Transcript of Is it Fair?
Why Help? Equality and Human Dignity
Dignity, Equality and Wealth
Is it Fair? Part 1
Wants and Needs- Wealth
What about women?
Many people around the world do not have what they need to survive. Many people also have more than they need and choose to use their wealth to help others. All religions teach this is a good idea and a great way of getting into Heaven
Key charities to mention: Christian Aid, Salvation Army, CAFOD (like a Catholic Oxfam)
Key quotes: 'money is the root of all evil', 'it is easier for a camel to fit through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get to Heaven', 'love thy neighbour'
Key actions: giving to charity, tithing, not gambling, not charging interest on loans
All religions teach that we should treat others with respect regardless of age, gender, race etc. They believe that everyone should be treated with human dignity.
Key quotes: 'there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, we are all one in Jesus Christ', 'love thy neighbour', 'treat others how you want to be treated', 'let us make man in our image'
These same quotes can be used to explain why people should be treated equally. They support the concept of human rights.
Article 1 of the UN Declaration of Human Rights states that 'All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in the spirit of brotherhood'. This, of course, doesn't always guarantee that people WILL be treated equally, but it's a nice try!
Although the previous teachings indicate that everyone should be treated equally, historically this hasn't always been the case where women are concerned.
Explain from two religious traditions the teachings on equality (6 marks)
Women are allowed to be vicars but cannot be Bishops
Refer to Bible stories like Luke 10:38-42 in which Jesus has a religious discussion with Mary and John 4:1-42 in which Jesus has a discussion with a Samarian woman at a well
A much more progressive approach following classic quotes like 'love thy neighbour'
Women are not allowed to become priests
St Paul 'I do not permit women to have authority over men'
Point to the fact that Jesus and all of his disciples were male
However, many Catholics believe women are equal, they just have different roles.
'Everyone should be treated equally' (8 marks)
