Jul 7, 2015 by

by Eric Metaxas, Breakpoint: Was marriage “equality” the real goal of the gay marriage movement? Or was it something else? Both before and after the Supreme Court’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, some Christians argued that allowing same-sex couples to marry is not inconsistent with traditional Christian teaching on marriage. At the heart of these arguments is the assertion that same-sex relationships are, to borrow a phrase from gay writer Andrew Sullivan, “virtually normal.” That is,...

Step 2: Left’s next target after ‘gay marriage’

Jul 7, 2015 by

by Paul Bremmer, World Net Daily: Supporters of same-sex marriage may think they’re simply making the world a fairer and more equal place, but they are unwittingly helping the radical left destroy marriage and the family, according to professor and author Paul Kengor. “Those advocates of same-sex marriage have no idea that advocacy fuels and fits the much more radical left’s agenda, radical left being communist, socialist, radical secular progressive left,” Kengor told WND. “For the typical...

Jul 7, 2015 by

By Katie Hope, BBC: Saying prayers with colleagues would feel a bit uncomfortable, too intimate an activity in the workplace for many people.

Tories take another swipe at church, break promise over relaxing Sunday trading laws

Jul 7, 2015 by

from Breitbart: The Conservative Party is set to take another swipe at the Church of England tomorrow as George Osborne announces in his Budget speech that he will look at relaxing Sunday trading laws – the legislation that keeps Britain’s shops from opening longer on Sundays.

We are All Anabaptists Now

Jul 6, 2015 by

From Bible and Mission blog: Postmodernity, wrote Jean Francois Lyotard, entails an incredulity towards metanarratives.[1]  We might put this the other way around.  Postmodernity find mininarratives credible.  That is, that a story gives meaning to one’s own life is sufficient to make it right or true, without regard to some larger understanding.  Simply put, we create our own meaning and identity. Constructed Identity, Not Universal, Natural Law This way of thinking has now reached the level...

Gay Whale Swallows JONAH

Jul 6, 2015 by

By Janet Tassel, The American Thinker: This year, June, not April, was the cruelest month.  Traditionalists and right-thinkers were overwhelmed by the unfathomable Supreme Court rulings, the vulgar rainbow-hued White House, and the culture — or what remains of it. A lesser-known casualty of the June wars was a tiny New Jersey non-profit called JONAH (Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing), dedicated to educating the Jewish community and beyond about the social, cultural, and...
