User: how has roman catholics experniced prejudice or discrimination.

Weegy: Anti-Catholicism is a generic term for discrimination, hostility or prejudice directed against Catholicism, and especially against the Catholic Church, its clergy or its adherents. [ The term also applies to the religious persecution of Catholics or to a "religious orientation opposed to Catholicism."[6] In the Early Modern period, the Catholic Church struggled to maintain its traditional religious and political role in the face of secular powers in Europe. ]

What is the debate over evolution and intelligent design? How does accounting for both sides of the debate affect education?
Weegy: Darwin’s theories about the origins of species sparked a firestorm of debate that continues to rage today. [ Recently, proponents of intelligent design (ID) have sought to challenge the teaching of evolution in public schools across the country, and perhaps most notably in Kansas and Dover, Pennsylvania, by claiming that the theory of evolution does not adequately explain the complexities of life and that their theory—that an “intelligent agent” better explains the origins of human existence—should be taught in public schools. This idea has gained considerable traction throughout the United States; indeed, even President Bush has stated that he believes both intelligent design and evolution should be taught in schools. ............ ] (More)

What is the debate over evolution and intelligent design? How does accounting for both sides of the debate affect education?
Weegy: Intelligent design was developed by a group of American creationists who revised their argument in the creation ? evolution controversy to circumvent court rulings such as the United States Supreme Court Edwards v. [ Aguillard ruling, which barred the teaching of "Creation Science" in public schools as breaching the separation of church and state ] User: Throughout U.S. history, immigrants have changed their names to disguise their ethnic origins for a variety of reasons. Do you think these changes were justified? Why or why not? Weegy: Some migration is for personal reasons, based on a relationship (e.g. to be with family or a partner), such as in family reunification or transnational marriage (especially in the instance of a gender imbalance). [ In a few cases, an individual may wish to immigrate to a new country in a form of transferred patriotism. Evasion of criminal justice (e.g. avoiding arrest) is a personal motivation. This type of emigration and immigration is not normally legal, if a crime is internationally recognized, although criminals may disguise their identities or find other loopholes to evade detection. There have been cases, for example, of those who might be guilty of war crimes disguising themselves as victims of war or conflict and then pursuing asylum in a different country. ] (More)

Alexis, though, holds grudges. She made her bed, emptied the trash, cleaned, cooked, did the dishes, [ fed the dog and the goats and the chickens and cleaned their coop — and whines that she never received an allowance. At Christmastime, she had to wrap her own presents after her mother handed her the boxes and said "don't look inside."
