- Freedom Of Religion And Speech - 713 words
Freedom Of Religion And Speech Two of Americas most valued freedoms are the freedoms of speech and of religion. Because they are such fundamental freedoms in this country, debates over their scope and limitations are often very impassioned. One such debate is the question of whether or not prayer should be mandated in public schools. This is not merely a religious or educational topic, however; it is also a hotly debated political issue. On one side are conservatives who believe that encouraging prayer will save the nations morality. On the other are liberals who fear enforced prayers would impede students religious rights. In the end, the controversy is for naught; the law already protects ...

Harry Potter: Good Or Evil Harry Potter: Good or Evil? Throughout adolescents, a child is taught to use his or her imagination. A child is read stories of a talking cat or a silly old bear while still young and nave. The child is read such stories to encourage use of his or her creativity.

- Hate Crimes - 1,181 words
Hate Crimes Homosexual people make up ten percent of the population; that means if you are sitting in a classroom of thirty, then more than likely three of those people are gay. However, this overwhelmingly large minority group continues to be one of the least protected by the government as well as most heavily targeted by discrimination and hate crimes. Regardless of the powerful shift in public opinion on homosexuality during the last twenty years and the outcry for more government intervention in the case of hate crimes and other such atrocities, the laws have remained invariable. A hate crime is an act of aggression against an individual's actual or perceived race, ethnicity, religions, ...

- Make Prostitution Legal - 1,238 words
Make Prostitution Legal Prostitution Theory 101 by Yvonne Abraham with Sarah McNaught Few things have divided feminists as much as the sex industry. Theorists who agree on a vast swath of issues -- economic equality, affirmative action, even sexual liberation -- often find themselves bitterly opposed over pornography and prostitution. Most 19th-century feminists opposed prostitution and considered prostitutes to be victims of male exploitation. But just as the suffragette and temperance movements were bound together at the turn of the century, so too were feminist and contemporary moral objections to prostitution. Women, the argument went, were repositories of moral virtue, and prostitution ...

- Marilyn Manson - 1,853 words
... America. His philosophies are by no means far-fetched and therefore they should not be under any sort of heat for being stupid. Stupid is what Marilyn Manson and many of his followers have been called. Many remarks like these are made by protective parents, whom however, must in turn realize their own moral and ethical deficiencies first. The main argument that has been made of Mansons antics is his corruption of Americas youth. He has been accused of having sexual intercourse on stage (Manson 246) and influencing others to have sex as well. These are of course false rumors, because singing and playing music at the same time would be rather difficult. Of course Manson is in no way a perf ...

- Mccains Campaign - 1,114 words
McCain`s Campaign John McCains campaign for the office of president of the United States has been carefully thought out in order to attract the largest possible amount of voters. As in all campaigns, everything that the candidate has said and done has been screened and planned so as to not offend or scare off any potential voters. Because of the campaigns thoughtfulness and attention to detail, the McCain campaign has been mostly successful up until this point. Until now John McCain and his closest competitor for the Republican party nomination, George W. Bush, have nearly been splitting support from party members, with a slight advantage toward Bush. Both candidates have been campaigning ha ...

- Population Control - 854 words
Population Control In early years human population and population growth has not been an issue. This is because of the variety of different environmental factors. Sickness and disease has played a large role in keeping human population under control since the beginning of time. It seemed that when a population would get over crowded an epidemic such as, the influenza or small pox would break out. This would drastically decrease the population enough that it would be under control again. Famine is another great controller of population. When a famine strikes an area only the few with enough food will be able to reproduce or even survive. An examination of world population control would not be ...

- Southern Voting Behavior - 1,619 words
Southern Voting Behavior Southern Voting behavior since the 1960s Voters in many areas of the U.S. are apt to vote differently as a whole from election to election. The nation has also had a decreased turnout rate for the presidential and local elections. The South has typically not followed these patterns that the rest of has seemed to be following. The Southern whites of the U.S. have typically followed and voted for the more conservative candidate and party. Where as the Southern blacks have typically (when they have been able to vote) voted for the more liberal party or candidate. The South was at one time a Democratic stronghold and has in the past 30 years become a typically conservati ...

- The Antipornography Feminist Movement - 2,127 words
The Anti-Pornography Feminist Movement The Anti-Pornography Feminist Movement I dont need statistics to tell me that there is a relationship between pornography and real violence. My body remembers. This chilling testimony from a female rape victim to a grand jury in 1983 represents the evils that pornography represents in the United States. There are strong correlations between sex crimes and pornography that have divided feminists over whether free speech is worth the sheer magnitude of sex-crime victims. Free speech is protected by the First Amendment and most people have differing views on its meaning. One thing that cannot be ignored is the fact that 90% of sexual offenders have used po ...
