A fertility doctor and abortionist accused of sexually abusing his female patients in incidents which were noted as early as 2004 has turned in his medical license.
Several colleagues of Dr. Roger Ian Hardy and a former patient have accused the reproductive endocrinologist of touching women inappropriately, including when they were under anesthesia.
"I was afraid...that something criminal had been done to me,'' a patient who accused Hardy of sexually molesting her during a procedure in December 2003, wrote in a report in 2004. more >>
You may have guessed it — money.
Online she calls herself Elizabeth Raine to protect the "leading" university she is currently attending. She, however, freely admits that she is a highly educated American-born medical student who is serious about the marketing and sale of her virginity for the right price, and so far it seems like it's working.
As of Thursday evening the highest bid on Raine's virginity stood at more than $500,000, according to Elizabeth-raine.com and chances are it could go higher by the time bidding closes at 8 p.m. on May 7. more >>
An influential research organization that publishes reports showing the economic benefits of same-sex marriage legalization, which is frequently cited by the media and other entities, has ties to LGBT activist groups.
The Charles R. Williams Institute on sexual orientation and gender identity law and policy is based at the University of California, Los Angeles' School of Law. Established in 2001, the Williams Institute periodically publishes reports arguing for the economic benefits of states legalizing same-sex marriage.
Often using data like the 2010 U.S. census and providing guestimates on costs for weddings and travel, the institute has argued that states will benefit financially from gay marriage legalization. more >>
NASHVILLE—Pornography addiction is the greatest moral crisis confronting the church because it "happens in darkness," says Heath Lambert, executive director of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors.
During the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission's leadership summit on human sexuality in Nashville last week, Lambert, a professor at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Boyce College, called pornography "the greatest moral crisis in the church today," above issues of divorce and homosexuality. He also commented that Christians can rail against homosexuality but then go to the computer and feed their addiction to porn.
The Christian Post caught up with Lambert after his remarks at the ERLC summit and asked him about the role he plays in fighting porn addiction in his congregation, and what it might be like for an entire generation to grow up sexually educated through porn. more >>
NASHVILLE—University of Texas sociology professor Mark Regnerus addressed criticisms of his recent study that compared the outcomes of children raised by same-sex couples against those who are raised by their biological and heterosexual parents during a panel discussion at the Ethics & Religious Liberty leadership summit in Nashville, Monday night.
Regnerus' social science study found that children function best as adolescents and young adults when they are raised by their biological mother and father or are adopted by a mother and father who remain married.
During the panel discussion he commented that among the majority of same-sex headed families that he had studied, few had relationships characterized by "stability and longevity," and consequently his findings that children raised by heterosexual couples fared better than those in same-sex households could not been seen as a "slam-dunk." more >>
Liberal Christians often champion themselves as facilitators of deep, authentic dialogue about the cultural issues facing America's faithful. But when the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission gathered yesterday for their first-ever leadership summit to genuinely discuss a myriad of sexual morality topics - including same-sex marriage and sexuality, the premier cultural conundrum facing the Church - unexpected kickback erupted on social media.
Unsurprisingly, non-Christians and the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender & Queer (LGBTQ) community was less than nice in their commentary surrounding the ERLC's biblical perspective on God's design for marriage between one man and one woman. What the ERLC didn't anticipate was women's rather off base resentments launched at the summit and its mission.
Ladies in the Twitterverse had this to say about the summit: more >>
