    The modern day LGBT movement wants you to believe that the people featured in the new documentary “Desire of the Everlasting Hills” really don’t exist. They are figments of the fevered imaginations of the Christian right.Meet Dan, Rilene and Paul, all refugees from deep enmeshment in the LGBT life, each finding a home in sexual sobriety and, not incidentally, the Catholic Church.It is impossible to watch this important documentary without tears, and not sad tears either, but happy ones, tears that come from a joyful movement of the spirit.These are people who have been deeply wounded by the choices...

    If I asked you, as we mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day, to sum up that battle in one word, what would it be? For me, it would be courage. Courage means going forward, into the unknown, with no guarantee of success. It means moving out of your comfort zone and being willing to act boldly when the situation requires it. Without it, you couldnt storm the beaches in France, or accomplish your mission in the face of terrorist attacks. Courage is built into the DNA of the American character.

    Since the 1960's era of peace, drugs and "free love," Christians, conservatives and patriots have largely departed the critical heart shaping, storytelling, teaching and communication roles that are essential to preserving America's culture. Rather than "standing in the gap" with courage, the majority of media conservatives and Christians have chosen to take the path of least resistance, sprinting away from the "public square" when demonstrably false, vicious lies and personal attacks are directed our way. We have largely shown the opposite of courage under fire. Turning the other cheek is one thing. Running and hiding like cowards is something quite...

    There was a quiet and peaceful stillness about the cemetery this January day. It was snowing heavily and the pristine white was accumulating between thousands of rows of headstones marking the graves of our true heroes who gave their lives in battle or died in old age, having served our country for decades, fighting enemies to preserve our freedom. A very old general was being buried that day and the Honor Guard and the ceremonial horses were barely visible in the heavy snow. I could hear the cadence of the steps and the horse hooves beating rhythmically against the asphalt....

Fortunately, there have also been many who were truly interested in serving the people who put them in office. Looking at ones life, voting record and words can provide significant insight into which of the aforementioned categories a political figure fits. In the 1960s, John F. Kennedy wrote a book titled Profiles In Courage, which was very inspiring, as he examined the lives of...

    After Steve Chalke and Rob Bell joined the Accepting Evangelicals Group in affirming faithful same-sex erotic relationships earlier this year a new group of post-gay evangelical Christian leaders has emerged. Their testimonies are clear, powerful, hugely encouraging and most welcome at a time when many young evangelicals are genuinely confused about the issue. These are men in pastoral ministry who admit to feelings of same sex attraction but who also see the Bibles prohibitions on same-sex relationships as non-negotiable. The core of this new group, recently interviewed by Christianity magazine, are Sam Alberry, a church leader in Maidenhead, Sean Doherty,...

    The totalitarian political left proves every day its relentless determination to complete President Obama's stated goal of fundamentally transforming this country. The political right can either wake up to this reality and unite in promoting a better vision or stand by and watch its children's future disintegrate. The left criticizes the right for its alleged partisanship, extremism, intolerance and angst, when the left dwarfs the right in all these characteristics. Contrary to leftist propaganda, mainstream conservatives haven't grown more strident or extreme -- unless you define extremists as those who are valiantly trying to preserve America's greatness and prevent the...

    It would make things so much easier for everyone if Edward Snowden were working for China. And that's certainly a possibility. His decision to flee to Hong Kong -- a Chinese vassal -- was an odd one, given that China is hardly a bulwark of transparency and civil rights. It's a bit like complaining that Boston is too Catholic and then moving to Vatican City in protest. Then there's the nature of the crime itself. Informed sources I've spoken with are generally aghast by what they say is the scope of information Snowden stole, material some believe he couldn't have...

The Gallup poll backs up a Rasmussen poll from last week that at the time looked like an outlier. The Rasmussen poll showed Obama and Romney tied at 45 percent, but was the first to show such a tight national race after a number of polls in...

Ohio has 66 delegates total, with 63 at stake on Tuesday. Santorum failed to qualify for any district delegates in three Ohio congressional districts representing nine delegates because he didn't turn in names there. ABC News reported that in six other congressional districts, the former Pennsylvania senator's campaign submitted fewer names than required to be eligible for...

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 24/8/11 | David Lev
    The debate on the intentions of Glenn Beck and other Christian evangelicals rages on, and Dr. Gadi Eshel, a Land of Israel activist, told Arutz 7 Tuesday that while he did not believe that Beck's intentions were improper, rejecting the friendship of evangelicals could cause anti-Semitism. Eshel was responding to comments by Jerusalem City Council member Mina Fenton Monday, who voiced vociferous opposition to Beck's appearance in Jerusalem on Wednesday, saying that his rally was designed to encourage missionary activity. Eshel told Arutz 7 that Christians like Beck supported Israel because they were strong believers in the Bible, and not...

    Steve Gershom (a pseudonym) is a gay Catholic man in his late twenties. His blog,stevegershom.com, has been around for some months, but he has just decided to make it public. It's original, funny, poignant -- and culturally important. You can also find him on Twitter asstevegershom. I am profoundly grateful to Steve for agreeing to write this post for the Bubble. +++++++ When Leila asked me to write about gay marriage, the first thing I found out was how little I know about it. If I wanted to say anything coherent, I'd have to have definite beliefs about some deeper,...

    NORWALK Kimberly Nizato, the woman who surrendered her severely emaciated dog to an acquaintance in spring 2010, pleaded no contest Monday to a single charge of felony animal cruelty. The Bellflower resident was working as a kennel assistant at an Irvine veterinary hospital when she relinquished the ailing 3-year-old German shepherd. She was arrested April 16, 2010. The dog weighed 37 pounds at the time and was named Courage by German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County, which claimed responsibility for his care. Veterinarians testified last year at a preliminary hearing that the dog ate dirt and rocks to survive.

    The Ignorant Fishermen ^ | 6/21/11 | DJP I.F.
    In the days of the judges of Israel, Israel had turned their backs repeatedly on the Law of Moses and the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses (Deut. 31:29, Judges 2:6-11). When they followed these absolutes of time and ETERNITY (which was almost NEVER) they were blessed and prospered by the hand of the Lord (Judges 4-5). "The consequences of this lawless departure led to the break down of society and to the chastening hand of the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses" During one particular time when Ehud - a godly man, deliverer and judge of the...

    The motives behind Glenn Becks recent trip to Israel now make more sense with his announcement Monday morning that he will be holding a major rally in Israel this summer. I believe Ive been asked to stand in Jerusalem, Beck told his audience recounting a list of times in history when people and nations failed to stand with the Jewish people. Beck explained, as he has often in the last year, how the life and thinking of the German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer has influenced him: He asked people to stand for the Jewish people. He told of Bonhoeffers call...
