An ex-gay group has recently released a report on various Virginia academic institutes, dubbing them "unsafe zones" for students seeking sexual orientation change therapy.
Voice of the Voiceless announced the release of a report earlier this week, titled "Campus Climate Report: Virginia University LGBTQ Resource Centers an 'Unsafe Zone' for Students with Unwanted Same-Sex Attractions."
The 86-page report is based off of the research of VoV President and Co-Founder Christopher Doyle and includes information on the LGBT resource centers of seven major Virginia universities, which Doyle argued were biased against students seeking sexual orientation change efforts therapy. more >>
Heretic. It's a favorite word that many Christians have no problem dropping on the heads of their fellow sisters and brothers.
In common parlance, the term is used to describe any person who disagrees with "orthodox Christian teaching." The problem, of course, is that there are different perspectives on what exactly constitutes orthodox Christian teaching.
Some claim this for Calvinism, while others claim this for Arminianism, or for Roman Catholicism, or for Eastern Orthodoxy. And we must not forget the many Fundamentalist groups who reserve the term "orthodox" only for people who agree with every one of their distinctive beliefs and/or practices. more >>

The United Methodist Church's internal struggle over the Protestant denomination's stance on homosexuality has become increasingly public over the past few years.
Although the UMC's official position is that of declaring homosexuality sinful and barring practicing homosexuals from the ministry, a number of clergy, groups, and congregations want the church to change. One group, known as the Reconciling Ministries Network, seeks to unite churches under their banner, creating a more inclusive atmosphere for the LGBT community.
Back in the 1980s, RMN created a program in which UMC congregations could become "Reconciling Congregations." more >>

WASHINGTON — The "Culture War" is not just directed at religious liberty, but the Christian faith, Fox News conservative columnist Todd Starnes remarked to The Christian Post during an event launching his new book, God Less America: Real Stories From the Front Lines of the Attack on Traditional Values. The "mainstream media" is ignoring this problem, he added, not because of any animus toward Christianity, but because few of them know Evangelical Christians.
Family Research Council, a social conservative think tank, held a ceremony to launch the book on a humid Thursday evening at FRC's Washington, D.C. headquarters.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Starnes explained that he was led to write the book due to the material he had gathered for his columns for Fox News. more >>
