Religion

Through Covenant each individual accepts the relationship with God. It is not about acquiring a relationship with God, but living within the loving relationship that God has already offered.

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Social norms that assume different standards for women than for men in marriage are outdated and should be rejected.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

The erroneous notion that one gender must strive against another cannot be accepted.
