Have you ever been fascinated with the concept of religion and how every culture perceives their idea of faith very differently? The course of World Religion dives deeper into some of the more popular religions and its sub-groups in order to teach the practices, beliefs, experiences, and etc, of these practices.
The popular religions and beliefs talked about in this course are: Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Islamic, and Jerusalem. Below is a final essay regarding the functionalistic perspective of a issue that is happening with the Rohingya's. Some countries are trying to keep these people out of their countries because most Rohingya's identify as muslim.
The essay that is provided above really gave me more of an insight of how some people mistreat others not only because of their skin color but because of their religion as well. Islamophobia is a prime example of a religion that receives a lot of hate and stereotypes and is viewed as a "terrorist" religion. Islamophobia is the reason why the Rohingya people are undergoing a very harsh time in South Asian countries. The whole semester overall was a very great time, and the amount of information that was provided about the most known religions was very interesting, I never took a deeper look into religion but it's so interesting that across many cultures these forms of religion have came up from the start of Man. The site visit was unfortunately hard to do because of COVID-19, but through the virtual assignment it was so interesting to see how two different religions practice their ceremonies very differently.
