• The body of Christ and Alzheimer's disease a theological account of the church's capability and responsibility to respond well to Alzheimer's disease

      Mayrand, Nicholas S. (eCommons, 2012-01-01)
      This thesis shows that the church has both the responsibility and capability to meet the challenges of Alzheimer's disease. Although Alzheimer's disease appears to destroy memory, a communal understanding of memory points to the need for those with Alzheimer's disease to have a community to help them remember. Herbert McCabe's account of human existence shows that such a community exists because of the person of Jesus and his resurrection, cleverly avoiding the confusion involved with discussion about the nature of the human soul. With the institution of the church as the Body of Christ, hierarchies are radically reversed as the weak and forgotten become vital members joined in a new way of living. The story of Basil of Caesarea provides an example of how the Body of Christ can function in this manner. However, liberalism, with its emphasis on the rational, autonomous chooser, is shown to be incommensurable with the Body of Christ. As Christ's body, the church possesses practices of presence that can support those who are overlooked in liberal society, including those with Alzheimer's disease. These practices include prayer, the Eucharist, and funeral rights. Furthermore, a renewed emphasis on the virtues of Christian love, patience, and memory can inspire and support the church as it aims its practices towards those with Alzheimer's disease.

    • The cantadores, poets improvisers of the cantoria. A tradition in movement in the Northeast of Brazil

      Depuis 1992, plusieurs enquêtes de terrain sur les joutes poétiques ont été menées au Brésil, en collaboration avec le CORDAE, permettant la constitution d'un corpus de témoignages, de chants et de poèmes improvisés. A partir de ces matériaux ethnographiques, j'ai entrepris de rédiger une thèse sous la direction de Sory CAMARA, à la suite du mémoire de DEA soutenu en 2000 à l'Université Victor Segalen-Bordeaux II. En 2006, un C.D. présentant une sélection des enregistrements réalisés, accompagnés d'un livret de 96 pages illustré, a été édité dans la collection "Mémoires sonores" par le CORDAE (Cordes-sur-ciel, 81170), sous le titre : "Repentistas nordestinos : troubadours actuels du Nordeste du Brésil", auteurs: Daniel LODDO et Thierry ROUGIER.
    • The Capacity of the Black Protestant Church to Provide Social Ministry in Post-Katrina New Orleans

      Truehill, Marshall, Jr. (ScholarWorks@UNO, 2008-12-19)
      This research is an ethnography which investigates the effects of Hurricane Katrina upon the capacity of African American Protestant churches in New Orleans to provide spiritual and social ministry to the city's underprivileged. More than three years after Hurricane Katrina unleashed its fury upon the city, fifty per cent of the churches remain as the hurricane left them. Pre-Katrina, fifty per cent of the population lived at or below the poverty line and depended upon faith-based programs as part of their support network and ladder toward selfsufficiency. Because of the disaster, there was substantive loss of parishioners, financial resources, and program operational infrastructure that severely limited or destroyed faith-based capacity to serve. The purpose of the study is to examine what social vulnerabilities and barriers hinder churches' capacity to serve community needs in four particular areas, including providing and advocating for affordable housing, quality health care, strategies for eliminating poverty, and disaster evacuation education, preparedness and response. The researcher hypothesizes that structural and institutional racism were already undermining that capacity pre-Katrina and continues to hinder it more than three years since. The study investigates the veracity of this hypothesis. It attempts to offer strategies to help mitigate the social vulnerabilities and increase the community's resiliency and sustainability against future disasters. This research is important because it provides increased awareness and understanding of how pre-existing social vulnerabilities in combination with Hurricane Katrina contributed to the lingering diminished capacity of the church and community. It also provides insight into how the faith community's attitude and action toward handling its vulnerabilities lead to increased resiliency and sustainability, and suggest a course of action toward the alleviation of marginalization of both the faith institutions and the people they serve.
    • The Case Against Prosecuting Refugees

      Criddle, Evan J. (William & Mary Law School Scholarship Repository, 2020-11-01)
      Within the past several years, the U.S. Department of Justice has pledged to prosecute asylum-seekers who enter the United States outside an official port of entry without inspection. This practice has contributed to mass incarceration and family separation at the U.S.–Mexico border, and it has prevented bona fide refugees from accessing relief in immigration court. Yet, federal judges have taken refugee prosecution in stride, assuming that refugees, like other foreign migrants, are subject to the full force of American criminal justice if they skirt domestic border controls. This assumption is gravely mistaken. This Article shows that Congress has not authorized courts to punish refugees for illegal entry or reentry. While largely taken for granted today, the idea that refugees may be prosecuted for such acts is in tension with the full text, context, and purpose of the Immigration and Nationality Act. It is also inconsistent with traditional canons of statutory interpretation, such as the Charming Betsy canon, the canon on constitutional avoidance, and the rule of lenity. Therefore, federal prosecutors should abandon refugee prosecution, and federal courts should hold that the criminal prohibitions on illegal entry and reentry do not apply to refugees.

      This open access book presents religious literacy as the main explanatory factor when dealing with certain ethnic groups that attract stereotypes which gloss over other personal factors such as age, class, gender and cultural differences. It discusses freedom of religion, and the Christian revival movement. It examines religious literacy and religious diversity in multi-faith schools. It looks into the role of Mosques and Islamic divorce. Finally, it discusses the prevention of violent radicalization and extremism in Finland. Using recent data on Finnish secular society, the book promotes a new understanding which is needed with respect to popular and media portrayal of religion, or with respect to public discussion about religion. It addresses actors in civic society, public servants and higher education.
