No, We Can’t ‘Agree to Disagree’ on Marriage

Nov 24, 2016 by

by John Stonestreet, Breakpoint: For years, a steady drumbeat of Christian pastors, musicians, and authors have announced they’ve “evolved” on the issue of homosexuality. Authors like Matthew Vines and more recently, Jen Hatmaker, musician Nicole Nordeman and Yale philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff argue that the Bible doesn’t actually condemn same-sex “marriage.” Christians, they say, should bless such unions as “holy.” Many of them have said that even if we don’t agree, we shouldn’t make it a...

Is The Church Of England Finally About To Make A Decision On Gay Marriage?

Nov 22, 2016 by

by Harry Farley, Christian Today: Is the Church of England finally about to make a decision about same-sex marriage? It seems unlikely. But one of the Church’s most senior bodies – the House of Bishops – has a climax meeting this week in London. It comes amid a long and drawn out process and will certainly not be the last key moment. Arguments have raged for decades over the Church’s teaching and practice on gay relationships. Things reached a head when several conservative...

Donald Trump represents the new normal – on both sides of the Atlantic

Nov 22, 2016 by

by Rod Liddle, Spectator: […]  The interesting thing, for me, is the degree to which social policy will change — because change it certainly will.

With the manifest insanity of safe spaces in universities where absurd liberal...

by Pat Langrell, Conjugality: The debate is about two vastly different ideas of marriage, not about whether we like gays.

A New Day Dawns

Nov 21, 2016 by

by Alan Craig, Alan’s Angle: It was an off-the-Richter-scale earthquake, followed by an even bigger – because American – aftershock. Brexit, followed by Brexit plus plus plus. History before our eyes. […] For decades politically-correct liberals – of all parties – have succeeded in every skirmish and won every battle in the culture wars. They’ve established their hegemony and new morality right across the institutions. They’ve done this so effectively that, when it came to the...

Donald Trump, Same-Sex ‘Marriage’ and the Church

Nov 16, 2016 by

by Michael Brown, Charisma: If President Trump does not nominate pro-life justices to the Supreme Court, I will be surprised and disappointed, although not shocked, since I do not put my absolute trust in people, especially political leaders. If President Trump does not oppose same-sex “marriage,” I will be disappointed but not surprised. That’s why his recent comments on 60 Minutes were disappointing but not surprising. After all, he had his good friend Peter Thiel speak at...
