Wicca In The Military: Friend Or Foe?

- Wicca in the Military: Friend or Foe. Does the word “Wicca” offend you. If you are like most people in the United States, then it does. Why does such a small word invoke such feelings of fear, hatred, and loathing. Ignorance is the reason. Many people do not know what Wicca is nor do they know about the people who follow it. Since there is such a negative connotation of Wicca in everyday society, would it be safe to say that Wiccans in the military are judged just as harshly. Is a Wiccan not as worthy of religious provisions as say, a Christian....   [tags: Religion Religious Wicca]

- One of the hardest questions in life “Would you donate sperm so that a good friend of yours could be inseminated, to hopefully lead to pregnancy?”, probably right after “Would you die for someone you love?” is a very difficult and intrusive question to ask, let alone answer. Many people have a different perspective on this and don’t see it as a problem, but see it is as a calling to help a friend through a difficult time. Now before I start giving my own opinion and reason to why I could or couldn’t give my friend my sperm I have to say is I have nothing against this nor do I have anything against surrogacy....   [tags: Parent, Mother, Family, Pregnancy]

Better to Betray My Country and Not My Friend

- We as human beings all have choices. Many of the choices we make can affect us for the rest of our lives. Among the more important decisions a person will ever have to face is that of betrayal. Often times we are in a situation in which we must chose sides: “Whom to betray?”, and in this case, the options are friend or country. I agree with E. M. Forster’s view on personal relations and patriotism, believing that “I hope I should have the guts to betray my country” (Forster) over my friend. A person should always – and one might even say has a duty to – place his conscience or the moral laws he has set for himself over any conflicting manmade law....   [tags: E. M. Forster]
