Handshakes, Islam, and Religious Tolerance in the West

Jun 20, 2016 by

by Jennifer S Bryson, Public Discourse: True religious freedom demands that we allow space in our society for difference, even when we don’t understand the reasons for a particular religious practice. Having to live without fully understanding others comes with the territory of genuine diversity. Two Muslim boys in Switzerland have declined, on religious grounds, to shake hands with their female teachers. The school district says Swiss custom should override religion and is now threatening to...

Celebrities Who Have Left a Gay Lifestyle

Jun 20, 2016 by

By Joseph Nicolosi: Homosexuality is not fixed and unchangeable, as these public figures reveal.

Don’t call girls girls, advise gender neutral headmistresses

Jun 20, 2016 by

A New Devastating Critique of the Global Sexual Revolution

Jun 19, 2016 by

by Austin Ruse, Crisis Magazine: It is quite remarkable that we are fighting the same battle from before the French Revolution, the fight between sexual license and sexual morality. The fight has been non-stop. Sometimes we are winning, other times, like now, we are losing. On the one side are the radicals who genuinely believe traditional morality as espoused by the Catholic Church and expressed in a monogamous man-woman marriage open to life is a prison where freedom goes to die. It is more...

It takes a father to raise a civilised man by Laura Perrins, The Conservative Woman Fathering is about inspiring, by Edmund Adamus, Roman Catholic Diocese of Westminster: So if we want the boys of today (so many of whom are at massively high risk of being routinely exposed to grossly indecent imagery impoverishing their affective emotional maturity) to truly become the well-rounded, courageous, self-sacrificing men of tomorrow, we have to model for them today a wholesome, spirit-filled witness...
