Who’s the bigot?

Mar 18, 2019 by

from Voice for Justice UK: Columnist Alice Thomson wrote in The Times last week, ‘Don’t let bigots win sex education battle’.   Fulminating over the prejudice of Muslim parents at Parkfield Primary school, who are objecting to the promotion of homosexuality and same sex marriage to children barely out of nappies, she proclaimed, ‘(this) primary school head teacher deserves our support in his clash with religious prejudice that harms all children’! What wicked bigots these protestors are!  By...

The Scandalous Academy: Social Science in Service of Identity Politics

Mar 18, 2019 by

by Scott Yenor, Public Discourse: Thanks to the work of sociologist Mark Regnerus, a prominent peer-reviewed journal has retracted a deeply flawed study on how social stigma affects the life expectancy of sexual minorities.

More Americans than ever before are skeptical about the integrity...

Mar 18, 2019 by

by Will Jones, The Conservative Woman: THE Conservative Woman has commented here and here on the extraordinary evidence given by David Steel to the Inquiry into Allegations of Child Sexual Abuse linked to Westminster; on his confession that he did nothing about Cyril Smith, in spite of ‘assuming’ his guilt in relation to offences concerning young boys, and later recommended him for a knighthood.

Episcopal Bishops hear call to Evangelize even as Church faces Inevitable Demise

Mar 18, 2019 by

by David W Virtue, DD, Virtueonline: The Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops met in Kanuga, NC this past week in an attempt to put lipstick on a pig. Michael Curry’s much ballyhooed “way of love”, an advance certainly on Frank Griswold’s Circle Dance of Dispossession, and other Sufi ramblings, saw the HOB get an evangelical wakeup call from two speakers, who would, in times past, have been shown the door, not invited in. The first was a woman bishop from the...

Mar 18, 2019 by

by David Kurten, The Freedom Association: Under cover of Brexit, the government is pushing through one of the most unpopular and destructive policies ever considered by a ‘Conservative’ government. It wants to make Relationships and Sex Education compulsory in schools from September 2020.
