The position of the University of Pittsburgh Association of Chaplaincies is that religious sensitivity is a personal matter and should be treated with due regard, keeping sacred the principle of free will. Devotion in any system of belief should be offered and received openly and in good faith; never by coercion, manipulation or deception. Some would capitalize on the tender yearnings of spiritual awareness to promulgate factional, personal or financial agendas. These actions thwart the value of spiritual exercise which should have as its objective the edification of the soul and in contribution to family and social order. UPAC members forswear attempts to advance organizational progress by such methods. UPAC welcomes all to evaluate any religious activity by similar standards.
