Apr 19, 2015 by

by Dennis Romboy, Deseret National News: A group of 19 religious organizations has filed a friend-of-the-court brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to rule against same-sex marriage. “Notwithstanding our theological differences, we are united in declaring that the traditional institution of marriage is indispensable to the welfare of the American family and society,” according to the brief filed earlier this month. “We are also united in our belief that a decision requiring...

‘Gay Marriage’ rooted in fraud

Apr 19, 2015 by

By Matt Barber, World Net Daily: The very notion of “gay marriage” is an artificial construct. It’s the aberrant byproduct of the sexual revolution, which, itself, was largely instigated by bug doctor turned “sexologist,” Alfred Kinsey. Though married to a woman who took part in his many filmed “scientific” orgies, Kinsey was a promiscuous homosexual and sadomasochist. He managed to completely upend and twist the world’s perception of human sexuality in the 1950s and ’60s with his world famous...

UN Population Commission Shellshocked By Resistance To Sexual Agenda

Apr 18, 2015 by

By Stefano Gennarini, JD, Turtle Bay & Beyond: The end to the 48th Session of the UN commission on population and development (CPD) was somber. The atmosphere in the room was muted and still. After two weeks of negotiations an agreement could not be reached on how to integrate population policies in the post-2015 development agenda—the purpose and theme of the commission this year. You could hear a pin drop as Nigeria informed the chair of the commission that her chair’s text of the draft...

LGBT Therapy Ban

Apr 18, 2015 by

By Dale O’Leary: Suppose parents were informed that their child has a serious condition, one for which the recommended treatment included: a lifetime regime of powerful drugs which could cause serious, even life threatening, side effects; mutilating surgeries, which leave scars and compromise urinary track function; total loss of the ability to procreate; and partial or complete loss of genital function and feeling. Even with this radical treatment, their child would be at high risk for...

Conservative Manifesto – Historic Opportunity missed

Apr 18, 2015 by

From Grassroots Conservatives: The Conservative Manifesto says ‘Our historic introduction of gay marriage has helped drive forward equality and strengthened the institution of marriage’, (page 46 of the manifesto). This is a piece of doublespeak unrivalled even in George Orwell’s1984.   Marring an otherwise impressive record over the last parliament, this was an unnecessary, fundamentally misconceived and badly drafted piece of legislation.  It has discredited the legitimate...

BBC ‘Kill the Christians’ – at last, thank God, but please don’t leave it th...

Apr 18, 2015 by

by Gillan Scott, Archbishop Cranmer: As regular readers of His Grace’s blog will be fully aware, the plight of Christians around the world is a subject that is discussed frequently on these pages. I sometimes wonder if such repetition will turn people away in a ‘read that; been there before’ approach, but as long as such intense suffering continues, given the nature of this site’s religio-political focus, there is an overwhelming duty to speak up and attempt to lay the facts bare. The Bible is...

Leaving home: The Future of the Faith in England

Apr 17, 2015 by

By Gavin Ashenden, Anglican Ink: The thought of leaving Canterbury, spiritually or emotionally, breaks my heart. I grew up there. I spent five years in the school built around its cloisters. I sang from its tower on Ascension days. I sat for hours at the entrance to the cloisters where Thomas a Becket was struck down for refusing the demands of the secular over the sacred. I took the Eucharist there in the bowels of its undercroft before dawn in the mists of winter. I was confirmed there when...

GAFCON plans to touch more Anglican lives

Apr 17, 2015 by

By Madeleine Davies, Church Times: GAFCON is receiving increasing calls for affiliation from Anglicans who feel they are regarded as “pariahs” and want to “know we are not alone”, one of its leading figures said on Friday. The Revd Dr Peter Jensen, a former Archbishop of Sydney, was speaking at the end of a five-day GAFCON conference in London. A communiqué  issued by seven Primates at the conclusion of the meeting was energetic in tone: a conference is planned for 2018...

Punished for believing in traditional marriage

Apr 17, 2015 by

From Coalition for Marriage:   Read: 30 cases that show why we were right to oppose the redefinition of marriage. DOWNLOAD In the UK, France and elsewhere we see the same thing – far from promoting freedom, the introduction of same-sex marriage has led to people losing their jobs, their businesses and their free speech. Even volunteers like Bryan Barkley have been shown the door just for expressing their belief in marriage. Some campaigners talk as though Parliament has passed a law...
