This issue has been debated before, and since there was so much hostility in the world the French government has decided to make it an official law. A poll was conducted before the regional elections, and 60-70% voted in the favor of the new law. Muslims as well as other religious groups will be affected with this new law, and some of them are the Jewish groups, Sikh’s, and any other religious groups expressing themselves with any kind of symbols. Political View: The government is trying to make everyone equal, and having the same laws and rules of everyone in France. In passing of this new law the French government has regarded the headscarf as a symbol of oppressing women, and as the embodiment of political worldview that has rejected secularism.
Asses the view that secularization is a feature of the contemporary UK Wilson(1996) defines secularization as the process whereby religious thinking,practice and their institutions lose their social significance. The different aspects of religious belief,practice and institutions will be taken into account when assessing whether secularization is a feature of the contemporary UK. Sociologist Bruce (2002) argues that the main reason for the growth of secularization in the UK is the growth of scientific explanations of the world and the way in which technology has been applied to society it has undermined many Religious beliefs which has led to an overall decline in belief. For example Darwins theory of evolution which challenged the creation story and the advances of in medical science mean that there is a reduced amount of people turning to religion for answers. Sociologist Weber supported this view stating that the growing disenchantment of the world will create a “desacralization of the world”.
There are a number of reasons why Civil War broke out. One important factor was to do with Charles and his actions towards religion. In 1625, Before Charles was even king he married a French Catholic, Henrietta Maria, who was very open about her religion. This made the people of England very worried and agitated, because if Henrietta and Charles had children, they would probably be openly Catholic too. That meant they were the heirs to the throne, and they would turn England back to being Catholic.
There was an influx of Jewish people into Germany, therefore the anti-emetic actions grew larger, despite it already being apparent that the Kaiser was anti-Semitic himself, at the end of the19th century there was a wave of anti Semitic publications, the Kaiser is known to have read these books etc.., this causes great tensions, as clearly the population agrees with their Kaiser’s opinion causing anti-Semitism to rise. Another source of tension was the anti-Semitism being clear through the idea that no Jews were able to do more traditional career areas, such as government, the army and judiciary’, this meant the they had no choice but to become bankers and lawyers act, all high earning jobs, this caused some tension within the country as they were the higher earning majority,
Angered men were coming together to protect themselves and what they had left, willing to attack anything perceived as a threat. This caused problems for Henry, especially in regards to the law and there were also rumours of pressure on ordinary people from the Catholic League. In 1594, French Huguenots gathered for their first assembly and continued to have three more. They used these to discuss plans of action for gaining hope for their own future, deciding on demands to make to the King in order to ensure a better future. In order to keep the Huguenots peaceful, Henry knew he would have to settle them in a way that tackled their demands.
This issue was criticism about 2 previous years in France which is the second country in Europe after Belgium. They enacted a law banning on headscarves’ law with many reasons. There are 3 reasons why I totally agree with this banning law. First of all, wearing the headscarves encourages terrorism. At a time when Britain and America were threaten from Muslim extremists, the government had enhanced the security in order to prevent it.
The supposed growth of external and internal opposition which obliged those who were determined to protect the gains from 1789/90 to resort to more ruthless methods. Serious threats to the Revolution from inside France itself, both from those who felt the revolution had gone too far & those who felt it had not gone far enough Louis obstructed or vetoed laws to deport refractory priests, dismissed Girondin ministers Flander’s Regiment. Marie Antionette. Those who wanted a return to pre-1989 La Grand Peur. The Federalist revolt surrendered Toulon to the British after the Girondins had been expelled by the Jacobins Defection of Lafayette Vendee Rebellion - rebellion in defense of the church, bread shortages, conscription and against Parisian intrusion into provincial life.
They dealt with politics, history, religion, science, education, government, politics, economics.. Some of their proposals consisted on religious toleration instead of catholic intolerance, freedom of speech and press, no censorship, uniform taxation with no tax privileges, free trade, constitutional monarchy instead of the “divine right” and education based on meritocracy instead of reserving it for the privileged orders, etc.. They were not revolutionaries, however they did have an impact on the Collapse of the ancient regime in 1789, and therefore of the French revolution itself, and even if they didn’t completely intended it, they caused the population (By salons, press propaganda, debates, journalists) to start questioning certain aspects of the way France was ruled and it provided a justification for criticism and for change. It also provide created a questioning of the authority, as the criticisms sometime reached workers, peasants and artisans as scandalous satires in pamphlets which presented the queen as promiscuous, and a impotent and indecisive king.
(2004), Samuel P. Huntington, argues that this high level of cultural diversity prevalent in the USA can disintegrate the country, as it’s experiencing a growing cultural gap between the adherents of the Anglo-protestant culture and the immigrants, who have not yet assimilated into this culture. Key features of the Anglo-protestant culture include; “Christian religion with emphasize on the protestant values and morals, a work ethic, the English language, British traditions, justice and the limits of government power, and a legacy of European art, literature, philosophy, and music”. As a consequence hereof the American people can lose their national identity and unity, as ideology alone is a weak glue to hold people together otherwise lacking racial, ethnic, and cultural sources of community. The solution is therefore, for Americans to recommit themselves to the Anglo-Protestant culture, traditions and values. Phrased differently, America should quit embracing the idea of a multicultural society and work towards becoming a mono-cultural one.
Through discussion of similarities and differences between these concepts we will conclude whether secularism and religion are able to coexist, or whether an inability to do so is a result of their opposing assets or rather their similar qualities. We will finish with a focus on the central role of identity in the on-going struggle between sides. Introducing Secularism, Nationalism and Fundamentalism In recent decades, there has been what Juergensmeyer (2008) describes as an upsurge of religious “Global Rebellion”, universally evident from the rise in extremist groups, rebel overthrows and increased religion based violence and conflict. In comparing various religions and demographics one can attain a more profound understanding of why such social upheavals are rising. As an instigating factor behind many violent conflicts, both nationally and transnationally, religion must be considered in order to comprehend more fully the
