Obama’s Foreign Policy Legacy: Chaos and LGBT

May 5, 2016 by

By Wendy Wright, C-Fam: As President Obama nears the end of his term his foreign policy remains indecipherable even to experts. His reticence in foreign affairs – even in cases of genocide – is legendary, except for one matter. A coordinated game plan on one key issue emerges through officials’ speeches, obscure overseas funding, even “buttonholing” diplomats in UN bathrooms to reveal an Obama foreign policy priority. “Internationally, this Administration has bent over backwards to promote...

The Power of One, or Two

May 5, 2016 by

by Bill Muehlenberg, Culture Watch: As Australia and the West grow increasingly darker and more hostile to Christians, it becomes more difficult for believers to simply get through the basics of life, be it buying goods and services, education, or other areas. For example, many businesses and corporations are becoming decidedly unfriendly to faith and family. Whether it is about pushing all things homosexual and transgender, or pushing creeping sharia and halal products, fewer and fewer...

The Right to Be Differently Excellent: Why Christian Colleges Should Be Allowed to Be Christian

May 5, 2016 by

by Adam J MacLeod, Public Discourse: Vanderbilt is legally free to constitute itself as a non-religious university. The question is whether Gordon College will be left free to constitute itself as a Christian college. Will we have equal liberty, or only liberty for those who despise Christianity? Gordon College is still under attack for being an intentionally Christian college. For nearly two years, cultural elites in Massachusetts, led by The Boston Globe, have been waging a sustained...

Polyamory isn’t good for children: my story

May 5, 2016 by

By James Lopez, LifeSite: Recently, I had a discussion about marriage with someone who calls herself a “Darwinian gay feminist.” I asked her, “Is there any principled reason that marriage should be limited to only two people? There is now such a thing as a ‘throuple’—a three-way relationship. Should they have a right to marry?” She replied, “A union between three consenting adults? I see nothing wrong with it. The same goes for incest. It’s none of my business.” I take it that she was serious...

May 5, 2016 by

By Alan M Dershowitz, Gatestone Institute: This year commemorates the 80th anniversary of the notorious Nuremberg Laws, the Nazi racist enactments that formed the legal basis for the Holocaust.

There is little dispute about the evil of the Nuremberg Laws. As Justice...

Gay ‘marriage’: It’s not gay, and it’s not marriage

May 5, 2016 by

by Dale Ahlquis, LifeSite: One of the pressing issues of Chesterton’s time was “birth control.” He not only objected to the idea, he objected to the very term because it meant the opposite of what it said. It meant no birth and no control. I can only imagine he would have the same objections about “gay marriage.” The idea is wrong, but so is the name. It is not gay and it is not marriage. Chesterton was so consistently right in his pronouncements and prophecies because he understood that...
