8 Statements of Belief

8 Statements of Belief

Our 8 Statements of Belief were inspired in response to the “7 Word Ban” flagged in January of 2018.
Each statement is based on one word that was discouraged by the Trump administration in budgetary requests within the Centers for Disease Control.
1

Vulnerable

We believe as intrinsically connected organisms, it is our responsibility to care and tend to the most vulnerable among us—such that all of humanity may experience material peace and comfort.
2

Entitlements

We believe entitlements are our collective moral mandate to a loving and just global society, ensuring access to food, shelter, education, and healthcare.
3

Diversity

We believe diversity of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, and religion demonstrates the most glorious aspects of the Universe—the multiplicity of our unity is celebrated through our differences.
4

Transgender

We believe the transgender expression is holy, ancient, mystical, and worthy of celebration—a divine appointment that stirs uniquely in the soul.
5

Fetus

We believe a person has dominion over their uterus, is divinely guided to determine the future of their fetus, and has agency over their entire body.
6

Evidence-based

We believe evidence-based practices demonstrate the evolution of human consciousness and greatly advance our understanding of this vast universe.
7

Science-based

We believe science-based research is essential in addressing climate change and caring for our planet and its resources.
8

Immigration

We believe immigration is a holy quest motivated by an intention for freedom, abundance and peace, and must be honored with a spirit of generosity, consideration, curiosity, and welcome – realizing our Oneness with all beings on the planet.
