A controversial conservative activist who's known for advocating against homosexuality in East Africa has warned that the United States Supreme Court could bring forth God's judgment by legalizing gay marriage.
Scott Lively, former Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate and head of Scott Lively Ministries, expressed concern about the Supreme Court's decision later this year in a column on his website.
Campus housing specifically for 15 alternative sexualities, including sadomasochists, is acceptable, but fraternities that just allow men are not, at Wesleyan University.
Wesleyan University housing has an option for students who want to live with others identifying with one of 15 categories — LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM. The university's inclusiveness excludes, however, male-only fraternities.
Delta Kappa Epsilon sued Wesleyan University after the liberal arts college ordered all of its fraternities to admit women, charging sexual discrimination and false and deceptive practices. more >>
I just ran across Graham Moore's Oscar acceptance speech from last night, described by The Huffington Post to be the night's most moving speech.
"I tried to commit suicide at 16 and now I'm standing here," he said. "I would like for this moment to be for that kid out there who feels like she doesn't fit in anywhere. You do. Stay weird. Stay different, and then when it's your turn and you are standing on this stage please pass the same message along."
But I would add one more point; don't stay in your sinful lifestyle. more >>
If "love is love" and "everyone should have the right to marry the one they love," then why can't any number of people come together in "marriage"?
On Valentine's Day, three men in Thailand were "married," and immediately, they became an Internet sensation.
As reported on GayStarNews.com, when Joke, Bell, and Art posted their "wedding" pictures online, "the internet went crazy," with one Facebook post receiving 50,000 Likes and more than 1,000 comments. more >>
Below are remarks from Mark Tooley's February 19 address at Perimeter Church outside Atlanta.
Recently a Nashville area church pastor who professes to be evangelical made headlines by announcing his church's acceptance of same-sex couples. There was more media for a Portland area minister whose evangelical denomination cut ties with his church after he announced his support for same sex marriage and LGBTQ affirmation.
Debates over same sex marriage and homosexuality were previously until fairly recently reserved for historically liberal Mainline Protestant denominations, who've had a 40 year conversation over Christian sexual ethics, having already liberalized theologically in the 1920s or earlier. Those debates have fueled accelerated membership loss and eventually schism for the Mainline Protestants, who have imploded from 1 of 6 Americans 50 years ago to 1 of 16 Americans today, making them no longer Mainline but more accurately oldline or even sideline. more >>
After a judge ruled last week that Washington florist and Christian grandmother Barronelle Stutzman violated the law when she refused to provide arrangements for a same-sex wedding, Stutzman rejected a tempting settlement offer that would have spared her from losing her home and business, because it would have forced her to turn her back on God.
As Stutzman was found guilty of violating Washington's non-discrimination law last Wednesday for declining to service the wedding of Robert Ingersoll and Curt Freed in 2013 due to her Christian belief of marriage, Stutzman runs the risk of losing not only her business but her house and life savings once a summary judgement is reached.
Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson offered the 70-year-old Stutzman, the owner of Arlene's flowers, a settlement on Thursday that would have spared Stutzman the high, bankrupting legal costs that she could incur as a result of the summary judgement. more >>
