    Peter Vlaming teaches French at West Point High School in West Point, Virginia. He was fired by the school board last Thursday for refusing to use a transgender student’s preferred pronoun. (The student was born as a biological female but wishes to use the pronouns “he” and “him.”)The school’s administration claims that Vlaming was told multiple times to refer to the student using male pronouns. “By failing to follow the directive, he was therefore discriminating and creating a hostile environment,” the superintendent told the board.The next day, students at the school coordinated a walkout in support of Vlaming. Several...

    More than any other matter, Christians who become famous or in any way visible public figures will one day be asked by media outlets what they think about homosexuality. The question becomes: What and how is the best way to respond? The touchy subject has resurfaced again in light of singer Lauren Daigle, whose popularity is surging, and her response when asked on "The Domenick Nati Show" if she thought homosexuality was a sin. She said she could not say because she isn't God. Several prominent voices asked her to retract, some more stern than others, while others urged people...

    We’ve seen this show before. A very talented Christian recording artist (or author) becomes very popular, reaching beyond a typical Church audience and becoming popular in the larger world. He (or she) is then asked about homosexuality and fudges the answer. In turn, the Church quickly condemns (him or her). Can we do better this time around?I’m talking specifically about the very popular Christian recording artist Lauren Daigle, whose career skyrocketed when she recently appeared on the shows of Ellen Degeneres and Jimmy Fallon. She received plenty of criticism (from some Christian circles) for those appearances, but many others saw...

    ROMERemember back in 2013, shortly after Pope Francis was elected when he shocked the world with his words: If a person seeks God and has goodwill, then who am I to judge, when asked about a gay priest? What was then seen to be a change in decades of dogma sent shockwaves around the world, landing the pontiff on the cover of Advocate and winning him praise among LGBTQ groups and lapsed Catholics. In some ways, Francis has been eating his words ever since, constantly called to explain by conservatives in the church what he meant. Now it seems Francis...

    President Trump last spring pardoned Dinesh DSouza, the conservative commentator and filmmaker who pleaded guilty in 2014 to making illegal campaign contributions. DSouza has been criticized even by fellow conservatives for his frequently racially-charged public output, such as his decision to criticize former president Barack Obamas use of a selfie stick by tweeting, You can take the boy out of the ghetto and his repeated claims that Obamas policies were steered by his Kenyan fathers anti-colonialism. While most of his output centered on critiques of liberalism, DSouzas long career as a pundit and writer has also led him to make...

At the end of August, Campbell asked his friends on Facebook...
