Homosexuality and the Bible: a Flowchart

Not sure of the original source on this, but I think it’s pretty great. [Read more…]

Bryan Fischer: Blame Darwin, Liberals, Gays for Aurora Shooting

It’s common for pundits and media talking heads to use things like the tragic killing in Aurora, Colorado to buttress or even advance their agenda. Gun control advocates point to the reckless distribution of firearms, while moral conservatives blame the loosening of moral strictures in our culture. But thus far, talk show host Bryan Fischer [Read More…]

Further Thoughts on Chick Fil A

To be honest, I did not expect anything near the stir my first piece caused about deciding not to eat at Chick Fil A anymore. I’ve written lots of articles about LGBT equality before, but when you bring a favorite business into the mix, people get remarkably passionate. For the most part, I’ve enjoyed and [Read More…]

Further Thoughts on Mars Hill and the “Angry Queers”

There’s been some interesting discussion following my recent post about the vandalism of a Mars Hill satellite church by a group calling themselves the Angry Queers.
