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    Social norms that assume different standards for women than for men in marriage are outdated and should be rejected.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

    As someone joins the group of people seeking to follow the way of Jesus, it means to respond to God's challenge and begin to share his relationship with God as Father.

    Denomination: Methodist
