    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    Social norms that assume different standards for women than for men in marriage are outdated and should be rejected.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

    Regular ceremonies enable people to open themselves to God more fully. They help people to hear God's offer and challenge ever more deeply, and to allow God to prompt and enable them to respond.

    Denomination: Methodist
