Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin worked as an assistant to Charles Barry on the design of the New Palace of Westminster. Prior to the rebuilding of The Palace of Westminster, Britain had seen an unparalleled metamorphosis from a Roman Catholic Country to a Protestant. This affected many aspects of life in the following years including architecture. Pugin himself had already dissented from his Protestant upbringing and converted to Roman Catholicism in 1835. This internal dissent from tradition certainly affected Pugin’s view of what the true Christian style of architecture was.

He took this fire with him back home, where in January 1907, a revival occurred that became the “Azusa of the South.” Through the ministry of Azusa Street, several existing holiness bodies became Pentecostal, including the Church of God (Cleveland, Tennessee), the Fire-Baptized Holiness Church and the Pentecostal Free-Will Baptist Church. From there, this new movement multiplied exponentially. From these humble beginnings the Pentecostal movement would spread around the world. In the days when prejudice and tensions between blacks and whites were so high, God decided to use this tattered building and a humble black preacher to help spread the power of the Holy Spirit across the world. Though the building is no longer standing, you can still find its spiritual footprint in virtually every corner of the

The new schedule was based loosely on seniority, but could change daily based on workload. Taylor informed his supervisor that he was leaving for church service and was warned that he would be terminated; Taylor left and was terminated the next day. In spite of Arlington accommodating Taylor’s schedule request for two years, the court ruled that the schedule change in 1987 should have been treated like a new instance and “all that was in place was an ad hoc arrangement contemplating that the inevitable collision between Taylor's religious beliefs and the company's new work schedule would be dealt with when it arose. […] Once the new schedule was implemented, the company should have made a reasonable attempt to accommodate his sincere religious needs” (Plaintiff-appellant v. Arlington Transit Mix, Inc., 1991).With the implementation of a new schedule policy, we should review what accommodations our company is willing to make due to the increased chance that associates may encounter instances that they need time off in order to observe religious beliefs.

Paul Mattick explains in this article the development of arts in the nineteenth century and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) role. Mattick begins his article referring to the NEA, “On June 25, 1998 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against the so-called NEA Four... The high court’s decision was for all practical purposes the last act of a drama that had begun in 1989 with Congressional agitation against the NEA in response to complaints orchestrated by right-wing Christian outfits, notably Rev. Donald Wildmon’s American Family Association, against supposedly blasphemous and indecent artworks by Andres Serrano and Robert Mapplethorpe which had been exhibited in NEA-supported institutions.” (Mattick, 521) “How has this happened, and what does it tell us about the place of arts in society at the present time?” (Mattick, 521) With this question Mattick begins to analyze the nineteenth century of arts. Mattick enforced the relation of art with economic and politics, essential to the survival of art.

Prayer in public schools is a controversial topic that has taken top-billing on many of Americans minds. In the article, Banning Prayer in Public Schools Has Led to America’s Demise by Gary Bergel states in the first paragraph, “On June 25, l962, 39 million students were forbidden to do what they and their predecessors had been doing since the founding of our nation – publicly calling upon the name of the Lord at the beginning of each school day.” Bergel is attempting to state that America has decreased in morals since this date as well as forbidding prayer at that time. These are the first two incorrect points of this article. They are by no means the only ones but these will be the two major points of contention addressed. First, the date Bergel uses is in reference to the court case of Engel V. Vitale in New York.
