Freedom of speech benefits the people and lack of it is a major cause of totalitarianism. That is why freedom of speech shouldn’t be limited. Stephan was a deacon in the time of the apostales he was very bold for his religious opinion, some hated it but some loved it and even became baptized. However the Pharisees ruling the area realized they would lose control if he kept preaching so they arrested him and put him on trial. When he spoke
Andrew let silence all over the humble dinner, for without it Andrew would have raised his voice, and his blood pressure. Thomas, to break the silence, said, “I mean you have freedom of believing anything you want, unless it is the religions of the Judo-Christians, or the Muslims. This is true because they believe God gave some humans his holy word to tell others about.” (Paine, 1794, P.96) Andrew’s blood at this point came to a boil, which invoked him to ask “So none of the bible is real according to you?”
However, the system that society is presented with is “system of crime and blood” where people held as property and are deprived of basic human rights such as liberty and dignity. The church ought to change and create a system of liberty and equality instead of a “system of crime and blood”. It is impossible to build a society based on such Christianity values, liberty and equality, with “system of crime and blood.” They indeed have “the most awful responsibility of which the mind can conceive;” however, to truly do the will of God they have raise up and stand against this “system of crime and blood” and fight for equality and liberty for
America is the land of the free. According to the first amendment, every American is given the freedom to practice any religious faith. Contradicting this amendment is the Separation of Church and State, which separates the United States Government from being biased towards one religion. According to these two statements, government officials are obligated to perform their duties regardless of their faith. Many Americans believe that a person’s religious beliefs should be able to determine whether or not he or she performs the duties of a government official.
Finally, the church used a false account called The Testament of the Three Witnesses to legitimize the creation of The Book of Mormon. At the beginning of almost every copy of the Book of Mormon there is a testimony from three people, Oliver Cowdery, Martin Harris, and David Whitmer. The testimony quotes these people as having seen the golden plates, used to translate the original Book of Mormon. Later these men were excommunicated and revealed that they had lied in the testimony. Because of these facts, it is safe to say the Golden Plates may have never existed.
Although they were both christian puritans, John Eliots views were thatit was his civic duty to help the Indians by forcing his religion upon them, while Roger Williams though it was his civic duty to help the Indians get religious liberty. An example of Eliot forcing his religion on the Indians is seen when Governor John Endecott came away from the Natick settlement where John Eliot worked with the Indians amazed, he said “The Foundation is laid, and one that I verily beleeve the gates of Hell shall never prevaile against…. I could hardly refrain tears from very joy to see their diligent attention to the word first taught by one of the indians, who before his Exercise prayed…. With such reverence, zeale, good affection, and distinct utterance, that I could not but admire(Jarvis 57).”
“no religious outlook or Weltanschauung, can enjoy a privileged status, let alone be adopted as the official view of the state” I found this passage noteworthy because it demands that no religious outlook be put before another, but that is exactly what happens and has been happening, all these years. I would like to say that I think the reason there is such a lack of equality with different countries and “cultures” and why we are in constant war is because of this exact reason; religion. Most religious people always think their religion is better than another persons and this causes conflict. The countries laws reflect their religious views in the morals that they choose to have.
Martin Luther King, Jr. believed heaven and earth to be real. He believed in the supernatural, but he also knew right here and right now was real and problems now must be addressed. If asked how he knows this he would say because it has been revealed in the Bible, and could also be revealed by prayer and loving others as oneself. MLK believed the nature of man has been revealed through the teachings of Jesus, and not by class struggle like many other Prophetic Activists. Martin Luther King, Jr. called for all men to be equal, so he wanted a government that would give everyone freedom and equality under the law.
People are allowed to believe in what they choose to or they can decide to believe in nothing at all. Freedom of Religion makes a living in the United States better because in other countries there is a certain religion everyone has to follow. Freedom of Protesting is people who get together for a cause and whether its good or bad the protest should be allowed to by the government. People may create protest against you or to help you in anything they want.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. explains to the clergymen who criticized him that he is there because he was invited and he also teaches them about just an unjust laws. Dr. King says “One has not only a legal but moral responsibility to obey just laws.” To me a just law is a law that is made to be followed by all people no matter the color of your skin. He says “One has moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. Dr. King says “Actually time is neutral.
1. Was the Revised Criminal Statute 320-1 of the State of Oceana properly applied to this case? Yes. According to Revised Criminal Statute 320-1 of the state of Oceana, any person who knowingly and intentionally takes the life of another is guilty of murder.
"Should you stand for the American flag or should you kneel in protest?" A question Americans have began asking after the recent NFL national anthem kneel protest. I say, you should stand for the flag not only for pride but also what the flag stands for. As well as respect for fellow soldiers and veterans who have for fought for the flag to keep waving; but ironically, the American ideas give the right to do as you please to the flag from kneeling or even burning. Now should you really kneel for the flag in protest?
Trying to decide which of the amendments to the U.S. Constitution is the most important, is a tough question to answer. All twenty-seven amendments that have been made to The United States most sacred document ether are or were at one point important and dealt with a pressing issue or concern of the times that they were ratified. Yes, there are a few that may not seem to pertain to today’s society, but even those have a history that helped make America what it is today. To figure out which of the amendment is of the upmost importance, one would need to start by analyzing a few of the top contenders that come to mind, as well as imagining life without them. Some of the most popular amendments are of course the first two.
In the First amendment, we are guaranteed the freedom of speech, petition, assembly, religion, and press. There is three of these rights that are most important to me which are religion, speech, and assembly. We are guaranteed these rights; however, there is circumstances. First, I feel like religion is an important right because without freedom of religion, the government set religion might not be correct and would lead others away from the truth.
