  1. Whoever wrote this question has a serious grammar problem. The question asks about "an individual" and then refers to this singular antecedent with the plural pronouns "they" and "their."

    If the person's behaviors don't match his or her stated beliefs, then some introspection is necessary. The Roman Catholic Church offers confession to help people work through such conflicts.
