By Martin G. Selbrede Chalcedon.edu There has been no end of Christian punditry directed against the recent Supreme Court ruling concerning marriage. We’ve heard disputes about definitions (“whatever else it is, it’s not a marriage”), bald citations of the appropriate Biblical texts, commentary on anti-Christian agendas, tirades against “legislating from the bench,” opposition to federalizing a state matter, tradition, values, faith, etc. And each of … Continue reading How Christianity’s Attitude Toward Justice and Taxes Led to the SCOTUS Ruling on Gay Marriage
[T]he current obsession with gay marriage is not a step towards a version of heterosexual monogamy transplanted into the heads of gay men, but a withdrawal towards safety and an unconscious awareness that so far nothing (decriminalization, sexual liberation and acceptance) had worked. In the end, it’s all make-believe — a last-ditch effort to save a way of life that is intrinsically self-destructive. Read the … Continue reading Church Militant: I Was the Other Man: An Insider’s Look at Why Gay Marriage Will Never Work
[Editor’s Note: Some encouraging words from one of our favorite sites. Thanks Nancy.] Given the surprising (and apparently sudden) changes in what our country is now considering to be “moral” government-approved behavior, I thought it was time for a pep talk. Most of you all are probably a lot like me. It hasn’t been difficult to live like a Christian woman even in a culture … Continue reading feminia girls: Shine it!
[Editor’s note: If you don’t read anything else, read this. Every one of us is acquainted with someone who has bought into the marketing agendas of the homosexual movement. They’ve become propagandists without knowing it. Even Christians who try to cite homosexual theology or are perverting doctrines about sin and forgiveness, judging,and love, etc. etc. etc. Where did all of this come from? They’re parroting … Continue reading Mohler: After the Ball–Why the Homosexual Movement Has Won
June 29, 2015: If you think Friday’s Supreme Court decision was about equality or equal rights for the three percent of the American population (at the expense of the 97 percent), you couldn’t be more wrong. If you think that Friday’s decision has no impact on you because you don’t care what people do in the privacy of their bedrooms, you couldn’t be more wrong. … Continue reading Hagmann: The Marxist Agenda Behind the Rainbow
With the US Supreme Court’s decision and the extraordinary pressures to re-define marriage and accommodate the demands by gay activists for homosexual unions to be accepted as “marriage”, many are asking: Well, what difference does it make?the pink agenda Revolutionary Agenda Fourteen years ago Africa Christian Action published the landmark book: The Pink Agenda – Sexual Revolution in South Africa and the Ruin of the … Continue reading Christian Action: Does the US Supreme Court’s Re-Definition of Marriage Really Matter?
One of the most pervasive issues of our time has been the movement to embrace homosexual behavior, same-sex “marriage,” and the marred versions of masculinity and femininity that accompany this lifestyle. References sympathetic to the homosexual lifestyle appear now in books, on television, in films, and in video games and graphic novels. Even the popular social networking platform Facebook announced the addition of “gay marriage … Continue reading AiG: Pro-Gay Theology: Does the Bible Approve of Homosexuality?
Friday’s Supreme Court decision, though not much of a surprise, is distressing, disheartening and disgusting. Even the most adamant defender of so called “gay rights” ought to at least affirm that the decision is fundamentally flawed, driven by judicial overreach, and by any sane reading of the Constitution, unconstitutional. It has, nevertheless, been decided. How state and local governments ought to respond is an important … Continue reading R.C. Sproul Jr. – Supreme Comfort

George Orwell once wrote that he lived in an age when stating the obvious was the first duty of intelligent men. I believe that activists and lay people are rising up and carrying out prophetic work in the culture because pastors and priests by and large are not carrying out a prophetic calling in their pulpits. I speak as a former pastor and my critique includes my own years of pulpit ministry.Who will doubt, for instance, that we live in a sex-saturated society? Hollywood, TV, books, magazines, music videos, and advertising have been spewing out a gospel of unrestrained sexual indulgence for decades. Pre-marital sex has practically become the norm among adolescents, abortions have risen dramatically as a result, and homosexuality is not only tolerated, but is quickly becoming “normal” as an accepted cultural lifestyle. And now certain academics are beginning to defend the acceptability of inter-generational sex (pedophilia). And nobody questions that Christians, too, are influenced negatively by these immoral “norms”. Nevertheless, in the face of rampant anti-moral trends, it is my observation that pastors and priests, rarely, if ever touch on issues of sexual morality from the pulpit.
