19. Based on the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, please arrange the following entities, starting with the highest source of authority, and continue the list in descending order of authority, skipping any that do not apply: Academia, Congress, Constitution, God, Industry, Media, Professional Sports, Supreme Court, Voters.

God, Constitution, Voters, Congress, Supreme Court, Media

20. Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?

Yes, threat to the mother's life. In the end, as a male, I don't have much say in the situation regardless of what moral or legal implications there may be. As a male, I will never be in a position to understand the feelings associated with the carrying a child or the thoughts associated with potentially ending that child's life. I just pray mother's everywhere will make the right decision.

21. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in God. I believe we are here for a purpose that, although it may remain a mystery to us, will fulfill a valuable role in shaping our existence. I believe that it is our duty to explore, be creative, and experience life in a meaningful way that enhances our spirituality and our understanding of life. I believe we would be a whole lot better off if were able to stick to two main principles: don't steal (looks, trust, property, life, etc.) and be nice.
