From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.

When Hale entered the story he believed that he was going to be the savior of the town ridding them of witches. When Rebecca Nurse and John Proctor were arrested Reverend Hale was deeply shaken with his beliefs. Hale near the end of the story he tells Elizabeth that you should not have religion when it brings you harm but you should keep faith in God. Reverend Hale near ending of The Crucible is the complete opposite of the Reverend Hale that first entered the story, because he came in believing he was the authority on how to find witches, then he was shaken by arrest of Rebecca and John, and finally by him telling others to throw away religion when it brings harm to
Yet abandons her when he becomes bored of her. Even though Hagar essentially becomes obsessed with Milkman, attempting to murder him each month, the reader cannot help but to feel sympathy and sorrow for her, as she has in essence dedicated her whole self and life to Milkman simply to be rejected. The use of the biblical connection allows for a higher quality understanding as Hagar as a character and therefore allows the reader to understand her situation. Just as Hagar is a maid in the bible, in the novel Hagar is a part or the poor community. She lives in a house with no electricity and limited resources, Milkman is virtually her only hope of escaping her low status in society, therefore, it is justified that when her chance of a better future in taken away from her she becomes erratic and

In chapter seven in the Outsiders Ponyboy talks to Randy about how the Socs and Greasers hate each other and in the end, Ponyboy made Randy feel better of himself. With all that Ponyboy experienced, he knows that everyone has some potential for being good and that Randy would have saved the kids in the church too. Randy mentions that the world hates him, but Ponyboy says that he hates the world and he needs to change that. In the talk with Randy Ponyboy says “So it doesn’t do any good, the fighting and the killing. It doesn’t prove anything.” Beforehand Ponyboy talks about how he is sick of fighting and that fighting won’t make anyone win, this is further proven by the fact that nothing changed after the rumble.
At the very beginning of Elie Wiesel's Night, you meet Elie for and he wants to learn more about religion, but his father doesn't want him to. The city they live in, Sighet, was a little town that had no conflict ever, until things started to happen. Germans came into town and slowly drew the people out of town to camps.

In To Kill a Mockingbird, churches prove that they want no part of helping one another solve racial issues. When Calpurnia brings Jim and Scout to her church, she didn’t expect anyone to say anything about it, given what their father was doing, but this proved to be untrue. Almost as soon as she steps in the door with them, one member, named Lulu tells Calpurnia,”You ain’t got no business bringin’ white chillun here-they got their church, we got our’n.”(Lee 158). This goes to show that not matter who you were, members of the opposite church were not supportive. Even with Scout and Jim’s father representing Tom Robinson, who was a member of that church, they were not welcome in the colored church.
