The Company strongly respects the freedom of individuals, including, but not limited to, Catholic young adults within New York City and its surrounding areas, to make decisions regarding their own spirituality; this assumes that they are provided with proper and complete information about the different paths available. The Company is also a supporter of the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights, including the First Amendment.

Some of these groups have been called "cults." However, the mention and/or inclusion of a group and/or a leader within this website does not define that group as a "cult" and/or an individual and/or group mentioned as either destructive and/or harmful.
