The sins that the citizens in the community committed might not have been horrible but no one judged them like they judged and humiliated Hester. When someone is disliked by majority of the people their side of the situation doesn’t matter and justice is never served correctly. Hester Prynne’s adultery was wrong but the punishment wasn’t fair. She was forced to wear the red letter A that stood for adultery, which in the religious community was a sin and a crime. Hester slept with the preacher in the town, and became pregnant, and because no unmarried man came forward, they assumed that she slept with a married man.
Reverend Hale's closed mind prevented him from seeing the true John Proctor Hale arrives at Proctor's house to warn him that Elizabeth has been accused of witchcraft. Despite their reputation as model citizens, Hale jumps a to any opportunity to label them as evil. Elizabeth does not give him what he wants to hear, so he turns his attention to
Although in reality, she is just standing up for herself, due to the Reed’s mistreatment of her. When Jane goes off to Lowood with Brokelhurst, we as the reader sense that Jane’s life is about to get a lot better. We can sense this by Jane saying ‘Even for me, life had its gleams of sunshine.’ This makes us feel glad for Jane, as we have seen her miss-justice at Gateshead. In reality Jane has no clue what she is letting herself in for at Lowood. Mr Brokelhurst is a Calvinist, so he believes that Jane is not going to change at Lowood, and will continue on her path to hell.
“You would be much better off at home where you can live properly…you’re not going to leave us are you Lilli? No, Lilli said each time.” This shows that although Miss Dalgleish wants to ‘adopt’ Lilli, her fierce determination and value to remain true to herself will not let her. Lilli will not let Miss Dalgleish get the better of her. This is a contrast to Lilli’s supposedly neutral and wild personality, as we now get to see another side of her. “…not quite accepted in our town, for a boy and a girl our age to walk to church together unless there is an adult between them, but whereas I was embarrassed, Lilli didn’t care.” Since Kit and Lilli are almost like siblings, they should feel comfortable around one another.
Being a Feminist in the Catholic Church Thesis: Being a feminist in the Catholic Church means one is regarded as trying to dispute the common human nature or the traditional feminine virtues implemented by society in which the Catholic Church upholds (Kaveny 15). Catholic feminists are put in an awkward position where they have to choose between loving and withholding the values of the church or challenging it. There is an extreme notion in the church that women have a specific role in which they need to adhere to religiously. They consider the attempt to ordain a woman as a grave crime under the canon law. Many catholic leaders believe that the poles in each polarity need to be as far apart as possible (Kaveny 14-15).
Having support will lead to being treated right since people are there for you when you need it. Another way is having hope because hope prevents ending life. A women’s main objective is to be courageous so no one treats them wrong. At first, Celie was treated badly by everyone she knew, she was taken for granted and was scared of men. He beat me today cause he say I winked at a boy in church.
Assess the veiw that woman are no longer opressed by religion When it comes to woman and religion there are many arguments that suggest woman are opressed and then many that say woman arent being opressed. Feminist are the main people who suggest woman are being opressed when it comes to religion. Feminist see relgion as patriachal ideology, which is where the men are in power and use religion as a way to get there ideas across. so for example they say man is made in gods image. So this patriachal ideology legitamates gender inequality where woman are concerned as women can not become higher leader in the church the highest women can go is to become a vicar.
The police inspector Beizmenn clearly disregards Blum because of her unmarried status and his rhetoric question: “Did he [Götten] fuck you?” is not only offensive because of its vulgare nature, but also a presupposition that Blums only use is providing pleasure for men and that is the only possible reason that Götten would have spend a night in her apartment. Katharina Blum is throughout the book terrorized by the media because of her association with a wanted man. The false accusations eventually alienates Blum from the society and as everyone who is kind to her – her employer and her family – is attacked by ‘The News’ Blum also ends up in an isolated position. In frustration she shoots the journalist Tötges, who can be held responsible for the main accusation, to death. Bölls detailed descriptions of how Tötges ruined Blums reputation and eventually her life, implies that the reader surely accepts
Judging the characters would be no feat, it takes great skill to find something admirable in someone whom at first glance appears morally indecent. Daisy Buchanan may seen as a liable choice for narrator because she is the one to make the decision between Tom and Gatsby, and with her narration we would be told of her reasons for her decision. This however, is incorrect as Daisy will never be completely honest because she pretends to be a fool, to hide when she is hurt or sad. Just as she prays for her daughter to end up, to protect her from ever getting hurt, she turns into the foolish person. Daisy will never try to decipher the motives of other characters because she has put on a mask of foolishness which will force her to say that she believes that everyone has good intentions.
6:13 it says “Now the body is not for fornication.” God does not want us to have sexual intercourse with someone that is not our husband or wife. The solution I propose is to understand how God views the problem, and through His strength, be able to over come the temptation. I. Attention-getter “Wait until marriage.” “Don’t have sex before marriage.” As Christians who grew up in church, this is something has been drilled into us at every teen activity. II. Motive for Listening Saving yourself for marriage is very important.
