“Kakure Kirishitans”, or “Hidden Christians”, continued to practice the religion underground after the government began to arrest, and even execute, others. Despite being detracted from contact with proper Christian methodology, the Kakure Kirishitans nevertheless embody the influence of early European teachings, and are a symbol of Japan’s first encounter with the West. Ultimately, Japan did have a strict attitude towards those
When Jesuit missionaries attempted to enter Japan, he got suspicious. Instead of letting them in, he decided to close Japan from any Christians and/or Jesuits along with other foreigners. Foreigners were sharply limited going to Japan. Emperor Ieyasu wanted Japan only for Japanese. (Score for Question 2: ___ of 4 points) 2.
Two of those things focused on the reasoning for the rising tensions. Which I’ve mentioned.. And the last thing focused on how the colonist planned to respond to the Stamp Act. The colonist unanimously agreed to stop supporting the British Empire commerce. The same exact commerce that aimed to tax the colonies and unconstitutionally hurt the colonies economics. So to turn the something that hurt them against their mother land, they planned to stop buying or shipping any products to the British Empire.
In my opinion, the United states was not justified in its policy of keeping Japanese Americans in internment camps. These people were Americans just like those who chose to put them in camps. By singling out these people in camps, the government essentially legitimized racism against them. Most of them had committed no crimes against the United States. Most of them had not involved in the planning of any crimes against the United States.
People believed that since those innocent lives were killed, it was okay to confine innocent people to protect the country. This information about how much the Japanese were harmed makes me believe Roosevelt wasn’t justified. He harmed so many people at once, and there is no proof that is did anything. The Japanese lost everything during this time, and most of them were innocent and had nothing to do with Japan anymore. They were just of Japanese descendants.
If someone was suspected of not following the dominate faith in the area he or she could be persecuted (Wiewora). Their local governments’ set forth to regulate even the minutest parts of life. Like, in when the puritans migrated to Massachusetts Bay Colony there was a law that regulated which kind to lace was acceptable. That was because the settlers realized that there was a lot at stake and that they could afford to have anyone stray away from the status quo even if that meant regulating every aspect of their lives. Everyone had to have faith not only in each other, the mission, and in
Finally, if they had just used smaller bombs, it might have been enough to push Japan past their tipping point of following the Bushido code, a code that says that they should never surrender, something that proved costly to both sides, as the Japanese used kamikaze throughout the captures of Midway, Okinawa and Iwo Jima. Because Truman could use other, available options, he did not possess the right to resort to dropping the atomic bombs. Even though America warned Japan about the bombs, they still should not have used them. Japan had no idea of the grand effects caused by the atomic bombs. For instance, when the bomb was dropped the radius of the blast was many times larger than any bomb before it.
Common sense tells us that they have the same code of bushido and them fighting would make no sense if you lived in kamakura time period because japanese citizens were familiar with the bushido code. This means that they broke the code and still didn’t have to commit suicide.. All of the rules all fit and did not contradict until they fight another clan with the same rules. Some people would say that the warriors are basically committing suicide by going to battle but they do not add the fact that some samurai will live after battle and be honored. Honored for what? Breaking the single most important rule of seppuku and not getting punished.
And as King mentions in the excerpt, he says that if he lived, “in a communist country today where certain principles dear to the Christian faith are suppressed, I believe I would openly advocate disobeying these anti-religious laws.” What he means by this is if he was in that country where they suppress religious acts, he would have prefered to break the law to follow his religion. However in a country like the united states, we are allowed to believe in any religion, especially when it involves peaceful protest. In another Allusion, this time from a recent period. King then brings a dark image based on recent events: “There have been more unsolved bombings of Negro homes and churches in Birmingham than any city in this nation.” Where he continued to talk about how these are hard cold facts about how African American’s are treated in this country. King does this to make the reader question if what people are doing the to African Americans are the right thing.
When speaking poorly about Muhammad Muslims face punishments resulting in death. (Sharia law,2017) The first amendment is the way it is because, citizens should not be punished for practicing the religion of their choice. Also, coming into America Muslims should not expect us to accommodate them. George Carlin once said “Religion is like a pair of shoes… find ones that fit you but don’t make me wear your shoes. (goodeads,2017)” Leaving the constitution as it is will insure that religion in America is
