Religion

In modern culture the ability to make decisions and choose our own path in life has extremely high value. But through the faith we voluntarily surrender to God in love and joy.

Politics

The separation of church and state has guaranteed the diversity of religious expressions and the freedom to worship God according to each person’s conscience. However, separation of church and state permit interaction.
