nahua people and other indigenous people were not strong enough to battle these conquerors.
“A hypocrite despises those whom he deceives, but has no respect for himself. He would make himself look bad to if he can” by William Hazlitt. One of the main ideas from the Canterbury tales by Geoffrey Chaucer hypocrites. There Are Said so that way because they do not practice what they preach or they lie to people and tell them the contrary of what the bible (in the Christian religion says to do). Some synonyms for the word hypocrite are pretender, deceiver, liar, fraud and phony.
The Native Americans and Whites were extremely biased and against each other. The white people were seen as mean spirited and selfish to the Indians. The Indians were seen as stupid to the whites and often got taken advantage of throughout this era. Unlike the indians, the white people were not very religious. The native americans saw spirits and gods in almost everything, while the Europeans did not think the same way.
These religious references build upon each other to develop Burgess’ notion that God created humans with free will, and how this leaves humankind flawed and prone to evil tendences. Though, despite this, humanity’s free will is the most important thing to both God and humanity itself. Burgess sees humans as beings
He cites Ephesians 2:3 which states, we are now born deserving God’s anger, with an injured nature so that our will is unable to keep us from sin except for the grace of God. Our defective state is punishment because of Adam’s free choice that made humans sinful. Therefore, we are either unable to will or unable to know how to do the right any more. Augustine argues that we are no longer free to choose right and wrong, because we are slaves to sin. Freedom can only be re-attained through God, through Whom, by grace, we shall be free indeed.
