EXTENDING RELIGIOUS ETHICAL CATEGORIES BEYOND THE FAITHFUL: THE PROBLEM OF SCOPE There are two questions to be asked about nonbelievers: first, which values affirm coexistence with those outside the world of the believer, and which do not? Second, can the values that affirm coexistence be strengthened by leaders and activists in such a way as dramatically to remove animosity toward nonbelievers?

In other words, I can have securely attached relationships with God and others, but I have to work through my ambivalent tendencies and the way they show themselves in my life first. The characteristics of ambivalent attachment include anxiety, insecurity (about God, self, or others), controlling behaviors, and unpredictability. The most powerful out of these characteristics in my own life is anxiety. Anxiety causes me to question whether I am really loved and appreciated. It constantly broadcasts worst-case scenarios into my consciousness, if I let it.
