US Military Rifles through Transgender Policy

Mar 26, 2015 by

By Tony Perkins, FRC: When it comes to his latest military maneuver, the President isn’t asking — but leaders are telling their concerns. Military officials may finally be saying, “enough!” to the President’s radical social policies. Last month, it looked like the commander-in-chief might finally have a partner in his social experiment, new Defense Secretary Ash Carter. Barely four weeks into the job, the Pentagon’s latest boss said he was on board with the...

Why does the world say that an unchosen sexual disposition isn’t changeable, but an unchosen gender ...

Mar 12, 2015 by

By Matt Moore, Time Magazine: […]  This question actually caught me by surprise. Even as someone who thinks on the topic of sexuality more often than most, the inconsistency between these two lines of thought has never crossed my mind.

The Absurdity of Transgenderism: A Stern but Necessary Critique

Feb 6, 2015 by

by  Carlos D Flores, Public Discourse: We should make public policy and encourage social norms that reflect the truth about the human person and sexuality, not obfuscate the truth about such matters and sow the seeds of sexual confusion in future generations for years to come.
