Billy the Poet, a Nothinghead and the protagonist, explains J. Edgar Nation’s story of developing the ethical birth control pills after his experience at the Grand Rapids Zoo. Although he only intended these pills to “make monkeys in the springtime fit things for a Christian family to see” (Vonnegut 36), they were later forced onto the American people to create a better, more civilized society in an overpopulated world. Although many see no problem with ethical birth control, enforcing morality has always remained a form of government oppression, which suppresses a person’s individuality. In fact the government is controlling “not birth but sexuality” (Meek, Reed, Ploeg, & Adcock 5), which is a blatant overreach of power. In “Welcome to the Monkey House”, Kurt Vonnegut satirizes the conflict of ethics in government by producing an obscure and almost-humorous plot in the short story.

The Christian worldview is about God’s desire to fix a broken relationship between Him and humans, His beloved creation. Humans rebelled against God and cannot save themselves because of their sinful nature. God is a perfect, holy, and righteous God, who cannot tolerate sin and evil. Numbers 14:18 (NIV) says, “The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.” Because humans corrupted themselves, they are unable to enter into heaven.

Firstly, a devious serpent in the garden often times depicted slithering around a tree represents Eve's temptation in the Garden of Eden. The tree, pomegranate of apple suggests the temptation of eve and the fall of man.
