  • And Justice For All - 1,200 words
    And Justice For All Throughout modern American culture certain laws passed by the majority have been considered unjust by a wise minority. However, with the logical and emotional appeal of hard fought battles, voices have been heard, and the minds of the majority can sometimes be converted to see the truth. Thoreau, after spending a night in jail and seeing the truth hidden behind the propaganda of the majority, became convinced that he could no longer accept his governments behavior of passing laws that benefit the majority with degrading the minority. Its quite ironic that by the government imprisoning Thoreau he became freer then ever before. He was able to see how the government turned p ...

  • Capital Punishment And Ethics - 1,114 words
    Capital Punishment And Ethics The use of capital punishment has been a permanent fixture in society since the earliest civilizations and continues to be used as a form of punishment in countries today. It has been used for various crimes ranging from the desertion of soldiers during wartime to the more heinous crimes of serial killers. However, the mere fact that this brutal form of punishment and revenge has been the policy of many nations in the past does not subsequently warrant its implementation in today's society. The death penalty is morally and socially unethical, should be construed as cruel and unusual punishment since it is both discriminatory and arbitrary, has no proof of acting ...

    Concert Report This past Sunday I attended one of many classical concerts that the Lake San Marcos Chamber Music Society (L.S.M.C.M.S.) hosts. The one I sat in on was their season opener at the San Dieguito United Methodist Church. It featured Michele Zukovsky (clarinet), Daniel Rothmuller (cello), and Joanne Pearce Martin (piano) as they performed an all-Brahms program. The musicians presented three pieces by Johannes Brahms: Sonata in F major for Cello and Piano, Op. 99, Sonata in F minor for Clarinet and Piano, Op. 120 No. 1, and Trio in A minor for Clarinet, Cello and Piano, Op. 114. The performance of Sonata in F major for Cello and Piano, Op. 99 Allegro vivace was truly an amazing expe ...

  • Damnation Of Theron Ware - 997 words
    Damnation Of Theron Ware The real issues in the damnation of Theron ware are not issues of religion, but rather cultural issues.

The problems that Theron is having in the novel reflect questions that people were having on religious issues at the time.

  • During The Past Quarter Century, Abortion Has Joined Race And - 1,440 words
    During the past quarter century, abortion has joined race and war as one of the most debatable subject of controversy in the United States. It discusses human interaction where ethics, emotions and law come together. Abortion poses a moral, social and medical dilemma that faces many individuals to create a emotional and violent atmosphere. There are many points of view toward abortion but the only two fine distinctions are "pro-choice" and "pro-life". A pro-choicer would feel that the decision to abort a pregnancy is that of the mothers and the state has no right to interfere. A pro-lifer would hold that from the moment of conception, the embryo or fetus is alive. This life imposes on us a m ...

The nexus between the religious and cultural strands was plainly evident in 1983 at a general body meeting of Atlanta's Indian American cultural Association as it examined the objectives of an Indian cultural center. The members rejected a view that the center should be secular and limited to cultural activities and agreed to name it the India Cultural and Religious Center. Similarly, the India Temple Association in South Jersey named its center as the Hindu Temple and Cultural Center. Authenticity o ...

  • Homosexuality Within The Church: - 1,768 words
    Homosexuality within the Church: An Issue of Religious Liberty The Argument If one were to ask your stance on homosexuality within the Christian church and your reasoning behind your views, how would you answer them? I find that most Christians I have talked with take a rather conservative, traditional view and base their beliefs upon a few key passages in the Bible - I Corinthians 6:9-10; Ephesians 5:3-5; Colossians 3:5-6; Jude 5-7 and about a dozen more. The basic problem with limiting your view to these various scriptures is that homosexuals who claim to be Christians use these same passages in defense. Many claim that these passages have been translated incorrectly from their original te ...

    Prohibition: The Legislation of Morality During the 1800's and early 1900's through out the United States there was a movement for the end of alcohol. The sole aim and purpose of this body was to stamp out the evils of alcohol. This movement, most commonly called Prohibition, mixed the morals of Christianity and the politics of government. Prohibition did succeed with the ratification of the 18th was, however, a great mistake. This amendment made the common man a criminal, lowered the confidence in the federal government, and started what we now know as organized crime. The 18th amendment was a "noble experiment," but it was a horrible disaster. Prohibition has been supported since the origi ...

It was not really the fact they made an extreme amount of wealth, it was more the way they made it. In all the cases the acquiring of wealth was done in what was considered a ruthless manor and unscrupulous ways. A robber baron was more interested in acquiring wealth than the safety of his employees, the amount of work hours performed in a week, or the amount of wage being paid for a days work. For example Andrew Carnegie(the robber baron of the steel industry), he was instrumental in ...

    Seneca Village When people think of Central Park, the thought of African-Americans once owning the land is inconceivable. Yet, this was the case 150 years ago when there once thrived a place called Seneca Village. The land known as Seneca Village was originally farmland owned by John and Elizabeth Whitehead. Andrew Williams, an African-American male, bought three lots of land from the Whiteheads in 1825. In addition, the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church purchased six lots of land, which began the birth of the community. The Whiteheads eventually sold off their land between 82nd to 86th Streets. The majority of the buyers were African Americans. This became the first community for prop ...
