After watching this video, I want you to write a brief reflection – NO MORE THAN 2 PARAGRAPHS – addressing ONE (and ONLY ONE) of the following two issues:
- Governor Riley made this comment: “In my New Testament it says there are three things we should do: Love God, love each other, and take care of the least among us.” Does U.S. family policy (not the Alabama tax measure, but U.S. policy in general) do that – take care of the least among us? Why or why not?
- John Giles, of the Christian Coalition of Alabama made this comment: “I don’t know anybody that’s gone lacking. I don’t know of any unemployed person who has not gotten a check, I don’t know of anybody that didn’t get government services that were of a low-income family. Nobody has ever suffered in this state.” How is it that this is his perspective given 20% of children in Alabama live in poverty?
When addressing one of these two issues, you need to include some course material (Guided PowerPoint mini-lecture, book, or class discussion) in some way – anything from the last 10 weeks is fine. I just want to see that you are making connections and seeing how the issue of family policy is intertwined with and affected by all of the DPD issues we’ve covered this term. Please be specific about the course material – like I’ve asked you to do in the online Discussion assignments.
