    Politics

    Social norms that assume different standards for women than for men in marriage are outdated and should be rejected. Laws in civil society should define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

    Religion

    It is the person’s choice to be saved and one can fall from grace by not following God therefore losing salvation.
