 Teach class differently but underlying message
   is the same–God’s love.

 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you
  are worth more than many sparrows. Luke 12:7
 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are
  wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14
 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with
  all your mind and with all your strength.The second is this:‘Love your
  neighbor as yourself.There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:
  30-31
 Respect for the human person entails respect for the rights that flow from his
  dignity as a creature. Catechism of the Catholic Church Article Three #1930
