In some cases, as Erikson explains, labeling and isolating deviants together creates an even worse problem than the initial crime. Prison systems are notorious for a hierarchical system of criminals, with those on top teaching and grooming the amateurs for worse crimes. With this in mind, Erikson looks at a much lesser yet historically relevant form of deviance; the Puritans’ detachment from the Church.

Respected Puritan minister, Jonathan Edwards in his Sermon, “Sinners In The Hands of An Angry God (1781), Elaborates on the negatives of being a repentant sinner. Edward’s goal is to inform people that sinning can be dangerous. He adopts a serious tone in order to establish a constant fear within Sinners and Non Sinners reading. Using the heavy caution within his readers let him establish a successful Sermon with the help of examples.
First it is necessary to examine how nature is identified with sin against the Puritan way of life. The first example of this is found in the first chapter regarding the rosebush at the prison door. This rosebush is located "on one side
New Hampshire was graciously founded on June 21,1788, for the record this was a little over 228 years ago. As for religion 35.15 percent are simply religious meaning they don’t attend regular sunday services, but they do believe that there is a God greater than us. Catholic Christians stand at 24 percent, meaning there probably aren’t that much catholic churches. Here’s proof, there are 1.327 million people living in the state of New Hampshire today. So if I divide 1.327 million by 100, that equals to thirteen thousand two hundred seventy. Finally thirteen thousand two hundred seventy times twenty four equals 318,480 people. Yes that may be a lot but compared to 1.327 million people, that is nowhere near a lot of people.

The GatesburgGoGreen Initiative is a proposal to reduce the countries landfill amount by 90% over the next 5 years. An example of who uses this initiative are cities like San Francisco and Cleveland with much larger populations than Gatesburg. Some people believe this initiative is no more than an unnecessary and radical law. According to multiple sources, Americans already recycle at a high rate, which is about 95% of lead-acid batteries and 75% of steel cans and newspapers. In some people's opinions, this law only puts a burden on citizens who are already recycling at a normal rate by adding complicated rules such as different colored bins for certain items. If the law
Haltigar not only fits the addressee of the warning, as an Archbishop, he is doing what the warning exactly asks: laboring to uproot the art of sorcery from his parishes. Within The “Roman” Pentitential, Haltigar provides a guideline for the priests and clergy on how to identify such practices and beliefs, and the fit penance or punishment for them. Through the lens of Augustine and Haltigar’s work, we can see that the Canon Episcopi seems to be drawing off of much earlier traditions and themes within Christian theology and literature.
Once meeting his destination, Young Goodman Brown is accused by a man “in grave and decent attire” (Hawthorne 1289) of being late. “Faith kept me back awhile” (1290) is Goodman Brown’s excuse.
