Religion

The Covenant is a big challenge to everybody. If God is committed to human race, anyone has to be prepared to accept that as reality and make a commitment in return.

Politics

The state should not use its authority to promote particular religious beliefs, nor should it require prayer or worship in the public schools. However, the state should leave students free to practice their own religious convictions.

Views

The family is encompassing a wider range of options than that of the two-generational unit of parents and children.
