Operationalization
Acceptance of the rainbow as political symbol of unity among the diversive people of South-Africa

a. "Supporters" (I believe that God has offered to all South-Africans, black and white, a new covenant por a peaceful life in a common nation)
b. "Opponents" (For me, the covenant is a religious matter only and should not be used in politics)
c. "Non-believers" (For me, it has no meaning at all)
