Religion

The longing for holiness is not about wanting to be 'holier than thou'. It is about wanting the love of God to permeate all of our life, and for that love to be shown through our lives to other people.

Politics

The use of force may be supported in extreme situations and when the need to do so is beyond reasonable doubt.

Views

Male and female have common humanity, having equal worth in the eyes of God. The erroneous notion that one gender is superior to another should be rejected.
