Hypocracy: Examing three characters.In this novel, hypocrisy was referenced lot in this story of "The Crucible". All of the characters that had integrity also acted hypocritically, like John Proctor, Rev. Hale, and Elizabeth Proctor. For example, Reverend Hale claimed to have integrity, but at was very hypocritical. He was in Salem to see if there was any witchcraft in Salem and he had witnessed the girls confessing. However, more toward the end, he was quick to defend John Proctor when he was claiming that the girls were feuds and everyone of them are telling lies about witches. Reverend Hale had integrity because he was a man a good faith and admitted that he was wrong, but at the end he tried to convince John Proctor. I want to talk about three important characters that seemed to fall into the social trap of hypocrisy. One is Judge Danforth, who is blinded by his pride.

When Reverend Hale fall short in his endeavor to forgiven the charged, Danforth states, "I cannot pardon these when twelve are already hanged for the same crime. It is not just," (119). Danforth sees himself as high society that he has the God-given gift to decide what will for a good cause for the community. The Judge believes he is showing compassion in deciding what is "just" but is ignorant to the fact that this "justness" only causes unnecessary deaths. Danforth's pride causes him to be blind toward his obvious hypocritical allegations.Another character that seems to fall into the social trap of hypocrisy is Reverend Samuel Parris.

(30) Parris desires to obtain...
