The Screwtape Letters is a book about C.S. Lewis’ insight into the human mind from the perspective of two demons, Screwtape and Wormwood. Screwtape sends his nephew, Wormwood, words of advice on how to stray the “Patient” away from the “Enemy” and towards “The Father Below”.

Satan and his minions have corrupted the minds of those people who listen to his deceptive ideas so as to continue their hell-based schemes.
Before Dimmesdale kills himself, he admits his sin to the whole town.

This was a bold statement that Voltaire had been making, and statements such as this were the reasons why Voltaire kept getting exiled from countries. Candide then describes optimism as “a mania for saying things are well when on is in hell” (Voltaire 40).

Gregory had a personal interview with Matthew’s father, Arthur Snyder, about the how trying the ordeal was on him and how it’s hurt his mental wellness. Gregory describes in heavy detail the way the Westboro Baptist Church “hoisted revolting signs” at the funeral. He begins and ends his work with undisguised reproach for all that the Westboro Baptist Church stands for, and stops only occasionally to bring in an ethical appeal. Adam Cohen, who penned Why Spewing Hate at Funerals Is Still Free Speech, takes a different approach. He, too, looks upon the Westboro Baptist Church with disdain, but he doesn’t let that cloud what he feels to be the real problem: the beginning of taking away power from the first amendment.
