For years I've been sounding the alarm about an impending social, cultural, and spiritual crisis, and for years critics have compared me to Chicken Little, discounting my warnings as the ravings of a hysterical, religious fundamentalist. Well, it's a little late for that now.
Ten years ago, I charted this progression and made this prediction:First, gay activists came out of the closet Second, they demanded their "rights" Third, they demanded that everyone recognize those "rights" Fourth, they want to strip away the rights of those who oppose them Fifth, they want to put those who oppose their "rights" into the closet
Initially, I was met with scorn and derision: "No one wants to put you in the closet!" more >>
Too many are evangelical in name only. After declaring via Twitter she is "leaving evangelicalism" because World Vision will not hire folks within same-sex "marriages," Rachel Held Evans is now "second-guessing" her decision.
Likely jolted by the realization that her female evangelical angst persona sells books, Held Evans is taking a break from blogging to allow the spotlight to pass over her reactionary decision to abandon a community that doesn't endorse all her values.
But here is what Held Evans and the Religious Left don't understand: Evangelicalism is not an identity we slip on and off like a pair of shoes when it is comfortable. It is a counter-cultural uniqueness reflecting our commitment and responsibility to place God's will first in our public and private lives. more >>
Comedian and political commentator Bill Maher warned Friday that he thinks there is a "gay mafia" that will "whack" anyone that crosses them.
His comments were made during a discussion of the recent resignation of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich in an online-only segment of his HBO show "Real Time." A clip from the segment that was posted to YouTube on Friday is now stirring controversy online attracting comments from many who support his view.
In the clip, Maher appears to disagree with gay activists for targeting Eich over a $1,000 donation he made in 2008 in support of California's Proposition 8. The measure banned gay marriage in the state until the Supreme Court struck it down in June last year. more >>
Many Christians have been warning for years that the radical homosexual activist lobby is made up of Christian-hating fascists who are in rebellion against both God and nature, who are hell-bent on criminalizing Christianity and pushing to the fringes anyone who publicly acknowledges natural human sexuality and the age-old, immutable institution of legitimate marriage as created by God.
Sadly, many people, even many Christians, think that I and others are using hyperbole when we refer to this sexual anarchist "LGBT" movement as "homofascist" or the "Gaystapo." I hope you'll think again. It's time to wake up and smell the impending anti-Christian persecution. It's fully at hand.
BarbWire contributor Laurie Higgins, commenting on the Washington Examiner story below, summed it up well in an email tonight: more >>
Graham cracker producer Honey Maid is celebrating a controversial advertisement featuring two gay men as parents in its "This is Wholesome" advertising campaign, which the company says has attracted 10 times more positive comments than negative ones.
The commercial published on YouTube on March 10 has been viewed more than 4 million times as of Friday afternoon and has sparked a barrage of conflicting views between proponents and opponents of homosexuality.
"Today we celebrate all families. From working moms to two moms; stay at home dads to single dads; adopted kids to surrogate kids. Honey Maid recognizes that the reality of family has changed, but the wholesome connections that all families share will endure.#thisiswholesome," noted the company on the video. more >>
Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has warned that African Christians will be killed if the Church of England embraces same-sex marriage, noting that decisions by the central body on the controversial issue can have a very big impact abroad.
"I have stood by gravesides in Africa of a group of Christians who had been attacked because of something that had happened in America. We have to listen to that. We have to be aware of the fact," Welby said in an interview, The Guardian reported on Friday.
He added that if the Church of England was to embrace gay marriages "the impact of that on Christians far from here, in South Sudan, Pakistan, Nigeria and other places would be absolutely catastrophic. Everything we say here goes round the world." more >>
