Statement by His Grace Bishop Angaelos, General Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom, on increased attacks against Egypt’s Christian community

Jul 26, 2016 by

Egypt is undoubtedly going through a formative stage of its contemporary history. Having emerged from uprisings and changes in Government, dealing with resulting pressures on its economy and infrastructure, and with the loss of foreign investment and tourism, it has become more vulnerable to a disturbing wave of radicalism. One of the manifestations of this radicalisation is that despite a short period of apparent reprieve, it is regrettable that the time has come yet again to speak of...

Egypt’s Coptic Christians are being slandered, humiliated and murdered

Jul 26, 2016 by

by Archbishop Cranmer: “They burnt the house and went in and dragged me out, threw me in front of the house and ripped my clothes,” recounted 70-year-old Souad Thabet. “I was just as my mother gave birth to me and was screaming and crying.” She was paraded naked through the streets by a mob in Menia, Egypt, where a number of Christian homes were looted and destroyed. The allegation was that Souad Thabet’s son had been romantically involved with a Muslim woman, and so the Muslim mob had to mete...

Being a priest has become a dangerous job

Jul 26, 2016 by

by Ed West, Spectator: Fr Jacques Hamel, murdered today by Islamists in Normandy, was 84, and in his life would have seen his country transformed, from the Occupation to the Thirty Golden Years and through to this modern unhappy age. I can’t imagine that a young priest in the age of the Piuses would have expected to end his life in such a manner, near to where Joan of Arc was martyred, but then Europeans are getting used to things that a few decades ago would have been absurd. After the war,...

1 Are we all ‘omnigender’ now?

Jul 26, 2016 by

From affinity.org: Introduction: the deconstruction of sexual distinctions. An elite women’s college in America, Wellesley College, recently clarified its admissions policy. They will admit (biological) men who claim to be women.  They will not admit (biological) women who claim to be men. The assumption is that objective physical reality (biological sex) is irrelevant. ‘Gender’ is all in the mind. We can define ourselves. The campaign to recognise the ‘right’ to ‘change gend er’ is not just...

Acclamation, assent and disruption

Jul 26, 2016 by

by David Pocklington, Law & Religion UK: This post gives further consideration to the Press Release issued by WATCH (Women and the Church) on 20 July, which commented on the presence of objectors at the consecration of female bishops, and hoped that at the next consecration of female bishops, “things will be arranged differently”.

Fair Facts Win in Fairfax

Jul 26, 2016 by

from FRC Action: President Obama has gotten away with a lot of things in the past two terms, but his bathroom order may not be one of them. Parents, state leaders, and school boards are ramping up their opposition in some of the least likely places. Fairfax County, home to one of the biggest school districts in the nation, was out in front of even President Obama — making special privileges for confused students part of their policy way back in 2015. Now, thanks to a flood of complaints,...

3 Practical Steps to Resist the Tyranny of Tolerance

Jul 26, 2016 by

by Jonathan Morrow, courtesy of Tim Challies: Is it OK to disagree with other peoples’ deeply held beliefs anymore? You’ve heard the buzzwords: Coexist. Hate speech. Discrimination. Micro-aggressions. Trigger warnings. Speech codes. It’s becoming obvious to anyone paying attention to the media these days that certain moral and religious viewpoints are simply no longer allowed in our classrooms or broader culture. They are either dismissed without argument as “irrational” or the people who hold...

Has Public Opinion Shifted Under the Gavel?: Obergefell After One Year

Jul 26, 2016 by

By Cathy Ruse, Family Research Council: ast June five Justices of the Supreme Court ruled that no state of the Union could define marriage as a man-woman institution. This nullified the law of most states, and the individual votes of 50 million Americans, not to mention thousands of years of human history. Has public opinion shifted under the weight of the gavel? If so, it is not in the direction of acquiescence. Conventional wisdom says the law is a great teacher, and indeed, when the Court...

How Do You Like Me Now?

Jul 26, 2016 by

by Dr David Kyle Foster, Virtueonline: When a Child, Parent, Spouse or Sibling Says They’re Gay For many decades now, ministries like ours have been helping those who struggle with homosexuality. The fruit of such ministry for us has been the publishing of several books, ten years of weekly television programming (www.PurePassion.us) and the release of an award-winning documentary, www.SuchWereSomeOfYou.org. But through all the years, one population has stood out as having very little...
