Please allow me a moment to vent. I assure you that it will be controlled venting, without vitriol, hyperbole, or vindictiveness. But venting it will be. Shall we call it holy venting?
If President Trump does not oppose same-sex "marriage," I will be disappointed but not surprised. That's why his recent comments on "60 Minutes" were disappointing but not surprising.
But was this election really about "the idolatry of white supremacy and self-preservation"? Did white evangelicals simply ignore Trump's "racism, misogyny, and ethnocentrism," indeed, his alleged "blatant" racism?
Really now, even though millions of conservative Christians would have been terribly upset had Hillary won, do you think that students on Christian campuses would be sitting with therapy dogs and coloring books to comfort them in their grief?
No sooner was it clear that Donald Trump would be our next president then the "racist" and "sexist" charges started to fly.

Dr. Benjamin L. Corey, who blogs as a committed (and formerly fundamentalist) Christian, recently posted an article entitled, "The Christian Right's False Hope In A Conservative SCOTUS," in which he challenges the idea that "if we had a SCOTUS filled with justices largely appointed by Republicans, we wouldn't have Roe v.

I love traveling abroad, and since 1986, I have traveled outside the United States (primarily overseas) close to 200 times, including almost 50 trips to Asia and more than 70 trips to Europe.
So I'll admit it. I did come up with the title of this article for shock value, but the fact is, you need to be shocked. In other words, the title may be sensational, but it is only sensational because it is true.

On March 30, 2016, the National Enquirer released a bombshell report, accusing Sen. Ted Cruz of having 5 mistresses, and the mainstream media was all over it, pressing him on the accuracy of the charges, reading between the lines if he didn't explicitly deny every detail of the report, and talking about it incessantly for days.
Make no mistake about it. If you are a conservative Christian and Hillary Clinton becomes our next president, she will declare war on certain aspects of your faith. Your religious liberties will be targeted, and your biblical beliefs will be branded disturbing, if not downright dangerous.

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship is one of the leading campus ministries, and its publishing arm, InterVarsity Press, is one of the top Christian publishers. But this fine ministry is learning the hard way that, when it comes to homosexuality, you cannot straddle the fence.
