Abani shows that society pressured him into seeing someone die. They did it to try to teach him a lesson, when in reality it didn't gain Abani anything. Society however, was being pressured by their religion, and what they thought was right and wrong. Hughes was persuaded into following what he saw others do, due to pressure. Hughes was one of the few kids who really wanted to see Jesus, but ended up lying to not keep his aunt and other adults waiting.
"(Hawthorne 3) The townspeople were curious why he wore a veil while he was going down the stairs. Which made him mysterious to the people because they did not know what he had done to wear that "crape". It seems that they never truly understood or apologized for their actions, towards the end, it closes with the frightful thought that the minister’s face still lays behind the veil even when dead. Other insights believe the veil acted as a mirror, making the townspeople more apprehensive of their own sins. As well as, not judging another human being immediately for their mistakes and focusing on
This upset Okonkwo who lashed out causing Nwoye to leave and never come back. In the novel Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, Nwoye was able to stand up to his father as a result of two religions colliding. Although they were father and son, Okonkwo and Nwoye were never very close because of how different they were. “Nwoye knew that it was right to be masculine and to be violent, but somehow he still preferred the stories that his mother used to tell…” (Achebe 53). This shows that even though Nwoye didn’t share the same
“It does, sir, it does; and it tells me that a minister may pray to God without he have golden candlesticks upon the altar..it hurt my prayer sir, it hurt my prayer.”(1277) John Proctor does not like having Reverend Parris as minister of salem. Proctor openly says that he does not like how Parris seems to only care about money and his own well being and reputation as seen with the golden candlesticks. However, this does not hide that fact that John Proctor regularly skips church and leads people to question his devoutness to the Puritan lifestyle. Proctor dislikes Parris because he is only self interested in that all he cares about is his money and his well being. Although others see this as well, they also believe that Proctor is not a devout puritan.
After Tom Walker had worked for the devil, Tom became a violent churchgoer. He prayed aloud, which showed that he was not a humble person(Irving, 1824, page 8). Other church members were quiet prayers which showed that they were humble. Before he knew the devil, he was not religious, which made the devil able to take his soul(Irving, 1824, page 3). In the end Tom lost his battle against the Devil because he thought he could save himself, but he could not save himself from the devil(Irving, 1824, page 9).
Although, Giles Corey was accused he refused to admit nor deny being a part of witchcraft resulting in a harsh punishment. An example from the play “He would not answer aye or nay to his indictment; for if he denied the charge they’d hang him surely, and auction out his property. So he stand mute, and died Christian under the law. And so his sons will have his farm.” (135) this shows Giles denied the choices to keep his land so his sons would not lose their home. Finally, through John Proctor tries to tell the truth about Abigale and the girls, Elizabeth Proctor supporting her husband choice even though they have children to raise, and Giles Corey rather be pressed than lie about being a part of witchcraft it is clear the fundamental subject is courage.
While the chorus of men are unable to believe Cassandra due to the curse, the men are also ‘blind’ and do not suspect Clytaemestra of wanting to kill her husband. In the play of “Agamemnon”, the title character is metaphorically blind. He is unable to see that his actions have consequences that will affect him in the future. Due to his actions during the Trojan War, and his actions when he returns home, Agamemnon cannot foresee or prevent his own death. His death in turn causes a chain reaction that affects every major character in the play.
People said he existed, but Jem and I had never seen him” (Harper Lee 10). This quote helps explain that Boo is locked up because Scout and Jem, as well as most people in town, have never seen Boo inside of the house or outside of the house. They also will not meet Boo because they are scared of him. During the story they explain that when something happens in the town, Boo is to blame. This quote helps explain some of the crimes or scary acts, “People said he went out at night when the moon was down, and peeped in windows… people’s chickens and household pets were found mutilated” (Harper Lee 10).
The next point in which Nwoye seeks for a new him in his christianity life where Okonkwo almost loses it with him. But because of Okonkwo’s authority it’s extremely hard for him to direct his own son in the right direction away from the disgraceful religion.

But he realizes Okonkwo his dad betrayed him by killing his adopted brother.
His own crucible starts when he first wonders what his wife and is reading and why she hides it from. Later in the story she gets arrested for witchcraft and Giles sort of blames himself for that. In the last part of the book Corey is questioned about who else he knows that is involved with witchcraft and if he is involved with witchcraft. The authorities try and torture the information out of him but like the quote said he did not talk he stayed mute. Giles life is put on the line between life and his faith.
Eliezer was very close to god and wanted to learn anything he could. Once he was taken away from his home, he began losing faith in god and lost all hope. Eliezer stopped praying and he believed that god was unjust. Eliezer felt as though god was uncaring and so he stopped believing in him. His view on god changed juristically throughout Night.
“I come to see what mischief your uncle’s brewin’ now.” John Proctor says this to Abigail when she asks why he has come to town. Proctor is no saint. The uncle he is referring to is Reverend Parris, the minister of his parish or town. John Proctor has three key reasons why he doesn’t stand behind Parris. First, he is displeased at how much Parris speaks of hell in his sermons.
She was a part of the faction that prevented Thomas Putnam’s brother from becoming the minister of the town. The Putnam’s are very upset about this and Mrs. Putnam also accuses Rebecca of murder. Rebecca is also upset at Reverend Parris because he refuses to preach to the children, even though they seem to be possessed by the devil. She also doesn’t support Parris’ idea to bring Reverend Hale to Salem to help with the witchcraft because she believes that it will send the whole town into arguments and thinking that something is seriously wrong. She believes it would be better to just pray and let the doctor try and save Betty.
In the film, the director puts light on this issue by showing the real life event of how the father of a church was beaten by the army men and one day taken away, for opening up to the people of his community about the unnecessary violence they were facing. The lack of a religious leader took away the remaining hope that Chava had left. The father was one of the pillars of support that Chava and rest of the society had. This happens to be a major trouble because the people believed in God a lot, and they were somewhat convinced that all this would soon be over and that God was with them. But as the religious leader disappeared from the society, much of the hope went with
Because I cannot have another in my life!” and to rip up his confession paper, because he put a lot of respect to his name and did not want the confession hung on the door of the church. In the Crucible, John Proctor tries to save everyone from the vendetta of the afflicted girls by admitting his
