Many of the new colonies were settled people who faced religious persecution for their beliefs in England. And I think as our country grew, many immigrants were drawn to our country because of its religious freedoms and diversity. Our democracy guarantees that no one can be treated differently because of their religion. Right now, we have a Mormon Mitt Romney running for president and we have people of different faiths in government. Sometimes there is still prejudice but overall all that we have freedom of religion that really is a great tool to help our country be
He also saw that help can come from places you least expect it. He didn’t expect help from Boo that night, because he believed all the things he had heard about him, and didn’t realize he was a really nice, kind person. Jem really wanted everybody to be treated equal. I like the theme of the story. I can see how lies and rumors can cause so many problems in our world.

Eidson influenced my first impressions of Nat Swanson by persuading me to believe he was a bad and lonely character from the start of the novel. Eidson clearly demonstrates Nat Swanson as a lone ranger, a one-man gang and a loner in this story. At first Eidson reflects on Nat Swanson’s history to reflect his characteristics. Nat Swanson lost his whole family in an incident involving Comanche’s at a young age and was passed around foster homes. He felt abandoned because he also knew himself that he was only taken in by family for his work ethics but not for the caring and love of a child.
ontrast Compare and Contrast Early authors of the Puritanism era often wrote about the same recurring themes. The themes they explored most were themes of religions and faith. Although they wrote about the same themes many used different strategies of getting their ideas across.

As all good American citizens of the 50’s-60, everything he decides, does, must respect the catholic traditions. For example, when he believes Honey to be pregnant, he immediately decides to marry her; otherwise he wouldn’t have been respected in some community. As a result, his motivations for a greater social status would have been compromised. Albee used this example to show the over importance of religion in every American family.
