What are societies attitudes towards diversity?
Here in Oregon we don't mind diversity, but we do mind homosexuality. We don't go on witch hunts for them, but as long as they don't do something like try to "celebrate gay pride" then it is okay if they just wanna stay away from us. The thing that sets us off the most is usually when someone tries to claim that it is a "disease" or something that they were born with and they have no power over, witch is a total lie. It is only brought on by outside influences or a very secluded childhood. Not by birth.

What attitudes did the wealthy class demonstrate towards the poor in Victorian Society What did they attribute towards their poverty Did they feel any sense of responsibility for helping them?
They felt no sympathy or any sense of responsibility. They believed that it was their own doing by being poor. They were very self absorbed and didn't care (most people) for a…ny one else except them selves and their family. For example, if anyone in the high part of society saw a poor man begging in the streets they would just look at them with disgust, swear at them and spit on their ground (of course not everyone was this extreme). Even though there is so much poverty today we have many food banks and other organizations for the poor. Back during this period it was not the case. The poor were on their own during the Victorian Era.
What was an attitude toward society in the late 1700 based on the belief that the good virtue and morality of the people were essential to sustain the republican form of government?
a diverse society is a society in which there are different kinds of people. example=blacks whites asians Mexicans and Jews. these are different races which is diversity The… concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique. A diverse society is accepting that we are all not the same but we are similar in what we do. We go to church, we eat certain foods. A Muslim wont eat meat unless it has been blessed by the Iman. A vegetarian wont eat meat because of their individual beliefs. We choose to do things in our own way but we don't come to realise how simialr we actually are.
It is not that the people don't like mirriors it is just that everyoune is the same so there is no reason to look in one so they are useless to them.
He thinks sex should only happen between two people who care deeply about each other. He gets very upset about the idea of sex being casual (that's why he gets so mad at Stra…dlater about Jane). He needs an emotional connection.
The right attitude is to be positive . Dont look at it as as boring, look at it as a way to learn somrhing new and enhance your intelligence.
In "The Giver" the attitude toward mirrors is a reflection of everyone being the same.
to be honest, their over emotional, naggy, boring (especially around town), sometimes slaggy, somtimes terribly ugly, fake (in bed, and with the make up that makes them look l…ike they have been tango'd) . but that's why we love them.
The Parisees were people that were in charge of making sure people didn't commit sin. They knew scripture very well and had a very high power in politics. Once Jesus came arou…nd claiming to be the Son of God, they were losing popularity and power. People started looking towards Jesus instead of them. The parisees did not like Jesus at all.
The psalms written by David are full of trust, devotion, gratitude, praise and awe to God depending on the reason for writing the psalm.
A: Christian attitudes towards poverty are ambiguous. The Bible is of no help because its messages vary from Luke's concern for the welfare of the poor, through "the poor will… always be with us" to John's portrayal of Jesus as the friend of the rich and powerful, who reserved his best miracles for his rich friends. Some individual Christians may seek to help the poor, but others may just shrug their shoulders or perhaps believe that their church offerings or tithes absolve them of further responsibility. Some newer churches teach that wealth is next to righteousness, so we should pursue wealth rather than be overconcerned with the less fortunate. Even the Catholic Church is an enormously wealthy institution while presiding over the welfare of some of the world's poorest people. There is probably no intrinsic difference between Christian attitudes in general and non-Christian attitudes towards poverty. We all have our consciences, and the extent to which we exercise our consciences or look to our self-interest is unlikely to be influenced by religion.
Christians have many different feelings towards wars. You cannot generalize all Christians, though the gospel has many messages of peace within it. For example, Disciples …of Jesus should be peacemakers, not war makers. 'Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God' (Matthew 5:9). Human life requires peace to develop and war obstructs human development. Every human life, from the movement of conception until death, is sacred, created by God with a purpose and should not be destroyed ('Do not kill')

he Bible's attitude toward homosexuality depends completely on the interpretation of the reader. For example, most Jews read Leviticus 18:22 as a prohibition against rape …and/or sexual humiliation of men. Jews also do not believe the story of Sodom and Gomorrah talks about homosexuality. in fact, even the most conservative viewpoints of the Bible say that it only mentions specific acts, and nothing about nature of sexual orientation. BIBLICAL-Interpretive Answer Let theBible interpret the Bible: What doesGod say about homosexuality? 1. God unequivocally forbids homosexuality:- Leviticus 18:22 MKJV (v.22) You shall not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is abomination to God. 2. God condemmed Sodom and Gomorrah for their homosexuality. It is sin:- Genesis 18:20-21 NET (v.20) So the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so blatant (v.21) that I must go down and see if they are as wicked as the outcry suggests. If not, I want to know." 3. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of their unrepentant homosexuality:- Genesis 19:4-5 Genesis 19:4-5 NET (v.4) Before they could lie down to sleep, all the men - both young and old, from every part of the city of Sodom - surrounded the house. (v.5) They shouted to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so we can have sex with them!" Genesis 19:24-26 Genesis 19:24-26 NET (v.24) Then the LORD rained down sulfur and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah. It was sent down from the sky by the LORD. (v.25) So he overthrew those cities and all that region,7including all the inhabitants of the cities and the vegetation that grew from the ground. (v.26) But Lot's wife looked back longingly and was turned into a pillar of salt. 4. The example of Sodom and Gomorrah is given as a warning for people of all ages. God holds homosexuals fully accountable for their sin:- 2 Peter 2:6, 9-10 NET (v.6) and if he [God] turned to ashes the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah when he condemned them to destruction, having appointed them to serve as an example to future generations of the ungodly, (v.9) - if so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from their trials, and to reserve the unrighteous for punishment at the day of judgment, (v.10) especially those who indulge their fleshly desires and who despise authority. Brazen and insolent, they are not afraid to insult the glorious ones, Jude 6-7 Jude 1:6-7 NET (v.6) You also know that the angels who did not keep within their proper domain2but abandoned their own place of residence, he has keptin eternal chains in utter darkness, locked up for the judgment of the great Day. (v.7) So also Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighboring towns, since they indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire in a way similar to these angels, are now displayed as an example by suffering the punishment of eternal fire. 5. God's wrath is revealed against all of the godlessness and wickedness of men - this includes homosexuality:- Romans 1:24, 26-27, 32 NET (v.24) Therefore God gave them over in the desires of their hearts to impurity, to dishonor their bodies among themselves. (v.26) For this reason God gave them over to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged the natural sexual relations for unnatural ones, (v.27) and likewise the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed in their passions for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. (v.32) Although they fully know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but also approve of those who practice them. 6. Paul describes homosexuality as a perversion of God's gift:- Romans 1:26-28 NET (v.26) For this reason God gave them over to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged the natural sexual relations for unnatural ones, (v.27) and likewise the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed in their passions for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. (v.28) And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what should not be done. 7. The wicked - including homosexuals - will not inherit the kingdom of God:- 1Cor 6:9-10 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 NET (v.9) Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, passive homosexual partners, practicing homosexuals, (v.10) thieves, the greedy, drunkards, the verbally abusive,7 and swindlers will not inherit the kingdom of God. BUT 8. There ishope for homosexuals - God forgives and cleanses persons of this sin:- 1Cor 6:11 1 Corinthians 6:11 NET (v.11) Some of you once lived this way. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:11 CEV (v.11) Some of you used to be like that. But now the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and the power of God's Spirit have washed you and made you holy and acceptable to God. NB Jesus is the God of the Old Testament Colossians 1:15-17 CEV (v.15) Christ is exactly like God, who cannot be seen. He is the first-born Son, superior to all creation. (v.16) Everything was created by him, everything in heaven and on earth, everything seen and unseen, including all forces and powers, and all rulers and authorities. All things were created by God's Son, and everything was made for him. (v.17) God's Son was before all else, and by him everything is held together. John 10:30-33 NET (v.30) [Christ said]The Father and Iare one." (v.31) The Jewish leaders picked up rocks again to stone him to death. (v.32) Jesus said to them, "I have shown you many good deeds from the Father. For which one of them are you going to stone me?" (v.33) The Jewish leaders replied, "We are not going to stone you for a good deed but for blasphemy, because you, a man, are claiming to be God." John 8:57-59 KJV (v.57) Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? (v.58) Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. (v.59) Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by. John 1:1-14 KJV (v.1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (v.14) And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, ... John 20:28 KJV (v.28) And [Doubting] Thomas answered and said unto him [the resurrected Jesus Christ],My Lord and my God. In the Beatitudes Jesus explained that all physical sin actually begins in the mind, so acceptance of homosexuality by 'straight' people is just as bad as if they were homosexuals themselves. Upon REPENTANCE, ALL sins WILL be forgiven, and that INCLUDES homosexuality.
Do you agree that prejudice attitudes toward African American and Native Americans were a common thread running through colonial societies?
Of course! And conversely, Native Americans and African Americans had and STILL HAVE prejudices toward other races. It is common and probably innate to be wary and feel prej…udicial toward anything that is different. Learning about the commonalities and goodness in each other is where the wary can drop the the wall of prejudice and friendship can begin to grow.
They felt they had a moral obligation to make change. /
