  • Peace and Conflict
    • Christian attitudes to bullying
      • Christians are against it because:
        • it is their duty to protect the innocent
        • it is sinful for Christians to use violence without a just cause
        • it is mistreating God's creation
        • Jesus taught that no Christian would bully Jesus and so they should not bully anymore
    • Muslims attitudes to bullying
      • Muslims are against it because:
        • they should be responsible citizens
        • they should treat all Muslims as their brothers and they should protect the weak and innocent
        • all the law schools teach that Muslims should defend human rights and bullying denies the victim's human rights
