2. Why does she doubt sincerity of the Christian beliefs of the factory owners?
The Christian beliefs of the factory owners are indeed doubtful given that they do not correlate with the normal Christian teachings. Most of the employees in these factories are hypocrites because they do not practice what they profess. According to doctrines of Christianity, one should consider everyone as important and equal regardless of their sex, ethnicity, religion or age since everyone is equal before God. It is very discouraging to see that women and slaves continue to be discriminated within the factory while the so called “Christians” watch. A Christian is supposed to stand in the gap and fight for the rights of the weak and say no any form of violence. They are required to embrace advocacy as opposed to keeping quite. They are the ambassadors of Christ who stood with the weak and despised people.
