As such, it is important that ourlanguage be equitable and prejudice free. Good writing and speech do not makeunsubstantiated or irrelevant generalizations about personal qualities such as age,disability, economic class, ethnicity, marital status, parentage, political or religious beliefs,race, sex, or sexual orientation. Respectful use of language is particularly important whenreferring to those outside of the religious and lifestyle commitments of those in the Biolacommunity. By working toward precision and clarity of language, we mark ourselves asserious and respectful scholars, and we model the Christ-like quality of invitation.
