The laws they fought against were laws against Christianity. People in this region wanted to maintain their religion but this was not an option because the government took it away from them (Document C). More rebels joined in the fight and soon enough in some areas the rebels almost wiped out government officials. The rebels even killed some of the government (Document D). Many people throughout the Reign of Terror were killed by a guillotine.
Sadly, the United States government on the issue of the War on Iraq has not learned the three lessons that will be discussed in this analysis. Lesson number 1, “Empathize with your enemy.” McNamara says that the government failed to understand our enemy but more importantly we failed to communicate with the leaders that we wanted to destroy. Failure to do so, led in the mass killing of millions of innocent people in Vietnam. During the Vietnam War, they thought they were fighting for their independence, while we, the United States, were fighting to enslave them. This misconception was due to the failure of communication and the failure to understand the thoughts and feelings of our opponents.
Their attempts failed and the Puritans soon became persecuted by the Church of England. Thus, they fled and came to the new world, hoping that this would be the place where they could build the shining city on a hill where Puritan practices would shine for all to see. The Puritans were initially will to work with the confines of the established Church of England, the Pilgrims thought it so corrupt that they wished to separate themselves from it completely. They set up their own secret congregation in the village of Scrooby in Nottinghamshire. They saw little chance for remaining true to their faith as long as they remained in England.
These different things caused confusion in the Aztec society and started the downfall of the Aztec empire. Another way Cortes caused the downfall of the Aztecs was his disrespect to Aztec culture. He changed the way the people conducted themselves and destroyed their values and beliefs they kept at the center of their lives. A great example of this is when Cortes ordered them to destroy their idols and change their beliefs to the Spanish belief (most likely catholic). This caused the chieftains in the society to lose confidence in the way Montezuma was going about giving the authority to Hernan Cortes.
Martha Z. Ocana 01/10/2012 GOVT 2305 Reaction Essay #1 Today I watched several videos of de Westboro Baptist Church. This people should be banned from the media in my opinion, this should not be freedom of speech. Freedom of speech should be when you’re defending a point but not hurting anyone else. It should be when you fight against people like these. I don’t know how the government allows these people to even live, they are causing damage and pain to soldier families and to gay people, the words are so hurtful and damaging that it can even lead someone to commit suicide or kill one of their members, which they’re putting themselves and their children in danger too.
Because he did this without parliaments approval parliament got angry. In the beginning the people used to pay at least 97.6% of ship money but by the time it was 1639 no one really cared and only 20% paid. A man called John Hampden stood up to the king and refused to pay ship money, Hampden was put on a trial and found guilty. But everyone else thought he was a hero. In 1637 the Scottish were told by Charles they had to use a new prayer book for their church but the Scottish didn't want to and got angry so they decided to rebel against him.
Because of the state of mind of Rob Jr., he did not know whom to believe, he was torn between the wraths of hell and his parents. Rob Jr., sincerely believed that he would end up in the ‘eternal fires’ of hell, he felt compelled to stay because he did not want to be thrown in the fires of hell. Because of the brainwashing, Rob Jr. believed Mr. Marsden and decided to stay, which constituted assumed false imprisonment. Because of the confusion caused Rob Jr., by Mr. Marsden, the church held him against his will and the will of his parents. Also, the church did not allow Rob Jr. to see his parents.
Charles later did is he got Archbishop Laud to decorate the churches to make them look “more Catholic”. This made people angry because many people protestant and wanted to stay so. But that’s not the only reason religion caused the civil war: King Charles believed in the divine right (It was when the king/queen believes that god put them on the throne). Charles took all the power. Because of this, Parliament didn’t want to go with his decision.
The battle between religion and the government is also shown here. Although the church and the government were not in unison, they were both fooling the poor people of El Salvador and making them think or act a certain way for their own benefit. The government forced them to do things and used violence if they did not cooperate or showed the least bit of rebellion. The church, although seen by the people as a good temple to run to during their mess of a time, also tricked them in to thinking certain things like giving up sacrifices for the priest, while they were the ones who were poor and needed those sacrifices. Manlio Argueta portrays the indecency of their live and their treatment by those with the authority above them.
In comparison, Fisher’s opposition was more vocal, he publicly condemned Henry getting an annulment from Catherine of Aragon, he was much more active in his opposition, delivering sermons and publishing books, an example of which being Sermon Against the Pernicious Doctrine of Martin Luther (1521). In April 1524, Fisher refused to take the oath on the act of succession, which was significant because it meant that they were choosing their Roman Catholic beliefs over Henry, which was treasonous. Historian Weir said, on fisher’s death, “there was widespread outrage at the buckering of such a
