Religion

The objective people wish to attain is not merely to be saved from something. God wishes his children to be saved to something.

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Social norms that assume different standards for women than for men in marriage are outdated and should be rejected.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

Language of offensive nature with regard to race, ethnicity or nationality does not indicate the value of each individual and contradicts the teaching of Jesus Christ.
