For centuries, human begins have demonstrated countless ways to be cruel to other groups od people, especially during times of war. Some ethnic groups have been targeted just because they were born in a “wrong” culture. They apply slavery just because the different religion, some people don´t survive… one example its about Anne Frank… Anne Frank born on June 12, 1929, she was a German-Jewish teenager, like her family also Jewish. Anne receive a gift, it was a diary, she was excited about her gift, she always want it. Few days after her birthday started the World War II.
This attracted people to meetings at her home, on Mondays to talk about Cotton’s Sunday sermon. Later Anne went to far as to teach that outward obedience to the scriptures was unnecessary to show a relationship with God, which is called antinomianism. She also taught that God had given her a revelation that superseded the Bible. The leaders having become aware of this, followed procedure and attempted to council her.

Wright also recalls that his “Granny maintained a hard religious regime. There were prayers at sunup and sundown, at the breakfast table and dinner table, followed by Bible verse from each member of the family” (111). Religion was once again used by Granny to maintain control in the household. Since religion --particularly the way that Granny practices it-- is a strict ordeal, it is a relatively simple way to orchestrate control. As demonstrated by Wright in Black Boy, the oppression by the white population is exacerbated by oppressive religious practices within households.

The importance of experience is clearly expressed in the Wife of Bath’s Prologue and is the reflected in the Wife of Bath’s Tale. The Wife of Bath makes a defense for her “experience” and five marriages in her prologue before explaining each of her marriages. She uses scripture, in a somewhat distorted way, but scripture none the less, to defend her actions. She uses the example of Solomon to back up her claim for marriage by stating, “old Solomon, I think he had more wives than one” (173). The irony is that she is using the same Bible of the church that she is rebelling against, but again both the Wife and the church at the time used scriptures out of context to reach a desired societal
She begins the book as a school teacher, “Every day I teach, every night I tutor. My head aches, always, and my thoughts are an old lady’s. Four years serving that school and I feel my youth and strength draining out of me.” (Chekhov 14).
