Also will be explained the three limitations of Kohlberg’s theory. Last, a summary of Carol Gilligan and what her research says about possible gender differences in moral reasoning. Kohlberg’s Theory of Moral Development In the 1950s psychologist Lawrence Kohlberg developed a theory focusing on moral development. His theory was based upon the theory of Jean Piaget, which focused on cognitive reasoning. Kohlberg completed a research by interviewing children and asking them questions regarding moral dilemmas.
To conclude Borneman and Hart explains, “While the model of marriage is arguably heterosexual, the practice of marriage is not.” In O’Brien, Breda’s article, “Further dilution of marriage could have dire results,” she will argue against same sex marriages and that because of heterosexuals we are facing the erosion of what marriage used to stand for (8). O’Brien raises many questions to the readers about the concerning changes in marriage and how it is changing the values on how we protect our children. She explains that marriage is constantly evolving to meet the needs of society and not for the children. The more we focus on our own emotional fulfillment the more we give away the understanding of marriage, says O’Brien (9). I have always considered myself an open-minded person especially when it comes to changes with in our society.
Case Study: Boy Scouts of America Anti-gay Policy Ronald Graves Sullivan University CMM401X May 31, 2013 Abstract As a private organization, the Boy Scouts of America legally have the right to exclude members but their stance or policy banning both gay scouts and leaders is the core issue which has led to conflict between those opposing the anti-gay policy and those in support of the policy. The current conflict surrounding the Boy Scouts of America’s anti-gay policy is not new to the organization as their ban on gay scouts and leaders has been a point of contention for many years. Supporters of the anti-gay policy want to keep the ban on gay members in place to align with the religious views and core values of the organization, while opponents of the policy are taking the position of inclusive membership, allowing for gay members and leaders to openly participate in the Boy Scouts of America. Keywords: anti-gay policy, ban, conflict, organization, members, leaders, exclude, Introduction The purpose of this paper is to analyze the conflict between the opponents and proponents of the Boy Scouts of America’s anti-gay policy by applying the ten conflict resolution strategies, as presented in Resolving Conflicts at Work: Ten Strategies for Everyone on the Job (2011) by Kenneth Cloke and Joan Goldsmith. The application of the ten conflict resolution strategies will lead to a better understanding of the true nature of the conflict surrounding the Boy Scouts of America’s anti-gay policy and offer up potential solutions to resolve said conflict.

In her book, The Anita Bryant Story, she claims that God was showing her things and asking her to share them through her demonstration against homosexuals and the book itself (Bryant 14). Bryant and her pastor, Brother Bill, declared in Bryant’s book that they love homosexuals enough to save them from being condemned by God (Bryant 67). In 1977, Anita Bryant went up against the ordinance in Miami-Dade County, Florida that made it illegal to discriminate based on sexual preference in the work place, housing, and public places (NNDB). Sadly, Bryant won this small battle in the war against homosexual equality. Because of this, the ordinance made it legal to fire workers, deny
Retired U.S Army Colonel, Dave Bedey, discusses why he was against the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy with the Washington post in an e-mail interview. The article “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell: Against Repeal of Policy” is a copy of Bedey’s conversation with the Washington post. In the article “Don’t ask Don’t tell: Against Repeal of Policy” Dave Bedey begins by discussing how Obama’s state defense officials will inform the Senate, that the disciplinary action against gay service members will no longer be forcefully pursued. Bedey discusses his views on the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. Bedey states that he opposes “because of the risk that open service by homosexuals poses to unit cohesion and more importantly, to the stability of the larger military community that supports those units” (para.
This may be to the fact that the Coen Brothers have never actually read Homer’s Epic Tale. The idea that you can even make a movie based on something you have never read shows the relevance of Homer’s tale in pop culture today. This film follows the same classic journey motif as The Odyssey and as Sowa (2001) says “the Journey theme has always been a favorite one for story-tellers everywhere, as a metaphor for life and its experiences”. The journey in the Coen’s tale takes Everett on a journey through deep south Mississippi in attempt to stop his wife from marrying another man. Along the way he meets many characters who strongly resemble characters in Homer’s version of the tale.
This essay will discuss the intrinsic relationship between diversity conceptualization and social integration presenting a response against David Brooks’ essay entitled “People Like Us.” In order to do this I will discuss four crucial elements: the influences of different definitions of diversity in cultural unification, Brook’s ideas about social groups working together and social groups coexisting together, the importance of diversity, and the influence of diversity in social changes. I will examine why some people have the perception that our American society ignore or see as unworthy diversity. Thus, I will dispute Brook’s view stating that our society disregards diversity, and Americans just pretend that it is important to them. First, I will discuss the influences of different definitions of diversity in cultural unification. The major problem concerning this issue is that many people differ in the real meaning of the concept and how they view their personal involvement.
