Respond to two classmates poster
1) Now that we are looking at these several articles, I can confidently say that one of the main reasons as to why the Islamic garb has been banned is because of the sustainment of their overall freedom of expression, one of the basic right that us Americans are privileged to have. In my opinion, I believe this provides more harmful than beneficial effects, as the text demonstrates several negative effects which the banning of the Islamic garb has had. For example, weapons and illegal substances can be concealed and hidden, as well as hidden. This is already bad enough, not to mention the social life limitation and the elimination of the display of a unique identity. When looking at what kinds of coverings are really what bring danger, it is said by many that what causes threats is the body coverings and not the face coverings because it is so much simpler so use the body covering to conceal something illegal and harmful. I truly don’t believe that wearing a religious garb poses some sort of threat to anyone’s safety and security, especially a threat worthy of falling under the national security title and protocol. It is stated that the Qur’an does not require women to cover their faces in public. “The Holy Quran does not mandate wearing of hijab or headgear for Muslim women”.

2) In the article ‘From France to Denmark…’ the main argument for the ban was that not only it posed a security threat, but lawmakers believe that those who wear the religious garments are not free because they are “deprived of all identity” (Tan, Aug. 16) amongst other reasonings. In the Time article, the main argument against the ban was that it was “racist, Islamophobic, and oppressive politics” (Sabina, quoted in Hustad, 2018). The ban on Islamic garb is a huge issue of freedom of religious expression. As stated by Hustad, “Sabina started wearing the niqab two years ago as a way to feel more connected to God[.]” (2018). It is not required, but some people use the niqab as religious expression and show commitment to their religion. The Qur’an does not require women to cover their faces in public, rather dress modestly and cover the head, neck, and chest area. “O Profit! Say to your wives, your daughters, and the women of the believers that: they should let down upon themselves their jalabib” (The Qur’an 33:59, as cited by Rizvi, n.d.). When it comes to national security, I think there could be an argument made about the threat due to a lack of outward identification, but I don’t think it’s something that should be taken as a ‘threat’. Although some may say that because of 9/11 there should yield some sort of national security issues with religious garb, there needs to be an understanding that just because someone wears religious garb does not mean they are considered a threat. Likely, sometimes in anti-Semitic countries there is backlash if someone wears a kippah (O’Connor, 2021), and Sikhs who wear a turban are also still subject to violence even a decade and a half after 9/11 (Venkatraman, 2022). It was interesting to go about the mask mandate and see what places allowed what types of face coverings. When there are mask mandates, I think more people wouldn’t question it because we all wore a ‘mask’ of some sort.

“thesis topic”

“Thesis Topic”
Jesus’ crucifixion demonstrates to us that love triumphs over death.
Paper must show evidence
of in-depth consideration of your topic and must attempt to explain the topic’s relevance
to yourself and your worldview. You need not agree with the “traditional” view, and
should draw our own conclusions based upon your research. The focus is for you to research
and ask the hard questions about yourself, beliefs and draw your own conclusions. This
means taking time to read your sources enough to form an educated opinion. The
objective is to see “you” in the paper, and to ask what significance does this have for
you? Therefore, your paper should include the following:
Throughout the paper I want to see “you” and why this is significant for
you, (i.e. this should be personal, in the end or throughout, tell me what
makes it personal.) “After my research, I believe, or in this section I have
discovered, ……”
 Accurately cited sources (APA, see little brown handbook), For Bible
citations, just use chapter and verse, long quotes are not necessary.
 NO plagiarism, this includes usage of websites, online commentaries, or
thoughts and ideas that are not your own. If any of the above is used, it
must be carefully cited and used sparingly in the paper.
4 or more accredited sources, properly sited.

O copy the passage (literally re-type it!) and provide the page number in parenthesis.

The purpose of these papers is to foster thoughtful
engagement with the day’s reading material, develop a practice of writing concise summaries, and facilitate
preparedness for class discussion. These responses will pull a particular phrase, sentence, or passage from one of
the readings of the day and analyze it. Your response should do a few things:
o Copy the passage (literally re-type it!) and provide the page number in parenthesis.
o Situate the passage within the larger context of the work as a whole.
o Analyze why this passage is of significance: how does it illuminate something about evil, suffering, and
theodicy and the tradition in question?
o Draw connections between this passage and other material you have engaged so far in the course: How does
it compare or contrast, what new ideas or complications does it introduce to our discussion of theodicy and
the historical development of addressing suffering and evil as part of the human condition?
o Your response should always conclude with a couple of questions that remain for you after finishing the
readings for the session: what is still unclear or confusing? What do you want to know more about? Etc.
the book of revelations is the one u need to copy and paste the passage from…
the new testaments is just used to compare the two articles
make sure u ask 3 questions at the end
