Sep 23, 2020 by

by Virginia Hale, Breitbart: Secondary schools which fail to teach pupils LGBT lessons will be penalised by inspectors, it has been revealed.

Sep 23, 2020 by

by Paul Strand, CBN News: Has America moved so far from God, it’s passed the point of no return? Religious believers gathering on the National Mall and around the nation September 26th are pleading with God that it not be so. At two huge events – Washington Prayer March 2020 and a solemn assembly called The Return – they’ll be praying America be given more time. Evangelist Franklin Graham and prophetic writer Jonathan Cahn both say God led them separately to call for these huge...

The new religion of critical race theory

Sep 23, 2020 by

by Bill Connor, Christian Post: Over the past few months, most Americans have begun to hear the terms “Critical Theory” or “Critical Race Theory”. Critical Race Theory (CRT) is the better moniker, as the theory is about “race, racism and power”, and so I will use CRT throughout this article. Though the roots of CRT go back to at least the 1970s, the theory has come from beyond the halls of academia to becoming a profound influence on modern society. The problem comes with the general...

Trump should bring forward his Supreme Court Justice nominee without delay

Sep 23, 2020 by

by Martin Sewell, Archbishop Cranmer: The death of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a significant event on a number of levels. It is, of course, a personal sadness for her family and friends; a loss, if not wholly unexpected, for those who admired her great forensic legal skills and the pioneering role she played as the second woman to be appointed to the US Supreme Court; and for some of the more unhinged partisans in American political life, it is apparently cataclysmic....

As trans lessons start, can Liz Truss stop the madness?

Sep 23, 2020 by

by Caroline ffiske, The Conservative Woman: LAST week, the Sun reported that 15 pupils at a Kent school are identifying as genders different from their birth sex. Most of them are girls. The newspaper says some of these girls are seeking gender reassignment. What are some of the things their futures might hold? Double mastectomies? Sterilisation? Cross-sex hormones for life? Brittle bones? A lifetime of pronoun-policing and offence-taking? Hopefully a good many will desist.  We should no...

Hate crime Bill threatens freedom to speak about marriage

Sep 23, 2020 by

from Coalition for Marriage: It’s going to be more difficult to disagree with same-sex marriage in Scotland – and in the rest of the UK. The new hate crime Bill there seems to confuse disagreement with hatred. C4M is particularly concerned as there is no free speech clause on marriage (unlike England, Wales and Northern Ireland). Our sister organisation, Scotland for Marriage, has circulated the following: “The proposals, currently making their way through the Scottish Parliament, have...

The courage to defeat Evil

Sep 22, 2020 by

by Marcus Walker, The Critic: One of the advantages of being a clergyman is that I can talk about evil. When politicians try, they sound absurd; ask the “Axis of Evil”, whose labelling as such probably enhanced its targets’ reputation while diminishing poor old George W’s already limited reputation for wordsmithery. But clergymen? It’s rather our job description. So what happens when evil wins? Obviously I desperately hope what I really mean is “if”. But there’s no guarantee that in any era...

Sep 22, 2020 by

Stephanie Davies-Arai, Founder and Director, said: “Transgender Trend welcomes today’s announcement by Liz Truss that there will be no change to the GRA to allow gender self-ID. “Today’s decision protects the existing rights of women and girls to privacy and safety in single-sex spaces, and maintains current checks and balances in applying for a GRC. This is critical for the safeguarding and protection of women, children and young people. “Today’s announcement maintains the rights of trans...

Introducing TGC Essays: Theology for the Global Church

Sep 22, 2020 by

By Phil Thompson, The Gospel Coalition: For more than a decade, The Gospel Coalition has been publishing a wide range of articles, podcasts, videos, books, and more. This work is driven by an observation in our Foundation Documents: We have become deeply concerned about some movements within traditional evangelicalism that seem to be diminishing the church’s life and leading us away from our historic beliefs and practices. On the one hand, we are troubled by the idolatry of personal...
