    Politics

    The use of force may be supported in extreme situations and when the need to do so is beyond reasonable doubt.

    Religion

    The life with Christ has nothing to do with being in a "church" atmosphere for all eternity. God’s salvation involves far more. He is planning to make his children productive, creative, useful, and supremely happy, within an environment of spiritual perfection, health, peace, and love.

    Denomination: Methodist

    Views

    The very idea that one gender is superior to another should be rejected as well as the erroneous notion that members of one gender may receive love, power, and esteem only at the expense of another.
