The Orlando Massacre & The Ethical Dilemma for Conservative Christians

What happened in Orlando recently is certainly worthy of outrage and action. 49 people killed in cold blood, and many more lying in hospital beds wounded.

5 Reasons Why More Christians Are Becoming LGBTQ Affirming

If one follows the news they’d see that many major Christian denominations are split over LGBTQ inclusion. As I have followed these developments, one observation that has stood out in my mind is that the division over LGBTQ inclusion is a recent development, historically speaking.

The Disgusting Hypocrisy of the Anti-Trans Bathroom Movement

So listen– I’ve been thinking about this whole movement to make peeing while trans illegal, and I have a few thoughts.

Focus on the Family Exec Shuns Gay Daughter: She Breaks Her Silence

Amber Cantorna didn’t date any boys growing up, but she didn’t think much of it. She had taken her purity vow and even sealed it with a ring– after that, she just assumed that God would simply place the right man in her life, at the right time. Except, he didn’t. In fact, at 23 she [Read More…]

LGBTQ Rights And The Hypocritical Christian Outrage Over Sharia Law

For some reason I have a lot of anti-Muslim articles and blogs that flow through my newsfeed. Recently it’s been around the issue of Sharia law– Christians warning that America must not allow Sharia to be practiced in the United States; arguing that Sharia is oppressive, and that others should not be forced to live [Read More…]

Gay Marriage is the Law of the Land- And God Isn’t Going to Freak Out About It

Moments ago the US Supreme Court announced that marriage equality is now the law of the land. As our LGBTQ brothers and sisters celebrate civil equality under the law, undoubtedly there will be many conservative brothers and sisters who will warn of God’s pending judgment against the United States.

Why You’re Completely Unable To Judge Caitlyn Jenner (Or Anyone Else)

Yesterday the internet exploded as Caitlyn Jenner was introduced to the world. While so much of what I saw online was a kind and loving reception for her, much of it was not.
