Ancient Chinese medical ethics and the four principles of biomedical ethics. (1/392)

The four principles approach to biomedical ethics (4PBE) has, since the 1970s, been increasingly developed as a universal bioethics method. Despite its wide acceptance and popularity, the 4PBE has received many challenges to its cross-cultural plausibility. This paper first specifies the principles and characteristics of ancient Chinese medical ethics (ACME), then makes a comparison between ACME and the 4PBE with a view to testing out the 4PBE's cross-cultural plausibility when applied to one particular but very extensive and prominent cultural context. The result shows that the concepts of respect for autonomy, non-maleficence, beneficence and justice are clearly identifiable in ACME. Yet, being influenced by certain socio-cultural factors, those applying the 4PBE in Chinese society may tend to adopt a "beneficence-oriented", rather than an "autonomy-oriented" approach, which, in general, is dissimilar to the practice of contemporary Western bioethics, where "autonomy often triumphs".  (+info)

The ambiguity about death in Japan: an ethical implication for organ procurement. (2/392)

In the latter half of the twentieth century, developed countries of the world have made tremendous strides in organ donation and transplantation. However, in this area of medicine, Japan has been slow to follow. Japanese ethics, deeply rooted in religion and tradition, have affected their outlook on life and death. Because the Japanese have only recently started to acknowledge the concept of brain death, transplantation of major organs has been hindered in that country. Currently, there is a dual definition of death in Japan, intended to satisfy both sides of the issue. This interesting paradox, which still stands to be fully resolved, illustrates the contentious conflict between medical ethics and medical progress in Japan.  (+info)

Body weight and mortality among adults who never smoked. (3/392)

In a 12-year prospective study, the authors examined the relation between body mass index (BMI) and mortality among the 20,346 middle-aged (25-54 years) and older (55-84 years) non-Hispanic white cohort members of the Adventist Health Study (California, 1976-1988) who had never smoked cigarettes and had no history of coronary heart disease, cancer, or stroke. In analyses that accounted for putative indicators (weight change relative to 17 years before baseline, death during early follow-up) of pre-existing illness, the authors found a direct positive relation between BMI and all-cause mortality among middle-aged men (minimum risk at BMI (kg/m2) 15-22.3, older men (minimum risk at BMI 13.5-22.3), middle-aged women (minimum risk at BMI 13.9-20.6), and older women who had undergone postmenopausal hormone replacement (minimum risk at BMI 13.4-20.6). Among older women who had not undergone postmenopausal hormone replacement, the authors found a J-shaped relation (minimum risk at BMI 20.7-27.4) in which BMI <20.7 was associated with a twofold increase in mortality risk (hazard ratio (HR) = 2.2, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.3, 3.5) that was primarily due to cardiovascular and respiratory disease. These findings not only identify adiposity as a risk factor among adults, but also raise the possibility that very lean older women can experience an increased mortality risk that may be due to their lower levels of adipose tissue-derived estrogen.  (+info)

Bioethics of the refusal of blood by Jehovah's Witnesses: Part 3. A proposal for a don't-ask-don't-tell policy. (4/392)

Of growing concern over Jehovah's Witnesses' (JWs) refusal of blood is the intrusion of the religious organisation into its members' personal decision making about medical care. The organisation currently may apply severe religious sanctions to JWs who opt for certain forms of blood-based treatment. While the doctrine may be maintained as the unchangeable "law of God", the autonomy of individual JW patients could still be protected by the organisation modifying its current policy so that it strictly adheres to the right of privacy regarding personal medical information. The author proposes that the controlling religious organisation adopt a "don't-ask-don't-tell" policy, which assures JWs that they would neither be asked nor compelled to reveal personal medical information, either to one another or to the church organisation. This would relieve patients of the fear of breach of medical confidentiality and ensure a truly autonomous decision on blood-based treatments without fear of organisational control or sanction.  (+info)

Jehovah's Witnesses' refusal of blood: obedience to scripture and religious conscience. (5/392)

Jehovah's Witnesses are students of the Bible. They refuse transfusions out of obedience to the scriptural directive to abstain and keep from blood. Dr Muramoto disagrees with the Witnesses' religious beliefs in this regard. Despite this basic disagreement over the meaning of Biblical texts, Muramoto flouts the religious basis for the Witnesses' position. His proposed policy change about accepting transfusions in private not only conflicts with the Witnesses' fundamental beliefs but it promotes hypocrisy. In addition, Muramoto's arguments about pressure to conform and coerced disclosure of private information misrepresent the beliefs and practices of Jehovah's Witnesses and ignore the element of individual conscience. In short, Muramoto resorts to distortion and uncorroborated assertions in his effort to portray a matter of religious faith as a matter of medical ethical debate.  (+info)

Attitudes to organ donation among South Asians in an English high street. (6/392)

In the UK, people of South Asian origin are at more than twice the risk of end-stage renal failure encountered in the Caucasian population but are under-represented among organ donors. Difficulties with matching mean that few donated kidneys are suitable for transplantation to South Asian recipients. A survey of attitudes in 100 South Asian adults was conducted in the main street of Southall, Middlesex. 90 of those questioned were aware of organ transplantation and 69 had heard about donor cards. However, the 16% who carried a donor card was lower than the 28% reported in the general population. The main reason for the low organ donation rate by South Asians seemed to be lack of knowledge, and this could be remedied by more targeting of information in the Asian media.  (+info)

Spiritual faith and genetic testing decisions among high-risk breast cancer probands. (7/392)

Despite widespread access to genetic testing for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 breast cancer susceptibility genes, little is known about rates or predictors of test use among individuals from newly ascertained high-risk families who have self-referred for genetic counseling/testing. The objective of this study was to examine rates of test use within this population. In addition, we sought to determine whether spiritual faith and psychological factors influenced testing decisions. Participants were 290 women with familial breast cancer. All were offered genetic counseling and testing for alterations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. Baseline levels of spiritual faith, cancer-specific distress, perceived risk, and demographic factors were examined to identify independent predictors of whether participants received versus declined testing. The final logistic model revealed statistically significant main effects for spiritual faith [odds ratio (OR), 0.2; 95% confidence intervals (CIs), 0.1 and 0.5] and perceived ovarian cancer risk (OR, 2.4; 95% CIs, 1.3 and 4.7) and a statistically significant spiritual faith by perceived risk interaction effect. Among women who perceived themselves to be at low risk of developing breast cancer again, those with higher levels of spiritual faith were significantly less likely to be tested, compared with those with lower levels of faith (OR, 0.2; 95% CIs, 0.1 and 0.5). However, among women with high levels of perceived risk, rates of test use were high, regardless of levels of spiritual faith (OR, 1.2; 95% CIs, 0.4 and 3.0).

BACKGROUND: For centuries talismans and amulets have been used in many cultures for their legendary healing powers. METHODS: We asked the parents of every child (Jews and Arabs) admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit over a 2 month period to complete a questionnaire, which included demographic data on the patient and the family, the use of talismans or other folk medicine practices, and the perception of the effects of these practices on the patient's well-being. A different questionnaire was completed by the ICU staff members on their attitude toward the use of amulets. RESULTS: Thirty percent of the families used amulets and talismans in the ICU, irrespective of the socioeconomic status of the family or the severity of the patient's illness. Amulets and talismans were used significantly more by religious Jews, by families with a higher parental educational level, and where the hospitalized child was very young. The estimated frequency of amulet use by the children's families, as perceived by the staff, was significantly higher than actual use reported by the parents. In Jewish families the actual use of amulets was found to be 30% compared to the 60% rate estimated by the medical staff; while in Moslem families the actual use was zero compared to the staff's estimation of about 36%. Of the 19 staff members, 14 reported that the use of amulets seemed to reduce the parents' anxiety, while 2 claimed that amulet use sometimes interfered with the staff's ability to carry out medical treatment. CONCLUSIONS: The use of talismans in a technologically advanced western society is more frequent than may have been thought. Medical and paramedical personnel dealing with very ill patients should be aware of the emotional and psychological implications of such beliefs and practices on patients and their families.  (+info)

I have worked with individuals in psychiatric hospitals and outpatient community mental health settings who suffered from schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders and whose symptoms included religiously-themed delusions. It would be difficult to mistake most of them for run-of-the-mill religious believers even though the line between religious delusion and the sort of beliefs held by some religious extremists can be fuzzy at times. Not only were their beliefs far outside what would be accepted by any religious tradition, but their religious beliefs were only one part of much larger syndromes. In most cases, one symptom does not make a mental disorder. Some specific religious beliefs can be held with delusional intensity by persons with psychotic disorders. But this is very different from asserting that anyone who holds any religious beliefs at all is mentally ill ...
The Church of Denmark (Den danske folkekirke) is state-supported and, according to statistics from January 2006, accounts for about 80% of Denmarks religious affiliation. Denmark has had religious freedom guaranteed since 1849 by the Constitution,[13] and numerous other religions are officially recognised,[14] including several Christian denominations, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu and other congregations as well as Forn Siðr, a revival of Scandinavian pagan tradition.[14] The Department of Ecclesiastical Affairs recognises roughly a hundred religious congregations for tax and legal purposes such as conducting wedding ceremonies. Islam is the second largest religion in Denmark. For historical reasons, there is a formal distinction between approved (godkendte) and recognised (anerkendte) congregations of faith.[14] The latter include 11 traditional denominations, such as Roman Catholics, the Reformed Church, the Mosaic Congregation, Methodists and Baptists, some of whose privileges in the ...
The Religion Department at Middlebury seeks to acquaint students with the worlds major religious traditions, with varieties of global religious experience, and with religious approaches to a broad range of topics and questions. We emphasize the study of individual religious traditions, because we hold that a solid understanding of one is crucial for developing an appreciation for other traditions and for religion as a fundamental human experience. We also maintain, however, that it is important for students to have experience with comparative approaches to the study of religion.
An opportunity to study ideology, science and religion, including both Christian and non-Christian religious traditions. We will focus on religious organisations, including cults, sects, denominations, churches and New Age movements, and their relationship to religious and spiritual belief and practice whilst discussing the relationship between different social groups and religious/spiritual organisations and movements, beliefs and practices.. ...
The most important conclusion of the present study is that differential fertility is a significant influence on trends in the strength of religious belief at the country level. This adds to earlier results suggesting that differential fertility is important for the growth of Christian denominations in the United States (Hout et al, 2001), and for future religiosity in most religious traditions worldwide (Kaufmann, 2008, 2010). The belief that differential fertility can affect trends in psychological and behavioral traits in human societies has been brought forward since the late 19th century as an implication of Darwinian evolutionary theory, and is still held by many researchers today (Lynn, 2011; Rowthorn, 2011). However, empiric evidence linking differential fertility for any behavioral trait to country-level trends in the trait has never been presented in comparative studies. The results presented here for religion provide the first empiric evidence that this theoretically postulated link ...
No matter each persons religious beliefs (or lack of them); one cant deny that the effects of religion on the brain must be interesting to learn about.
Evidence suggests that religiosity can be a pathway to both mental health and mental disorder. For example, religiosity is positively associated with mental disorders that involve an excessive amount of self-control and negatively associated with mental disorders that involve a lack of self-control.[25] Other studies have found indications of mental health among both the religious and the secular. For instance, Vilchinsky & Kravetz found negative correlations with psychological distress among religious and secular subgroups of Jewish students.[26] In addition, intrinsic religiosity has been inversely related to depression in the elderly, while extrinsic religiosity has no relation or even a slight positive relation to depression.[27][28] Religiosity has been found to mitigate the negative impact of injustice and income inequality on life satisfaction.[29][30] The link between religion and mental health may be due to the guiding framework or social support that it offers to individuals.[31] By ...
This definition will have the consequence that groups and organisations shall be included in the database that either (a) are not religions according to the self-understanding of the organisations themselves, and (b) are not regarded as religions under the current Finnish law. Furthermore, (c) the database includes some groups that do not fulfil the above definition but are included for the reason that they derive a part of their concepts and practices from some of the great religious traditions of the world. Many contemporary forms of health-related exercises such as yoga or Tai Chi have their origin in Eastern religious traditions, but which are presently practiced mostly for their immediate health or other secular benefits rather than for some esoteric or existential reasons. The reason for including these groups is that they provide important data for the historical and comparative studies of such traditions ...

Ken,. If this judgement implied that a belief in anthropogenic climate was faith rather than evidence based, then it would be a very bad judgement.. No judgement should ever rely on this way of distinguishing between religious and non-religious beliefs. Judges should make it clear that they are not relying on this distinction.. The problem is where invoking this distinction leads.. Relying on the faith/evidence distinction risks placing courts and tribunals in a position where they have to rule whether a particular belief is so strongly supported by evidence and argument that it does not require an appeal to faith (imagine the headline: Judge rules Jesus rose from dead!).. In addition, it risks ruling that some religions are not, in fact, religions at all because their adherents believe that they are supported by evidence rather than faith.. Arguments about scientific proof are a red herring. The choice is not between science or faith. Many beliefs are supported by evidence and argument ...

A major or minor in religion at Drake University is a study of sacred texts and their interpretation, of theological and ethical reasoning, of the breadth of religious thinking and practice, and of the meaning of the religious quest for a comprehensive understanding of reality. Courses can prepare students for an understanding of the diverse religious traditions of the world, for graduate professional training for ministry, for an active religious life, or for critical reflection on the ways in which human communities experience and describe the sacred.. In addition to the possibilities that the study of religion itself offers, the size of the department affords the luxury of really getting to know our students, offering collaborative learning between faculty and students. The faculty, values time spent with students beyond the classroom, engaging in conversation, mentoring students and building community.. ...

How do we stay true to ourselves in a multicultural context? That was the question posed to a series of panels at the University of Toronto this past week. The event took place a week after the massacre of six Muslims at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec, and was seen as another expression of the solidarity that exists between various religious traditions in Canada. The event opened with a moment of silent prayer of remembrance for the victims and their families. The first panel was made up of Rabbi Ed Elkin, spiritual leader of the First Narayever Congregation in Toronto, John Dadosky, a Catholic professor of theology and philosophy at Regis College, and Muneed Nasir, a prominent local Muslim leader, President of the
Among the clubs and organizations youll find numerous religious groups. Some are well organized, and some are very informal. Choosing a religious group is an important decision. We want to offer you some information that will help you make an informed, free choice.. Healthy religious groups will tell you a lot about themselves, who they are, what they stand for, and what they expect from you. An open and responsible group will offer an easy entrance and more importantly an easy exit to their group. Within the health group one finds an appreciation of diversity, an openness to criticism and doubt, and affirmation of other religious traditions. Healthy groups encourage the the individuals comfort and growth and support the college experience.. There are several organized and informal campus religious groups that use high-pressure recruiting tactics. Listing names would be a waste of time since the names can change frequently. However, you can identify these groups by what they do.. ...
Retreats to a defense of compatibilism (between science and religion) on the basis of its logical possibility misses the point, by and large. Certainly there is a way to engineer ones God beliefs in a way that carefully navigates around any conflicts with scientifically justified knowledge. And certainly that are people who claim to be both, although the fact that people, given their general propensity to inconsistent belief systems, do it is a pretty weak justification. There will be a couple of problems with this project, as I see it. First, the notion of God that has been adapted (ad hoc) to avoid any conflicts with scientific knowledge ends up pretty impoverished not very philosophically interesting or significant. He doesnt have a brain, so hes not conscious, and so on. Second, the engineered notion of God is miles away from the sort of being that the vast majority of believers believe in and the one that is the center of the major religious traditions. So going to church on Sunday and ...

Automobile name loans include handing over a vehicle name and extra group of secrets in return for cash centered on a portion regarding the car’s value. In both instances, borrowers usually spend yearly rates of interest well above 300 %, and it’s likely that they are going to need another loan to settle the very first one. Each year, combined, the products simply take approximately $8 billion in interest and charges from the pouches of struggling families and communities and place those huge amounts of bucks to the arms of loan providers.. These expenses are mainly unneeded. Better credit choices may occur for several borrowers, while they may possibly not be available immediately. Noncredit optionsвЂsuch as turning to relatives and buddies, regional religious congregations, or general public support programsвЂare less dangerous as well as are not likely resulting in exactly the same degree of economic damage.

Bogota, New Jersey, a borough of about 8,000, sits along the Hackensack River, just 15 minutes from New York City. Its a diverse town, and as people come and go, the demographics change. Between 2000 and 2010, the number of Hispanic residents nearly doubled.. Imos and Jodie Wu pastor Bogart Memorial Reformed Church in Bogota. Many of Bogarts members, like Imos himself, are Taiwanese immigrants, while others, like Jodie, are Caucasian Americans, so the congregation already knows a thing or two about being a multiethnic church. Still, wanting to grow more culturally agile, a team from the church joined an RCA learning community aimed at helping churches connect with neighborhoods that have changed over the years.. Over the course of the learning community, the Wus and their team had a new idea: plant a Hispanic congregation within Bogart Memorial.. Our thought is that starting [a separate] ethnic church is always what happens, and it keeps people in their own ethnic area, says Jodie. Our idea ...
Maybe you could argue it isnt a womans place to preach and let her invite a pastor instead, you can remind her of that each remark (without letting your kids find out ofcourse), it is quite common in many religions so dont feel bad. If she would agree and even find a pastor you might have a couple of hours of indoctrination a month instead of every possible moment from a relative and not some stranger theyll probably never see again. Anyway I wouldnt worry, its too short a time to really indoctrinate your kids will just grow over it once in another setting without the dependancy and family factors ...

On the question of engineering v. science, it is partly just a cultural difference. Engineers are expected to have conventional solutions to a wide range of problems. Scientists on the other hand generally are faced with a wide range of problems for which there are no solutions and their charge is to discover some. When you are doing good science, you really are in a uncertain situation, it takes a certain kind of calm and self-assurance to cope with that uncertainty for years and years. I dont think that kind of environment appeals to the religious. They seem to have a kind of fetish about certainty. So perhaps it is natural that the religious gravitate towards engineering instead of science. There are no doubt plenty of brilliant engineers who are confronted with similar difficulties to those of science when developing hardware or software for truly novel applications and uses. Like the engineers who developed the four computer decision system for the avionics of the shuttle. For the time and ...
I had a long conversation last night with a friend. Shes writing a piece about her experience on this journey with me. And we began talking about the congregation I serve. I am struggling with them because I believe they are stuck, are happy being a family or a club and have little interest in following Christ. This, I believe, is the reason they have not had a new member in oh, lets say 10 years. The pastor who preceded me worked long and hard to transform them (transform being what I think is the latest Presby-speak for trying to revitalize a congregation). She left/was fired after a tenure of 7 years there. They didnt have an interim for two years and then I was called as a designated. When I came, I wanted to do some visioning. I was told not to use the v word. There was lots I was told not to do because my predecessor had dome them and the congregation wasnt happy. And so, I did what I thought needed to be done and used different words. Which was probably a mistake ...

All annual budget drives, no matter the form, involve asking congregants for input regarding what is or isnt working for the congregation. ...
Origins: Among the pantheon of characters commonly associated with the Christmas season (both the religious holiday and the secular wintertime celebrations), the beloved persona of Santa Claus is somewhat distinctive in that his appearance is neither one that has been solidified through centuries of religious tradition nor one that sprang fully-formed from the imagination of a modern-day writer or artist. Santa Claus is instead a hybrid, a character descended from a religious figure (St. Nicholas) whose physical appearance and backstory were created and shaped by many different hands over the course of years until he finally coalesced into the now familiar (secular) character of a jolly, rotund, red-and-white garbed father figure who oversees a North Pole workshop manned by elves and travels in a sleigh pulled by eight reindeer to deliver toys to children all around the world every Christmas Eve. (Among the many persons who had a hand in creating the modern Santa Claus figure, some of the most ...
Advices and queries are not a call to increased activity by each individual Friend but a reminder of the insights of the Society. Within the community there is a diversity of gifts. We are all therefore asked to consider how far the advices and queries affect us personally and where our own service lies. There will also be diversity of experience, of belief and of language. Friends maintain that expressions of faith must be related to personal experience. Some find traditional Christian language full of meaning; some do not. Our understanding of our own religious tradition may sometimes be enhanced by insights of other faiths. The deeper realities of our faith are beyond precise verbal formulation and our way of worship based on silent waiting testifies to this ...

Faith is the commitment of ones consciousness to beliefs for which one has no sensory evidence or rational proof. When a person rejects reason as their standard of judgment, only one alternative standard remains to them: feelings. A mystic is a person who treats feelings as tools of cognition. Faith is the equation of feeling with knowledge. To practice the virtue of faith, one must be willing to suspend ones sight and ones judgment; one must be willing to live with the unintelligible, with that which cannot be conceptualized or integrated into the rest of ones knowledge, and to induce a trance like illusion of understanding. One must be willing to repress ones critical faculty and hold it as ones guilt; one must be willing to drown any questions that rise in protest-to strangle any trust of reason convulsively seeking to assert its proper function as the protector of ones life and cognitive integrity. The human need for self-esteem entails the need for a sense of control over ...

One of the most startling developments of the late twentieth century has been the emergence within every major religious tradition of a militant piety popularly known as fundamentalism. Its manifestations are sometimes shocking. Fundamentalists have gunned down worshippers in a mosque, have killed doctors and nurses who work in abortion clinics, have shot their presidents, and have even toppled a powerful government. It is only a small minority of fundamentalists who commit such acts of terror, but even the most peaceful and law-abiding are perplexing, because they seem so adamantly opposed to many of the most positive values of modern society. Fundamentalists have no time for democracy, pluralism, religious toleration, peacekeeping, free speech, or the separation of church and state. Christian fundamentalists reject the discoveries of biology and physics about the origins of life and insist that the Book of Genesis is scientifically sound in every detail. At a time when many are throwing off ...

When you study the worlds religious traditions, you learn about the histories, literatures, practices and beliefs that have shaped human societies. You study rituals and festivals that organize perceptions of time and place, disciplines that develop modes of attention, and ideas of holiness, justice, love, and beauty through which human beings have expressed their highest ideals. You develop tools to understand the complex ways that people across history and around the world oppose oppression, justify violence, understand their bodies, and give meaning to their lives.

1. Restrictive Regulation. The Soviet state subjected religious organizations and believers to restrictive regulation and vague laws that left room for arbitrary enforcement. Religious organizations also faced attempts to reduce or manipulate religious influence in the public sphere in favor of the state. How have these regulations been dismantled or to what extent do they remain? To what extent do mindsets of state control of belief and believers remain?. 2. Effects of the Soviet State on Majority Religions. To survive, majority religious organizations were forced to adapt and cooperate with the Soviet state. To what extent has this compromised or limited the ability of religious organizations to function independently in the post-Soviet era? Has this had an effect on the trust of the public on religious organizations or on expectations of how religious organizations should interact in public life? How have majority religions approached their relationship with the state?. 3. Restrictions and ...
Ayaan Hirsi Ali joins Peter Robinson to discuss her new book, The Challenge of Dawa: Political Islam as Ideology and Movement and How to Contain It, and her views on the challenges facing Western civilization in regards to political Islam. She argues that Islam needs to be separated into two different parts, one part of religion and the other part, political philosophy. She concedes that many aspects of the religious part of Islam are peaceful but argues that the political side is much more concerning due to its focus on Dawa, which means to plead or to call non-Muslims to Islam. This call to convert people to Islam is what she argues was a driving force behind the spread of Islam throughout history. She discusses the critiques of the philosopher Karl Popper of communism and fascism and how they relate directly to the ideologies of Islam. She argues that the language of appeasement often used toward radical Islamic terrorism is too gentle and that discussions of how to deal with Islam need to ...

See also: Jihadism, for the more recent militant political version of Islam. Islam is a monotheistic Abrahamic religion based on the teachings of Muhammad (or often Mohammed and other variants), a seventh century Arab who, according to Muslim belief, was an agent of divine action. Muhammad was also born to the descendents of Abraham. Muhammed claimed to have received revelations from Allah via the archangel Gabriel, which were written in the Quran (Koran) - thus forming the core teachings of Islam. The word Islam means submission (to Allah) in Arabic. Islam as originally designed in the Quran presents itself as an Abrahamic faith and has Moses in it[1] as well as Jesus as a prophet in Islam,[2] but not as Gods son. Islam has been criticized for some time, due to its demanding of strict submissiveness especially of women, and its predisposition to being violent suspicious of other faiths and attacking other faiths deemed a threat to Islam, as a result there have been over 16,000 terrorist ...
The Brief RCOPE is a 14-item measure of religious coping with major life stressors. As the most commonly used measure of religious coping in the literature, it has helped contribute to the growth of knowledge about the roles religion serves in the process of dealing with crisis, trauma, and transition. This paper reports on the development of the Brief RCOPE and its psychometric status. The scale developed out of Pargaments (1997) program of theory and research on religious coping. The items themselves were generated through interviews with people experiencing major life stressors. Two overarching forms of religious coping, positive and negative, were articulated through factor analysis of the full RCOPE. Positive religious coping methods reflect a secure relationship with a transcendent force, a sense of spiritual connectedness with others, and a benevolent world view. Negative religious coping methods reflect underlying spiritual tensions and struggles within oneself, with others, and with the divine

Islam is fundamentally in its very nature a natural religion. Throughout the Quran Gods signs (Ayats) are referred to as the natural phenomenon, the law and order of the universe, the exactitudes and consequences of the relations between natural phenomenon in cause and effect. Over and over, the stars, sun, moon, earthquakes, fruits of the earth and trees are mentioned as the signs of divine power, divine law and divine order. Even in the Ayeh of Noor, divine is referred to as the natural phenomenon of light and even references are made to the fruit of the earth. During the great period of Islam, Muslims did not forget these principles of their religion. Alas, Islam which is a natural religion in which Gods miracles are the very law and order of nature drifted away and is still drifting away, even in Pakistan, from science which is the study of those very laws and orders of nature.……Islam is a natural religion of which the Ayats are the universe in which we live and move and have our ...
RNS) The latest in a long line of studies, now numbering in the hundreds, if not thousands, shows that church attendance is good for your health.. Published in May by researchers from Vanderbilt University, the study found that middle-aged adults who attended religious services at least once in the past year were half as likely to die prematurely as those who didnt.. Using data from a National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the studys researchers examined 10 biological stress markers among 5,449 men and women aged 46 to 65. They then compared those markers with respondents self-reported religious service attendance and found a correlation between religious service attendance, lower stress and longevity.. The study adds to mounting scientific findings on the subject. A far larger study, of 74,534 women, published last year found that attending a religious service more than once per week was associated with 33 percent lower ...
This prospective study uses data from the Nurses Health Study to evaluate associations between attendance at religious services and mortality in women.
From the Psalms in the Bible to the sacred rivers in Hinduism, the natural world has been integral to the worlds religions. John Grim and Mary Evelyn Tucker contend that todays growing environmental challenges make the relationship ever more vital. This primer explores the history of religious traditions and the environment, illustrating how religious teachings and practices both promoted and at times subverted sustainability. Subsequent chapters examine the emergence of religious ecology, as views of nature changed in religious traditions and the ecological sciences. Yet the authors argue that religion and ecology are not the province of institutions or disciplines alone. They describe four fundamental aspects of religious life: orienting, grounding, nurturing, and transforming. Readers then see how these phenomena are experienced in a Native American religion, Orthodox Christianity, Confucianism, and Hinduism. Ultimately, Grim and Tucker argue that the engagement of religious communities is ...

Harris: The crucial point of confusion is that we have been sold this meme of Islamaphobia where every criticism of the doctrine of Islam gets conflated with bigotry toward Muslims as people and that is intellectually ridiculous.. Affleck: …So you are saying that Islamaphobia is not a real thing?. Maher: Well, its not a real thing when we do it…It truly isnt.. Harris: …Ben, we have to be able to criticize bad ideas.. Affleck: Of course we do!. Harris: But Islam is the mother lode of bad ideas at the moment.. Maher: Thats just a fact.. Affleck: Thats not a fact! Its an ugly thing to say.. This debate about Islam is ubiquitous in the West and I think it points to Girards warning against Western arrogance. Sam Harris is very careful to say that he isnt suffering from Islamaphobia when he critiques Islam. Maher even states that when they critique Islam it truly isnt being Islamaphobic. But then Harris goes on to say that Islam is the mother lode of bad ideas at the moment and Maher ...
HB 305, An Act relating to a mandatory exemption for certain residences owned by a religious organization, was filed by Rep. Berta Gardner (D-Anchorage) to undo legislation that Clary had successfully lobbied for in 2006, with the willing assistance of then-Sen. Ben Stevens (R-Anchorage), who wrote the legislation, and then-Sen.-Lyda Green (R-Wasilla), who sponsored it. The 2006 legislation had broadened state law on property tax exemptions for religious organizations to include church-owned housing occupied by religious school teachers and leaders of church ministries like music. It also broadened the definition of a minister to include anyone ordained according to the standards of the religious organization who was employed by that organization to carry out a ministry - essentially permitting religious organizations that were so inclined to ordain anyone they wanted to claim held a ministry, and for church-owned housing occupied by that minister to be tax-exempt. The 2006 legislation ...

Differences between Islam and radical Islam Islam is a religion that originated in the 7th century. It is the religion of peace and its followers are known as Muslims. From when the religion was first revealed till today, there have been many different interpretations of various verses of the Holy book in Islam which has led to a difference of opinion […]
The idea of Sanatana Islam has been set out to explore and discuss possible relationship between the two great religious streams of the Indian subcontinent, while considering both their similarities and differences and the causes thereof.. Sanatana is an adjective generally prefixed before the word Dharma to express its antiquity and continuity. Islam is a word used both as a noun and also as an adjective before the word Al-Deen. As noun, it stands for a religious tradition that began with Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), meaning peace and complete surrender to One God, and as a prefix it signifies a religion which teaches about peace and complete surrender to One God.. There are some unique and overlapping claims. The proponents of Sanatana Dharma say that it is the original and oldest body of persuasions, which have changed but not much across human history. The adherents of Islam have belief that Islam is the original religion conveyed down the ages from the first man onwards and ...

The Eastern Rite Catholic Churches are churches that follow the ancient liturgical traditions of the East, while being in full communion with the Roman Catholic Church and placing themselves under the ultimate authority of the Bishop of Rome. Some of these churches, like the Orthodox Church, follow the Byzantine tradition, while others follow other liturgical traditions. The history of each Eastern Rite Catholic church is unique, some having sided with Rome at the time of the Great Schism and some being joined to Rome after that time. They are sometimes referred to as Uniates, a term which many Eastern Catholics reject as derrogatory. Many of these churches have a direct non-Catholic (usually Orthodox or Oriental counterpart. Others exist only within the Catholic Communion. ...

In his recent State of the Union Address, U.S. president George W. Bush strongly defended his countrys massive bombing of Afghanistan. In the course of his speech, he referred more than once to the concept of civilized people standing together in order to combat the barbarism - of whom? - The uncivilized Muslim peoples. He didnt quite say that, but it is undoubtedly what he meant.. Since the Middle Ages, when Crusaders left the shores of Europe on horseback, on foot, and in sailing boats - not F16 fighters and B52 bombers - Western writers, pseudo-intellectuals, speechmakers and self- identified luminaries on Islam and the Middle East, have indulged in an endless stream of rhetoric directed against the supposed barbarism of Islam and the Muslim World.. In his book called The Liberal Islam, Charles Kurzman points out that Western racism poses a serious challenge to the renaissance of Islam, because for centuries, the West has constructed an image of Islam as the Other, identifying ...
I think you are spot on in one sense, that Islam is a sociopathic religion contrived by a sociopath, either as an historic person or contrived mythological entity. However, I think youre being much to understanding of the Islamopanderers in thinking that they dont understand. I think many of them understand perfectly and that theyre sociopaths themselves utilizing Islam (and whatever else) simply as a tool to generate, maintain and protect their own malignant narcissism, sanctimony and grandiosity. I say this as evidenced by their abject, instantaneous and explosive rage or, to put it mildly, their inappropriate affect, over those disagreeing with them about Islam, Ben Affleck, for instance. The Internet is rife with videos of leftists (and Muslims) going berserk when challenged about Islam/Muslims. These are people defending their own pathology, not people who give a rats about Islam or any other leftist and or liberal cause.. ...
It was revealed this week that a Scottish NHS trust is paying the Catholic Church £30,000 a year to provide out-of-hours spiritual care, largely to ensure that dying patients receive the last rites.. The Edinburgh Secular Society condemned the deal, saying it found it strange that the well-funded Catholic Church requires the tax-payers of Scotland to top up its coffers.. Garry McLelland, chair of the ESS said: I would find it strange if the Catholic Church was to leave one of its members lying in hospital without providing a service because the state refuses to foot the bill.. NHS Lothian has entered into the service level agreement with the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh. While the Church banks the money, members of the clergy receive £10 per week for their work. A previous arrangement, whereby a chaplain from the RC Church was employed at a salary of £56,000 a year was scrapped because of poor on-call service..

Auseinandersetzung mit einer strittigen Frage, mit dem Referenten Dr. Werner Höbsch, Absolvent der PTHV, aus Bonn statt. Die Frage, ob der Islam zu Deutschland gehört, löst meist eine emotional geführte Debatte aus. Doch was meint die Aussage, der Islam gehört bzw. gehört nicht zu Deutschland? Ist sie religions- oder kulturgeschichtlich zu verstehen? Kommt ihr eine normative Bedeutung zu? Zahlreiche Bürgerinnen und Bürger stimmen der Feststellung von Politikern zu, der Islam gehöre nicht zu Deutschland und nicht zu Europa. Was ist mit „dem Islam gemeint und was sind die Konsequenzen dieser ablehnenden Haltung und dieses Denkens? Wie zeigt sich der Islam und religiöses Leben von Muslimen in Deutschland? Im Vortrag wird die Frage nach der geschichtlichen und kulturellen Bedeutung des Islams für Europa ...
Richard Dawkins has warned against Islam as the most evil religion, stirring up further controversy with his anti-religious comments. The evolutionary biologist and confirmed atheist warned that it was virtually impossible to study English literature without knowing the background of Christianity.. According to a report from The Telegraph, Mr Dawkins was being interviewed at the Cheltenham Science Festival, promoting his new book Science in the soul. He warned that Islam was the most evil religion in the world, and said that moderate Muslims were the biggest victims of fanatical ideology.. The Telegraph reported him as saying: Its tempting to say all religions are bad, and I do say all religions are bad, but its a worse temptation to say all religions are equally bad, because theyre not.. If you look at the actual impact that different religions have on the world, its quite apparent that at present the most evil religion in the world has to be Islam.. Its terribly important to modify ...

Ive been watching your Jesus or Muhammad series on ABN. And I do agree that radical Islam is a serious problem. However, I do not think we should condemn an entire religion based upon its most radical elements. When you condemn Islam as a whole, you instantly condemn 1.5 billion people worldwide. Here is how I view it: Youre never going to convince the vast majority of Muslims to abandon their religious faith. Therefore, it would make more since to attack Osama Bin Ladens version of Islam and build bridges with Muslims who adhere to a more peaceful Islam. The average Muslim does not believe in killing women, children and innocent men. But, of course, you will argue that Bin Ladens version of Islam is authentic Islam, which traces its roots back to Muhammad. But the average Muslim does not accept this interpretation of Islam. Why would you want to convince peaceful Muslims that radical Islam is authentic Islam? If you really want to stop Islamic terrorism you would build bridges with peaceful ...
