"Every-one is Equal and Must be Treated in Exactly the Same Way"

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Section C "Every-one is Equal and Must be Treated in Exactly the Same Way" Equal means to have the same amount of something, matching results or the same rights. In this question, I think it is saying that every-one is made in the exact same way, so must be treated the same. I don't think this is necessarily true, as although every-one has the same rights, people and their qualities are different. Every-one has the right to education, yet not every-one has a right to become a doctor.

Not all Christians believe that every-one is equal. In churches woman are not aloud to do certain jobs, as this is against the bible. The church encourages sexism in Deuteronomy as it tells of how a man can rape a woman, and then marry her. It also says a man can divorce his wife, yet she can't divorce him, not even in the case of adultery!!! Yet in galations 3.28 it says "Jews are equal to gentiles as man is to women". This discourages sexism. Despite this the catholic church accepts olnl men as candidates for preisthood because Jesus' disciples were all men and that has been a tradition. ...read more.
