RLG224Y - Tuesday, September 21, 2010 Sexual abuse is a form of murder - a child can never be normal again after that - the life of the spirit is damaged after that - in the church, they teach about the life of the spirit, but they are sometimes the perpetrators - many people we see as alcoholics or drug abusers, have past sexual abuse which has caused them to go down such paths - if women could be ordained in the church, the sexual abuse scandals would come to a halt because women have a sort of sensitivity towards the children Each one of us lives as an individual, but not an island - we try to find our ethical position in respect to other people (friends, church, university) Peter Burger - What is society? - we should begin to understand society as a dialectical phenomenon - phase one : society creates us and gives rise to us, it is there prior to our own individual consciousness society is a group of control mechanisms (harsh/benign) and it keeps us in line if we push things beyond a certain point, it will come down on us violence and force is the method of last resort to establish order - jail, punishment, capital punishment in some places life is like a concentration camp or prison - there are ways that society is controlling us

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
