  • Archbishop of Canterbury Admits 'I Am Copping Out' When Asked 'Is Gay Sex Sinful?'

    In an interview with GQ earlier this week, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby dodged the question of whether gay sex is sinful. He admitted to acting like a politician and to "copping out" on the answer, despite the fact that most Anglicans in the global church agree that gay sex is wrong, as it has been consistently condemned by the Bible and church tradition. GQ's Alastair Campbell asked Welby point-blank: "Is gay sex sinful?" After balking at the question, the archbishop gave a very telling answer. "You know very well that is a question I can't give a straight answer...

    In 2012, my promotional printing company, Hands on Originals, was approached by a customer to print a message that conflicted with my conscience. When I said no, they sued me. Hi, my name is Blaine Adamson. I got into the T-shirt printing business because I wanted to create Christian shirts that people would want to wear. Christian T-shirts at the time were so cheesy, they were so bad. For all the years that I’ve been running my business, Hands on Originals, I’ve happily served and employed people of all backgrounds, of all walks of life. That’s why it was hard...

    At this point, you’re probably already familiar with the case of baker Jack Phillips who declined to bake a cake for a gay couple’s wedding on the grounds that it went against his beliefs as a Christian. In June, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case which suggests the legal issue here isn’t as simple as it might appear (to some) at first glance. Today the NY Times published a sample of the 4,500 responses to the story written on the website or on Facebook by their readers. To the Times’ credit, they didn’t use this as an...

    Seattle Mayor Ed Murray resigned from his position Wednesday afternoon after a fifth accusation of child abuse came to light, this time from his own family. "While the allegations against me are not true, it is important that my personal issues do not affect the ability of our city government to conduct the public's business. ... It is best for the city if I step aside. To the people of this special city and to my dedicated staff, I am sorry for this painful situation," Murray said in a statement. The Seattle Times reported on Tuesday that the latest accusations...

    In the 1980s, I had a boss who had gotten a masters degree in psychology from New York University. He was a brilliant man; could have been a doctor. He told me a story that explains much of what we see in society today. It seems that while doing his graduate work in the early 1960s, he had to do research on lab rats, which were given the synthetic hormones used in the then new birth control pills. The results, he told me, showed that the grandchildren of these lab rats would have high rates of homosexual behaviors. From what...

    Rorate Caeli ^ | September 6, 2017
    As reported by kath.net and others, G. Schneeweiß-Arnoldstein, who runs the Austrian traditionalist blog kreuz-net.info, has been found guilty of inciting hatred against homosexuals and conditionally sentenced to four months in prison. The blogger’s crime was an article describing syphilis as “God’s punishment” for “homo-fornicators”. Schneeweiß-Arnoldstein pleaded not guilty to inciting hatred. His lawyer explained that “fornication” is a technical, theological term referring to sexual intercourse outside of marriage, and that “God’s punishment” refers to the consequences of mortal sin. The judge, Gerald Wagner, replied that the language was vilifying, and that the state has to protect the group in...

    Advertisers are turning to gay couples and ethnic minorities to sell their products Advertisers are so worried about being accused of racism or homophobia they are shying away from using images of white people and straight couples. Marketing departments are even putting diversity above relevance to their target audience to avoid accusations of bigotry, a survey of 500 companies has found. A third of advertisers questioned said they had used fewer white models and heterosexual couples over the past year. More than a third of these said they were taking this approach to “prevent perceived discrimination”. The findings are likely...

    Disney Junior released an episode of a cartoon aimed at preschoolers that depicted two "married" lesbian moms. Doc McStuffins, a show about an aspiring doctor who "fixes" toys with help from friends, featured a family led by two "moms" in its August 5 episode "The Emergency Plan." Although Doc McStuffins has been praised by many cultural critics for its depiction of a young African-American female doctor, it's now under fire for its most recent episode pushing same-sex "marriage." Here are 12 facts about Doc McStuffins. The creator of the show, Chris Nee, is in a same-sex 'marriage.' Michelle Obama...

    “The Message” author Eugene Peterson says he regrets telling me he would officiate a same-sex wedding if asked to do so today by a gay couple who were “Christians of good faith.” “On further reflection and prayer, I would like to retract that,” the evangelical author said in a statement. Since we published the interview at RNS on Wednesday (July 12), the internet has caught fire. The article was the last of a three-part interview series that addressed a range of topics: why Peterson was stepping away from public life, what he thinks of Donald Trump, his view of megachurches,...

Gnostic dualism divorces the body from the soul and the “knowing self” from the natural world....

    For 11 years, the Truth Wins Out website aggressively attacked those who claimed to be ex-gay, along with individuals and organizations that supported ex-gays. Last month, Wayne Besen, the founder of Truth Wins Out, announced that he was closing shop because, he claimed, “we accomplished our major goals.”What, exactly, were those goals? Wayne writes, “We helped expose and ultimately vanquish (with the help of other heroes) major ‘ex-gay’ programs including Love Won Out, Exodus International, and JONAH.” Still, he reluctantly notes, “similar programs will always exist, as charlatans will provide a supply of snake oil to fill a demand.”The reality...

In the clip Brzezinski states: I think he is such a narcissist, it’s possible he is mentally ill in a way, and this is on the table. I said it months ago, and now everyone is starting to say it like it’s new, and it’s OK to say. He’s not well. At the very least, he’s not well. And he’s so narcissistic, he does not believe the rules apply to him, and that’s where the ignorance label may apply because this is a man who...

    The political #LGBT are an influential cadre within the Hard Left. As is the case with all Leftists, their subjective positions on various political, economic, social issues are to be taken as Gospel. They are True Believers. They are arrogant. They are bullies. Consider one of the Leftist Scarlet Letters [for which there is no forgiveness and the penalties are harsh]: #Homophobia. A phobia is an irrational fear; it is a mental illness that results in the afflicted person having a distorted view of reality. There is a clinical diagnosis of homophobia: the sufferer believes that exposure to homosexuals will...
