Controversial Compromise

Bill aimed at balancing LGBT agenda and religious freedom gets some support but alarms both sides.

Last month organizations including the Heritage Foundation, Family Research Council, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, and Concerned Women for America sent an opposition letter to Republican House leaders. They say the bill does too much to extend SOGI protections to public accommodations—something the Utah Compromise did not touch.   A Republican congressman on Friday introduced... Continue Reading

Austin’s Solution to Homelessness: The Homeless Hotel

The current trendy rejection of God when it comes to homelessness is a concept called “housing first.”

While it is self-evident that ending homelessness requires housing, it often turns out that when the homeless are provided housing that homelessness is not their their primary problem. Instead, formerly homeless people in housing often pursue “personal goals” that do not improve their quality of life. And since in many instances the housing first approach... Continue Reading

Social Justice Program Says Teachers Should ‘Reject And Resist’ Parents Who Disagree With It

A spokesperson for the company refused to directly address this mandate even after being asked about it multiple times.

The program, called “Deep Equity,” is offered by Corwin Press, a subsidiary of SAGE.  According to its website, the program was developed by Gary Howard, a self-proclaimed civil rights activist with experience in “social justice, equity, education, and diversity.”   A social justice schooling program meant to train teachers in eliminating racial disparities between students also instructs them how...

Christians: When it comes to Old Testament pronouncements, don’t “Do an Izzy”

Each side wants to use the Old Testament for its own purposes, while refusing permission for the other side to do so.

The church must be like Israel in that we must display a level of holiness and justice towards that bears witness to the goodness and glory of God.  We must speak and live in such a way that we showcase the perfectly obedient One. If you don’t get that, and you’re on the political right,... Continue Reading

Liberal Irish Presbyterians Dismayed by Conservatism

Heavy-handed treatment of same-sex issues harmful to soul of the church.

Very few northern Presbyterian liberals are brave enough to speak out publicly, but everyone is watching for the outcome of this struggle for the soul of the church. Meanwhile the parting words of outgoing moderator Dr Charles McMullan hang heavily over the current controversies. He said in June: “In a rapidly changing and secularising Ireland, we... Continue Reading

Can Scripture Teach Gen Zs To Be Godly Parents?

Parenting is the godly maturing of the child’s brain, God’s way.

Those who no longer consider God’s Word as authentically relevant and who have placed their faith in their personal moral subjectivism, are saying: “You have no right to tell me what I can or can’t do.” What’s our evangelistic choice?   First in a Series of Four We are living in a post-Christian era, an...

Twilight of the Idols

In our day, where pluralism reigns in the culture, there is as much satirical hostility to the idea of one God as there was in Nietzsche’s satire.

In the culture of pluralism, the chief virtue is toleration, which is the notion that all religious views are to be tolerated, all political views are to be tolerated. The only thing that cannot be tolerated is a claim to exclusivity. There is a built-in, inherent antipathy towards all claims of exclusivity. To say that... Continue Reading

The Essence of Evil: Sex with Children Has Become Big Business in America

Children, young girls—some as young as 9 years old—are being bought and sold for sex in America, with the average age now 13 years old.

It is estimated that at least 100,000 children—girls and boys—are bought and sold for sex in the U.S. every year, with as many as 300,000 children in danger of being trafficked each year. Some of these children are forcefully abducted, others are runaways, and still others are sold into the system by relatives and acquaintances.... Continue Reading

Pennsylvania Governor Vetoes Bill Banning Down-Syndrome Abortion

Wold argued that the bill was unconstitutional and “not consistent with the fundamental rights” protected by the 14th Amendment, which guarantees the right to privacy.

Abortion is legal in Pennsylvania during the first 24 weeks of pregnancy for any reason except the gender of the fetus. The bill, which passed the Republican-controlled legislature a day earlier, aimed to protect against abortions over a prenatal Down-syndrome diagnosis as well, although it included exceptions for rape, incest, and medical emergencies.   Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf...

Chick-fil-A Put an Obama and Hillary Supporter in Charge, but Dumped Christians

Money for social justice and Muslim refugees, but not for the Salvation Army.

If Chick-fil-A wants to be in the business of corporate social responsibility, rather than charity, it will over time become increasingly hostile to the very customers who made it successful. Corporate social responsibility will take it down the same dark road of virtue signaling and political correctness. Then, before you know it, there will be... Continue Reading
