650 Word Paper

Help me study for my Political Science class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

This is a three-part assignment and centers on concepts of ideology:

PART ONE: Watch either Choice One or Choice Two – they are different films on the same subject, which is the Westboro Baptist Church. It’s OK to watch both choices if you like.

Choice One:

Part A – first half

Brainwashed by the Westboro Baptist Church (Part 1/2) (Links to an external site.)Brainwashed by the Westboro Baptist Church (Part 1/2)

Part B – second half

PART TWO:

Write a reflection (first summarize the film and then add your thoughts, commentary, reaction) on the “The Most Hated Family in America?” What did you think about the Westboro Baptist Church, its core beliefs and practices?

FYI:

Megan Phelps has since left the church and now gives Ted Talks. If you are interested here’s a link: https://www.ted.com/talks/megan_phelps_roper_i_grew_up_in_the_westboro_baptist_church_here_s_why_i_left?language=en (Links to an external site.)

PART THREE:

Compare/contrast. The Westboro Baptist Church is considered by many to be a “fringe” religious organization. The same could be said for all religions until they are ‘established’ with a mass following. Discuss the beliefs of the Westboro Baptist Church as they compare to at least two of the religions listed below.

At a minimum, write about three similarities and three differences among the three faiths. That is, where do they overlap with their beliefs and where are they completely different?

Consider things like: Who or what do they worship? Do they share any religious doctrine/literature or not? Are regular services held, and if so, how are they conducted? How do they perceive the afterlife? What kinds of things are expected of the congregation? And so forth.

Compare/contrast the Westboro Baptist Church with at least two of the faiths listed below:

The Catholic Church

The Church of Scientology

The Mormon Church

The Christian Science Church

The Methodist Church

Evangelical Protestantism

Evangelical Christianity

Judaism

Islam

Buddhism

Hinduism

Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster
