Revising key points
Roles of Men and Women
• Growth of equal rights for women:
– Women can:
– keep property separate from husband
– Stand as MP’s
– Vote
– Equal opportunities
– Equal pay
Christian attitudes
• Traditional roles:
• Women – bring up children,
run Christian home
• Men – provide for family and
lead in religion
BECAUSE
Bible – women not allowed to
speak or teach in Church
Creation story in Genesis – Adam
created first so more important
Jesus disciples were men
• Modern roles:
• Men and women equal roles.
• Women can be ministers and
priests.
BECAUSE
Creation story in Genesis – men
and women created equally
and at the same time
Bible – in Christ there is neither
male or female
Jesus treated women as his
equals
Muslim attitudes
• Traditional roles:
• Different roles
• Women – bring up children as
good Muslims, run Muslim
home
• Men – provide for family, lead
in religion, ensure children
brought up good Muslims
BECAUSE
Qur’an teaches
God gave men stronger
physique to provide
Women created to bear
children
• Modern roles:
• Men and women equal roles in
religion and education.
• Women should have career –
but role as mother takes
priority.
• Very few accept women imams
BECAUSE
Qur’an teaches men and women
equal in religion and education
Muhammad encouraged both
men and women to worship at
the mosque
Multi ETHNIC society
• Many different RACES/CULTURES living
together in one society
Multi ethnic society

• Prejudice and
discrimination
• Alienation
• Not using talents
• violence
• Extremism
• BENEFITS
• Less violence
• Increased
understanding and
tolerance
• New ideas and
change
• Variety of food, music,
fashion, etc
Christians should promote racial
harmony and should not be racist
because…
• Teaching of Jesus - Parable of the Good
Samaritan
• Example of Jesus – he treated a
Samaritan woman as his equal + and
black African help carry his cross
• Bible teaches all nations are equal
• All Christian churches have issued
statements condemning racism
Muslims should promote racial
harmony and should not be racist
because…
• Qur’an teaches all races are equal in the
eyes of God
• Muhammad said every Muslim is a brother
to every other Muslim so should be no
racism among Muslims
• Muhammad led by example – had a black
African as first prayer caller
Multi FAITH society
• Many different RELIGIONS living together
in one society
Multi faith society
• BENEFITS
• Understanding and
tolerance
• Less violence
• Practice own religion
more seriously
• Consider own beliefs
• Bring religious ideas
out for people to think
about
• PROBLEMS for
RELIGION
• Conversion
• Bringing up children
• Mixed marriages
Christian attitudes to other religions
• Many believe
• Respect other religions
BUT have right to convert
others. Christianity is only
true religion.
BECAUSE
Jesus - “No one comes to
the Father except through
me”
Jesus said love your
neighbour – that means
you want them to get to
heaven so need to
convert them.
• Some believe
• All religions equal and
just different ways of
finding God. Respect
other religions – don’t
need to convert them.
BECAUSE
Jesus – “in my Father’s
house are many rooms”
Don’t take Bible literally
Other religions lead good
and holy lives
Muslim attitudes to other religions
• Many believe
• Respect other religions BUT
have right to convert others.
Islam is only true religion and
others are wrong.
BECAUSE
Qur’an teaches that:
Muhammad given God’s final
and perfect revelation
Only Muslims will go to heaven
Muslims should try to convert
non-Muslims
• Some believe
• All religions equal and contain
some truth. Just different ways
of finding God.
BECAUSE
Qur’an teaches God is all merciful
– would not let good followers
of other religions go to Hell.
