Feb 18, 2020 by

by Linda Carroll, Reuters: People who have had 10 or more sexual partners during their lifetime may have increased odds of being diagnosed with cancer, a new study suggests. Women, in particular, had nearly twice the risk when they had 10 or more past partners compared to when they had one or none, researchers report in BMJ Sexual & Reproductive Health. While the study team expected to find an association between number of sexual partners and cancer, they were surprised to find a gender...

Rabbis defy education authorities, won’t teach LGBT lifestyles in UK Jewish schools

Feb 18, 2020 by

by Paul Smeaton, LifeSite: The rabbis told Jewish school leaders to tell inspectors ‘clearly and respectfully that they do not cover these subjects.’ Jewish leaders in the U.K. have stated that they will oppose educational authorities and not allow their schools to teach about homosexual and other “lifestyles” that are “prohibited by the Torah.” Chinuch U.K., an organization that represents Britain’s main strictly Orthodox Jewish communities, has “issued a defiant challenge to the government...

Common Good Conservatism In Action

Feb 17, 2020 by

by Terry Schilling, First Things: Over the past year, conservatism has changed. At least, the way conservative intellectuals and some politicians talk has changed. Many now speak of orienting our society toward the common good, and about using government power to pursue that good. But has anything really changed within the Republican party? Politics and policy often run a course independent of philosophical debate. Are policymakers ready to go on offense and commit to a different strategy for...

Push To Legalize Polygamy Uses Same Arguments As Push For Same-Sex Marriage

Feb 17, 2020 by

by Katy Faust and Stacy Manning, The Federalist: The ‘love is love’ strategy was so successful for the gay marriage lobby, why should polygamists reinvent the wheel? “I just came out openly to friends.” “Love is love” and we deserve “equal protection under the law.” We are “not harming anybody.” “The world would be a better place if everybody was more open.” “I am proud of who I am” but I am “rejected by society.” “It’s unhealthy to force people into a choice that might not fit them,”...

Catholic MP Backs Free Speech as Anglican Bishops Gag Franklin Graham

Feb 17, 2020 by

by Jules Gomes, Church Militant: A leading traditionalist Catholic politician has robustly defended Franklin Graham’s right to freedom of speech and freedom of religion after all seven venues booked by the preacher banned the evangelist from speaking during his forthcoming tour of the United Kingdom.

Without God, it’s harder to defend against eugenics

Feb 17, 2020 by

by Mary Harrington, UnHerd: The first of Dominic Cummings’ ‘weirdos’ came in for his inaugural round of public hazing over the weekend, as journalists dug through the internet footprint of young ‘superforecaster’ Andrew Sabisky in search of nonstandard utterances with which to evidence their fears about Britain’s slide into fascism. […]  For a Christian, we are all God’s children and of equal worth. All but the most contorted Christian perspectives would affirm that the notion of making...

German Left’s firebomb war on Christianity

Feb 17, 2020 by

by Dr Campbell Campbell-Jack, TCW: THE media give the impression that the big danger of political violence in Germany comes from the Right with marches and demonstrations by Pegida and the rise of the AfD. Marches and voting success, however, are less dangerous to democracy than firebomb attacks by the Left on Christian individuals and organisations. German pro-life journalist Gunnar Schupelius’s car was destroyed in an arson attack on December 31 for which the ‘Feminist Autonomous Cell’...

The Right cannot afford to duck the debate about trans, sex and gender

Feb 17, 2020 by

by Rebecca Lowe, Conservative Home: An absence of discussion about sex — in the sense of biology, rather than shagging — is one of the many ways in which Conservative discourse remains starkly different from that of our friends on the left. It’s been hard to miss, for instance, the way in which such matters have become central to the Labour leadership contest. Yes, this has largely consisted of the candidates attempting to ‘outwoke’ each other — rather than engaging in valuable substantive...

Transition as Treatment: The Best Studies Show the Worst Outcomes

Feb 17, 2020 by

by Paul Dirks, Public Discourse: A pattern begins to emerge as we survey some of the best and longest outcome studies on gender transition: the longer the studies and the better the methods, the more negative the results. The treatment for this particular disorder is severe: lifelong experimental medicalization, sterilization, and complete removal of healthy body parts—a treatment Dr. Ray Blanchard, one of the world’s foremost sexologists, calls “palliative.” In spite of its severity, however,...
