They thought they were free…

Sep 10, 2014 by

By David Skinner: First they came for the Christian B&B s but I don’t use B&Bs and so I didn’t speak up. Then they came for the Christian schools and teachers but I don’t have any children and so I didn’t speak up. Then they came for Christian counsellors and therapists but I struggle with no inner heartaches  and so I didn’t speak up. Then they came for Christian lawyers but I am a  law–abiding and righteous person, so I didn’t speak up. Finally they came for me but I serve no use to...

Sep 10, 2014 by

From gentlemind: Part three addresses the link between Gender and lawlessness. A magician and his female assistant are performing a vanishing act: he wraps her from head to toe in bandage and then says the magic words – “Gender not Sex”.

The audience think they can see the assistant’s eyes blinking, so tightly do the bandages sculpt to her face, but with a...

A deeply amoral defence of same-sex marriage

Sep 10, 2014 by

By Michael Cook, MercatorNet: Last week the US Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously upheld a district-court ruling that had struck down same-sex marriage bans in Indiana and Wisconsin. Judge Richard Posner wrote the decision, a brilliant piece of rhetoric which was studded with sparkling one-liners and dripping with sarcasm. “Hero Federal Appeals Judge Burns Down the Case Against Gay Marriage” was the headline in Gawker, a widely-read website. “A masterpiece of wit and logic,” was the...

By Brian Brown, NOM: Earlier this week, a federal district judge in Louisiana issued a key decision finding that the marriage amendment passed in 2004 by 78% of the voters of that state does not run afoul of the U.S. Constitution’s guarantees of Equal Protection and Due Process. Accordingly, Judge Feldman ruled against the several plaintiffs’ claims that the amendment is unconstitutional. This is a major victory for marriage that should be celebrated.

This is the true face of the Sexual Revolution. I apologize in advance.

Sep 9, 2014 by

By Jonathon Van Maren, LifeSite: It’s sobering and frustrating to consider that each and every time social conservatives raised the cultural alarm throughout the last five decades, pointing out that each new manifestation of the Sexual Revolution would lead to devastating consequences, they were written off with derisive laughter. They were accused of “provoking a moral panic,” or being “stuck in the past” or “too prudish.” The “slippery-slope” arguments of aging moralists were simply dogmatic...

Schools must ‘actively promote’ gay marriage, according to new Government rules

Sep 9, 2014 by

From Coalition for Marriage: Contact your MP today. The Government is proposing new minimum standards for academies, free schools and independent schools which demand that they ‘actively promote’ equality, as defined by the Equality Act 2010.

Tell him or her that the plans to force schools to...

Anglican Mainstream: A response to Changing Attitude’s letter to the College of Bishops

Sep 8, 2014 by

By Andrew Symes: The Christian Church as a whole, a body of which the Church of England is one branch, has held a consistent position with regard to sexual ethics over the past two millennia, with a remarkable degree of unanimity. That is, marriage is defined as an exclusive, permanent union between one man and one woman, and that sexual activity outside this union cannot be considered holy. The Church has always sought to uphold this principle while at the same time applying appropriate...
