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Social norms that assume different standards for women than for men in marriage are outdated and should be rejected.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

Views

People are called to love God not only with their hearts, but also with their minds. All things should be considered through the light of reason. In order to do that, it is necessary to become aware of different points of view and be able to develop critical thinking in relation to any political or social problem.
