Andy Stanley’s Ridiculous Attack on Families and Churches

I like Andy Stanley. His writing and teaching have been a help to me over the years. But his recent attack on families and churches leaves me wondering if he hasn't drunk too much of his own mega-church Kool-aid.I've enjoyed Stanley's leadership sessions at Catalyst and elsewhere.

John Kasich Delivers Blow to Religious Liberty

In what was one of the most disturbing moments of last night's GOP debate in Houston, John Kasich declared war on religious liberty.He ridiculed those who refuse to endorse behavior they believe to be sinful.The same guy who said he would lock private business owners (Apple) in a room with the FBI until they agreed to give access to their phones, said Christians should just accept the travesty of Obergefell and accept the abolition of marriage.I presume he believes the same about Roe … [Read more...]
