If you think homosexual behavior is wrong, new research says you might not be right in the head.
This summer, the Supreme Court narrowly redefined marriage and handed the gay-rights movement a major victory: full "equality" and recognition by the government. With that box checked, the gay-rights movement can now focus on its ultimate goal: silencing those who disagree.
One new and troubling strategy has emerged from the scientific community. Instead of vilifying those who believe in natural marriage, suggest some researchers, we should diagnose them. more >>
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has slammed an anti-discrimination ordinance amended in the city of Dallas Tuesday to distinguish between "sexual orientation" and "gender identity and expression," as a ludicrous attempt at political correctness designed to allow men to use women's bathrooms.
"This ordinance isn't about discrimination, it's about political correctness — and Dallas city leaders have put political correctness ahead of both common sense and common decency. The facts are clear. No woman wants a man to be allowed in a ladies restroom or locker room, no matter the reason. And no man wants his wife, daughter, mother, or sister to be forced by law to contend with such an uncomfortable, disruptive, and potentially dangerous intrusion," said Patrick in a statement Wednesday.
"This ludicrous ordinance, like the one in Houston, reveals officials who are totally out of touch with Texas values, I have no doubt that if this issue is put to the voters, as opposed to being decided without adequate public notice and discussion, the people of Dallas — like those in Houston — will give it a resounding no," he said. more >>
As America continues to grow more hostile toward public prayer and conservative religious viewpoints, younger generations of courageous Christians will be faced with the challenge of defying the norm of secular culture to defend prayer and biblical truth.
In his book No Fear: Real Stories of a Courageous New Generation Standing for Truth, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins highlights 11 instances when young men and women risked everything to defend biblical truth and their religious beliefs from intense societal, political, cultural and spiritual opposition.
Perkins hopes readers, especially younger Christians, will be inspired to live out their faith with the same courage displayed in the real-life stories exhibited in his book, No Fear, which was praised by leading evangelist Franklin Graham, who believes the book will "help raise up a new generation of world changers." more >>
I'm almost getting used to the vitriol hurled at Christians in the media these days. But something just the other day caused me to chuckle. At least at first.
As you probably know, the Kansas City Royals defeated the New York Mets, four games to one, to win the World Series. As a lifelong Mets fan, I want to put the series behind me as quickly as possible — you'd understand that.
But something written in the aftermath of the World Series forced me to linger on the subject a little longer than I would have preferred. more >>
The University of Southern California will be purchasing a church property that dates back to the 1930s as part of the public academic institution's ongoing expansion efforts.
USC is in negotiations to finalize the purchase of the campus of United University Church, a Los Angeles-based church jointly operated by a United Methodist congregation and a Presbyterian congregation.
Pastor Frank Wulf of United Church told The Christian Post that he could not comment on the pending transaction, but direct CP to an earlier interview he gave to The Los Angeles Times. more >>
President Barack Obama has become the first sitting U.S. leader to be featured on the front cover of an LGBT publication, after he was named "Ally of the Year" by OUT magazine.
In a wide-ranging interview, Obama said that attitudes toward LGBT people in America have greatly changed over the past few years, and suggested that parents can no longer find justifications to tell their children why gay people do not deserve equality.
"To Malia and Sasha and their friends, discrimination in any form against anyone doesn't make sense," Obama said in an interview for the magazine, referring to his daughters. more >>
