Building the Resistance to Same-Sex Marriage (fifth in a series of articles) The Profound Consequences of Same Sex Marriage for Business and the Professions J. Mark Brewer I was a law student when I first learned of the consequences of not being politically correct concerning homosexuality. A former Miss America’s contract as the citrus growers’ brand-ambassador was allowed to lapse because she had successfully campaigned for the repeal of a pro-homosexual ordinance in Miami-Dade County. She was quoted as saying,… Read more

Building the Resistance to Same-Sex Marriage (third in a series of articles) Find the Morality Missing in the Case for Natural Marriage, or Lose By Robert R. Reilly; June 8, 2015 Why have the pro-natural family forces been losing in court? Intentionally or not, Judge Richard Posner explained the reason in a 7th Circuit Court ruling (Sept. 4, 2014), in which he decided against the Indiana and Wisconsin laws restricting marriage to a man and a woman: “The state [Wisconsin]… Read more

Marriage: It’s Not Political, It’s Biblical

Building the Resistance to Same-Sex Marriage (fourth in a series of articles) Marriage: It’s Not Political, It’s Biblical By Dr. James Taylor Dozens of books have been written in recent years by liberal theologians in an attempt to demonstrate that homosexuality, homosexual relationships, and homosexual marriage are fully consistent with Biblical Christianity. I have grown weary of reading that King David was a homosexual because he loved Jonathan, or that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of a lack of… Read more

The Fourteenth Amendment Does Not Mandate Same-Sex Marriage

Building the Resistance to Same-Sex Marriage (Part two of a series) The Fourteenth Amendment Does Not Mandate Same-Sex Marriage By Herbert W. Titus and William J. Olson Within the month, the nation will receive the opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court as to whether the U.S. Constitution requires all of the states to jettison their domestic laws and sanction same-sex marriage.

Reconsidering the U.S. Supreme Court’s Authority to Mandate Same-Sex Marriage

(Part one of a series) By William J. Olson and Herbert W. Titus On April 28, 2015, nine unelected lawyers drawn from three elite law schools (Harvard, Yale, and Columbia) listened to 90-minutes of oral argument about same-sex marriage and then retreated behind a wall of red velvet drapes to confer secretly about whether the U.S. Constitution requires that the U.S. Supreme Court impose same-sex marriage on the entire nation. Consider for a moment the process by which that decision… Read more

REVIEW: An Orthodox Response to “Same-Sex Unions”

What is the relationship between morality and the Eucharist? Do our actions, outside of the church building, define who we are in Christ? Essentially, does our bodily relationship with self and others affect our communion with the Other? These are the issues addressed by Fr Philip LeMasters in his book, Toward a Eucharistic Vision of Church, Family, Marriage and Sex. Given that “same-sex unions” is the hot topic of the day, this review will center on chapter six of the… Read more

Fr Danislav! You Are Not a Woman!

The recent media blitz about a former Olympic star so-called TRANSITIONING into the opposite sex is just kook-koo. Absolutely NUTS. And totally … not new. First of all – confusion about sex is nothing new. A note to the younger crowd, I don’t typically use the term GENDER, which traditionally refers to language (as in le and la in French), I use the word SEX to refer to male or female or, of course, an act that may produce children… Read more

Aaron Copland, a Muslim, and the Resurrection of the Common

A priest walks into a convenience store to buy gas for his car; it’s Good Friday, Orthodox style. The Royal Hours have been completed and, back at the church, the body of the Savior adorns the Cross in the midst of the Temple. The clerk behind the counter says, “Ah … last Friday was a big day for you, huh?” “You mean Good Friday?” I asked – “Actually, ours is today. I’m Orthodox.” “Wait. Didn’t the Catholics have theirs last… Read more

My Big Fat Weak Fasting (Or Speaking Wookie During Lent)

I’ve been thinking:  Don’t make Lenten Resolutions – that is not profitable. Just do what the Church prescribes! Better yet, REPENT. (Whatever that means.) Stuff pops into my head; often I am to blame – as I set not a watch at the door. I leave the door of my mind unlocked – if not fully open. Even when I make an effort to set a guard, I do so sloppily – as if I am some prize for the… Read more

But In The Parish Hall, He Be All Like …

Look. Let’s just be real. It’s easy to be a Christian in church for 2 hours a Sunday – right? Oh sure, some places Liturgy is only an hour and a half – others longer – who knows, you may show up late … Less time being “Christian” is even easier, n’cest pas? And gossip … well, that’s not so easy in the church (but it can be done). Gossip is best served up in the Hall, after the service…. Read more
