Friar Laurence, through his lack of good judgment, is largely responsible for the deaths of both Romeo and Juliet. Rather than being supportive of them and helping them disclose their loving situation, Friar Laurence took the “easy” way out. He succumbed to their desire to elope. He secretly married Romeo and Juliet instead of standing behind them and encouraging them to confront their families with the facts about their commitment to and love for each other. As a result, an even stronger bond between them was created through marriage: "For, by your leaves, you shall not stay alone / Till holy church incorporate two in one" (2.6.36-37).
Also my father was really into teach me the history of the time the bible was written and coming to my own conclusion that history and the bible do not match. Another thing is being a survivor of a lot of childhood trauma; I couldn’t understand why a god would do this to me when I was so involved in the church. My god failed me and didn’t protect my innocents. My second bias is when women wear pj’s or sweat pants with Ugg boots during the day. I think this style of dress shows laziness and represents lack of self-worth.
His motivation was caused by the weeping and tears of Juliet who was in the hands of a twisted marriage against her will. She had already been married to her love, but now that promise was in danger of being broken. From the few lines that the friar speaks, the audience realizes that this friar is certainly not the stereotype friar that goes around trying to live an impossible life of perfection. Though it may have been wrong to help children marry against their parents’ permission, and let them fake a death to run away together, Friar Lawrence did the exact thing. Friar Lawrence didn’t think of what was lawfully right, but of the destiny of two people, that were very important to him.
Why not? Because we know that is not God’s heart! Our problem is that the enemy has been able to influence and affect our filters of interpretation. Ever since the fall, satan has been twisting our thinking. Tragically, the enemy has sold us a pack of lies, and because we believe these lies are the truth, we read a verse like “women are to keep silent in the church,” and we actually entertain it as if that ... ... middle of paper ... ...t teach them and be true to the full context of the discussion in 1 Corinthians.
However, religion was a focal part of people’s lives at the time the play was set and at the time it was written, one would be justified in claiming that Hamlet genuinely didn’t want to kill Claudius while he was praying to prevent him from going to heaven. Furthermore, it is possible to propose that Shakespeare merely uses this scene to provoke irritation and consequently suspense from the audience. If Hamlet wasn’t given this opportunity to kill Claudius we would have not this insight into Hamlet’s indecisiveness, possible cowardice and inability to kill Claudius in cold blood. It is probable to suggest that through this soliloquy we are shown that Hamlet’s initial passion for revenge after the Ghost’s visitation has faded as the play progresses to merely thinking about killing Claudius. This scene is in fact a visual representation of Hamlet’s problem throughout the play, this focal problem is open to two different interpretations: either Hamlet has the ability and passion to kill Claudius but he doesn’t have the right time to do it, or Hamlet doesn’t have the self-assurance and courage to do ... ... middle of paper ... ...ilst he is praying is heavily ‘underpinned’ by religious reasons, as I have already mentioned religion was a very important part of people’s lives at the time.
In fact she never called her husband George unless she was trying to manipulate him in some way. Tesman is so blind to Hedda’s manipulative nature that he responded with joy, “Hedda- Oh, is this true?- What you’re saying?… I never noticed that you loved me in this way before”(1458). This disgusted Hedda because she was not truthfully trying to please Tesman and his reaction was one of excitement. With Hedda’s cold manipulati... ... middle of paper ... ...on to her problems. Hedda’s relationship with all three men ultimately created a life she was unhappy with thus leading her closer to her death.
This is a logical fallacy because if the bible is known for its good stories and its good fables, but most of the book contains things that are frowned upon by god himself. In conclusion, Paine makes a good argument that the bible is wrong and the stories in it don’t make a lot of sense. He makes a god point about his religion being his mind and not what a book has to say or what preachers have to talk about to further the word of god. For me I grew up in a catholic family, went to catholic schools, and go to church every Sunday. These points make sense but I cant agree with Paine one hundred percent on this one.
I believe that Hawthorne filled the story of Young Goodman Brown with allusions to religion because he himself was struggling with his beliefs. Writing about struggles make it appear as if it is another individual suffering, while through it all the writer is sorting out issues dear to him. He was a young man with a wife called “Faith” (1113). I know that Hebrews 11:6 states “but without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (KJV). Faith is a very important part of religious beliefs and people in general.
Friar Laurence was a role model to Romeo whether he knew it or not. A role model looks out for people and The Friar was the first person Romeo told about his relationship with Juliet. He came to him because he could not speak to his parents about this topic because they hated the Capulets and vise versa. Lady Capulet tells Juliet what a horrible person Romeo is, “... as that the villain lives which slaughtered him... That same villain, Romeo” (3.5.79 and 81). The fact that Romeo came to the Friar with something he couldn’t even share with his closest friends or family proves how much he trusts Friar Laurence.
How ethical is it to extremely dislike somebody for the sake of having a certain household name? This all falls in from a generation when human beings were somewhat aimed their attention on religions, which educates us not to detest. The reason why I question this is because I think it’s unexpected that both Romeo and Juliet seem to be kind of religious, considering the number one person that Romeo went to for support was Friar Lawrence, along with a couple of scenes in Romeo and Juliet that show up in/or throughout the church. I personally think that this antagonism is pretty bad talking about the Capulets and the Montagues because I was consistently beneath the feeling that the households had been fighting and arguing for a long time that nobody truly knew why they hated one another anymore. In the middle of the play there is big conflict between the two families when Romeo fights Tybalt.
