The blockbuster Disney classic, "Cinderella" repeats this advice throughout: "Have courage and be kind." Tragically the overwhelming majority of Christian leaders have not followed this biblical admonition regarding LGBT deceit and now the day of reckoning is at hand.
Kudos to those leaders who have demonstrated courage over the past decade but to those who have fallen short, may this commentary provide challenge and conviction. Homosexuality is labeled as "unnatural," "indecent," "impure," "shameful," "degrading," and a "perversion" (Rom.1:24-27) by a loving and holy God and if 2-3% practice this lifestyle, it is and always will be sinful behavior.
For the record, deception can be humorous, humane or harmful. Guess which one has been given a "full-court press" by Gay activists to dupe the masses in America? more >>
Attorneys for ousted Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran say the city of Atlanta's request to have his discrimination lawsuit dismissed only proves their argument that Cochran was fired because city authorities do not agree with his Christian beliefs.
In a brief filed in federal court on Wednesday, the Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys said the city's motion to dismiss, which was filed in federal district court on March 25, "fails to make a persuasive argument for the court to dismiss Cochran's lawsuit."
Cochran, who served as fire chief for seven years, is suing the city, which he claims violated his constitutional rights when he was terminated in January for sharing his Christian faith in a self-published book and handing out copies to employees. more >>
President Barack Obama symbolically demonstrated support for certain transgender political goals this week by announcing his support for bans on conversion therapy for youth and the addition of a gender neutral bathroom in the White House.

The dust is finally settling after vicious harassment and death threats besieged the Christian owners of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana. An onslaught of national media attention catapulted father and daughter O'Conner to the center of a national firefight over religious freedom. Forced to close their doors and go into hiding, Kevin O'Conner contemplated closing up shop permanently due to violent threats.
Thanks be to God, their circumstances changed when The Blaze launched an online fundraiser raising $842,387 from nearly 30,000 donors across the country. Not all professing Christians are happy about this financial blessing.
Some among the Religious Left took a bold stand for justice from their living room sofas to write mischaracterizing blogs about faithful Christians' like Kevin O'Conner and his young daughter Crystal for being uncompassionate, bigoted and unloving because of their convictions on sexuality and marriage. However, in a surprising turn of events it is the conservative Christian pizzeria owners left doing justice and showing mercy according to the Gospel. more >>
With all the major, life critical issues taking place in America and around the globe, it is absolutely mind-boggling that President Obama has decided to declare war on so-called "conversion therapy," joining in the battle to outlaw professional counseling for minors struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender identity confusion.
This is political correctness run amuck, and the president, with all his power and influence, is intruding himself where he most certainly does not belong, standing in the way of personal autonomy and individual choice, seeking to deprive young people of the very thing that might just save them from many years of suffering and pain.
By what authority does he seek to do this? more >>
The owners of Memories Pizza, the Indiana pizza shop that was forced to close down last week after its owners received death threats for stating that they were Christian and would not cater a gay wedding, announced their plans for the $840,000-plus they have received from the online crowdfunding page GoFundMe.
The O'Connor family told The Daily Mail that although they were only looking to raise a goal of $200,000 to help them get back on track after closing shop for about a week and becoming the center of a national media storm, they will be donating much of the extra money to a number of good causes, including giving some to Washington florist Barronelle Stutzman.
The 70-year-old Stutzman, who owns and operates Arlene's Flowers in Richland, Washington, is at risk of losing her life savings, home and flower shop because of a lawsuit filed by the state attorney general after a gay couple posted on social media about how they were referred to another florist when they asked Stutzman to make floral arrangements for their same-sex wedding. more >>
