World Religions: Confucianism

By: Chelsey Rocha and Annabella Nagle

Most Important Belief

Confucians believe that respecting one another and strong government is very important.

Why They Believe That

They believe that because Confucius (who they worship) said to treat others how you wish to be treated. Confucius also said to respect others. "Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself." (Golden rule) -Confucius

Why Confucians Want To Follow Their Belief's Teachings (In my opinion)

In my opinion, I think that Confucians followed Confucius partly due to his profile.

How Extremists Justify Their Actions Against Nonbelievers

They are no examples of extremists in this religion because their god did not believe in violence. "Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves." - Confucius. "Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself." - Confucius. "When anger rises think of the consequences." -Confucius.

Confucianism Current Event

Confucianists believe that it shows self-disipline and kindness.

"It emphasises virtues like kindness and self-discipline. It is very good for my son and very good for Chinese society as well."-BBC News

A mother of a 3-year-old pupil says. These schools teach more than the basic core skills, the schools do chants to respect there teachers and pupils.

For example: "In a group of three people, one of them will become my teacher," Many of the chants they do have to say or mean to be respectful and kind to others.

The teacher would also teach his students to bow down and praise while before class starts.
