Demi Lovato is the latest professing Christian (and celebrity) to declare that, "The LOVING God that I believe in, would never condemn anyone for loving another human of the same sex."
What's the next step on this slippery theological slope?
I predict it will be: "The LOVING God that I believe in would never condemn anyone." Just watch and see. more >>
An African-American church in Washington, D.C. that has been in operation for over 100 years will soon be closing down because the property has been sold.
Leadership at the Alexander Memorial Baptist Church of the Georgetown neighborhood recently agreed to a sale of their church property.
"All that remains in wealthy Georgetown are four black churches. Soon, there will be only three," reported Sam Ford of WJLA-TV. "… [T]he pastor and trustees of the 106 year old Alexander Memorial Baptist Church are about to sell the church — set to be turned into condominiums or townhouses — for $6.5 million." more >>
LOS ANGELES — A majority of California Latinos do not see marijuana possession or non-violent drug possession of any kind as a legitimate cause for deportation, according to a poll released by Latino Decisions and Presente.org Friday.
"Latinos believe that the war on drugs is a failure and that our sentencing system is broken," said Arturo Carmona, executive director of Presente.org. "Families shouldn't be torn apart over marijuana possession."
Carmona adds, "It's time to enact common sense policies and stop wasting money over minor marijuana possession charges. It's time to stop allowing the justice system to prey on America's most vulnerable residents. We need reasonable and responsible drug sentencing reform that ends the war on communities of color." more >>
A tawdry and titillating TV trend is underway. Seven, that's right, seven shows are being rolled out featuring one central theme: complete nudity.
Romans 1:21-32, written to an enlightened civilization that completely destroyed itself, lays out a pattern repeated throughout history that has become America's story:Reject truth Lose discernment Experience moral chaos
Here's the deal: the crisis in our culture is a crisis of truth. Unless we categorically and decisively reject the secularist, moral relativism of 21st century America, we are doomed. This is not a scare tactic; this is sober reality. Our hope is that God in His mercy would send a spiritual awakening reversing this trend before it's too late. more >>
An associate professor of feminist studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara has pleaded no contest to criminal charges related to her assault on a group of pro-life students in March, which was partially captured on video.
The Santa Barbara Independent reported on Thursday that Dr. Mireille Miller-Young, who had been accused of stealing and destroying an anti-abortion posted during an event, as well as pushing and scratching the activist, is pleading no contest to the charges of grand theft, vandalism, and battery.
"Today's plea brings us one step closer to seeing justice done in this case," said Katie Short, mother of the 16-year-old activist that Miller-Young is accused of assaulting. "Pro-life advocates should not be subjected to intimidation and violence for lawfully exercising their right to free speech, and we are happy to see that Ms. Miller-Young is being held accountable for her actions." more >>
Recent debate about access to women's birth control could not be more deceptive or ironic because it's based on the false presupposition that reproductive rights is solely a woman's issue. The universally known biological fact is that no woman can become pregnant without a man's sperm.
Yet, "family planning" initiatives have always targeted women, not men. None involve a systematic implementation of vasectomies or chemical castration. None address the reality that no female birth control method prevents STD/HIV/AIDS transmission.
Promoting female birth control is profoundly sexist. Targeting women reinforces widespread, long-held cultural and legal norms that ignore male sexual responsibility and culpability, and actually creates tangible, authentic gender inequality. more >>
