Final Draft Starting off, the first pair of characters are Jane Doe from the article and John Proctor from The Crucible. The relation of these two is that both characters are being accused and punished for personal opinion. For instance, from the article “Town backs ex-principal in gay student case.” Jane Doe a high school senior is accused of being a lesbian being told “Homosexuality is wrong.” from her principal. When in The Crucible, John Proctor’s accusations come far worse for being accused of lying and represented as a witch. Yet his consequences are lead to an even worse extent, death. In both cases the two characters parallel to each other by the situation each are in. The last comparison consist of the characters Ardena Gillman from the article and Reverend Hale from the play The Crucible. Both characters stand as compassionate people that stand up for the wrongly accused. From the article, Ardena Gillman mother of an eleventh grader Heather Gillman who took part in the protests had called the ACLU in complaint. “I just felt like I had to stand up for the kids. Heather wanted to do this, and I had to back her,” she said. Reverend Hale compares to this of how he backs up and helps John Proctor. Hale has a dramatic change in beliefs by the end of the play by becoming emotionally involved in the situation. He then backs up for what John Proctor believed and died for. Reverend Hale would always try to make things better between Judge Danforth and Proctor for example, “You must pardon them. They will not budge” Hale says to Danforth (Miller 103).
