The Protohomosexual

May 14, 2015 by

By Tyler Blanski, Crisis Magazine: Why are so many straight people pro gay? Because the normalization of homosexuality is the premiere achievement of heterosexual ideology. “Gay” and “straight” are not taxonomies but ideologies. They are not orientations but disorientations: whether bi-, homo-, or hetero-, hyphenated sexuality makes us lose our sense of direction toward the truly sexual, and the victims of such ideology are children. The words “homosexual” and “heterosexual” are...

Why conservative churches are still growing

May 14, 2015 by

By Michael Brown, World Net Daily: With all the talk we hear about the decline of Christianity, the churches that are consistently losing members are the liberal churches, while Bible-based churches continue to grow, especially worldwide. Writing in 2001, Dr. Al Mohler noted, “By the late 1960s, liberal Protestants began asking a rather difficult question. Why were the conservative churches growing? In retrospect, one aspect of the liberal Protestant crisis was reflected in that very question....

May 13, 2015 by

From Christian Concern: Supporters of Core Issues Trust (CIT) engaged Uxbridge voters, on election day, around the double-speak of Mayor Boris Johnson in soliciting the gay-vote when banning its advert in 2012, on the eve of mayoral elections.

A Baby Is Not a Chattel

May 13, 2015 by

By Frank Furedi, Huffington Post: I was genuinely shocked and appalled to discover that a Judge had ruled that a one year old infant should be taken away from her mother and handed over to a gay couple with whom she had a surrogacy arrangement. The right of a court to force a mother to part with her child because of an informal agreement and cash transaction raises some disturbing questions about the nature of maternal right, the right of women to determine the future of her offspring and the...

800 years on, why Magna Carta still matters

May 13, 2015 by

by Brendan O’Neill, Spiked: The document that built a ‘brazen wall’ to guard the individual from the state. Not surprisingly, given it was written 800 years ago, there’s much in Magna Carta that sounds alien to our 21st-century ears. From its heartfelt plea for ‘standard measures’ of wine and ale ‘throughout the kingdom’ to its rumination on what should happen to a man’s fortunes should he die while in debt to Jews, the medievalism of the document sings through its 63 clauses. And of...

May 13, 2015 by

By Louise Kirk, The Conservative Woman: You may have noticed, round you, or through media reports, that young people are depressed. But if that depresses you, it is nothing compared with what’s coming to us, according to Dr Natasha Bijlani, consultant psychiatrist at the Priory Hospital, Roehampton. She predicts an epidemic of depression breaking upon our nation as today’s young grow up. The cause? Her particular target is the comparatively new habit of sexting and cyber bullying. You can see...

Christians are the new lepers

May 13, 2015 by

By Archbishop Cranmer: Speaking at Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University in Virginia last week, the next Republican nominee (if they have any sense) for President of the United States spoke of the increasing intolerance being expressed toward Christians by the erstwhile liberal democratic states, simply for believers’ adherence to centuries-old moral orthodoxy and theological wisdom in an age of relativism and aggressive assertions of equality and human rights. Yes, he was courting the...
