Jindal, Huckabee, and Cruz Endorse Hatred to Win Votes in Iowa

  While progressive Christians allow themselves to be preoccupied by red paper cups, they are being distracted from attention to policies and events concerning the broad mandates of the Bible. Mandates which involve the care and treatment of people, often those unlike themselves. One such noteworthy event took place over the weekend (November 6th and 7th) as 1,700 people gathered in […]

Kim Davis in Contempt of Court

The Davis Case is About Defying the Rule of Law NOT About Religious Liberty

Federal Judge David Bunning ordered County Clerk Kim Davis to be held in contempt of court for her refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Rowan County, Kentucky. Davis will be released from jail when she agrees to do the job she was elected to do when she took an oath to perform “without favor, affection or […]

The Creation of Another Christian Martyr — County Clerk Kim Davis

Kim Davis won election to County Clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky this year replacing her mother who had done the job for 27 years before her. Once elected, Davis took an oath swearing to do her job “without favor, affection or partiality, so help me God.” On July 6th, James Yates and William Smith, Jr., who had been together […]

Audacity by Ray Comfort

Ray Comfort’s Audacity — Nothing Says — I Have No Respect for You — Like Giving a Copy to a Gay Person

Ray Comfort’s Audacity released this week for free on YouTube. Comfort created the hour-long film as a tool to create “peace between the church and the LGBT community” to let gays know that “Christians don’t hate homosexuals. We love them. We care about them in this life and the next.” Patheos blogger Camille Berdjick presents […]

Outlasting the Gay Revolution by Michael Brown

Michael Brown’s “Outlasting the Gay Revolution” Continues His Non-Academic Anti-Gay Rantings

[This post was never pushed out publicly. It was originally posted on Amazon and exists here as a record that I can link to when needed.] Michael Brown called the last public review I posted on one of his books Brown a “revision” not a review. I expect this book review will receive a similar response. […]

If an author refuses to address the subject of the intersection of faith with sexual orientation and gender identity with academic integrity including acknowledging: the cultural shifts in the status of women, the progression of understanding and input from experts in human sexuality, the merger of conservative politics and religion since the late 1970s with its destructive impact, each significantly influencing the ability to take an honest look at biblical translations, then why should we listen to you?

Kevin DeYoung’s Book — Another Author Lacking Academic Integrity But Telling Us What God “Really Says” Anyway

Kevin DeYoung’s What Does the Bible Really Teach About Homosexuality? offers yet another utterly maddening viewpoint of “God’s truth” about gay people. I’ve read the bulk of such books written over the past few decades, beginning with the first “gays are out to destroy America” book written for the evangelical community by Tim LaHaye in […]

Ryan T. Anderson’s new book Truth Overruled : The Future of Marriage and Religious

Ryan Anderson’s Truth Overruled Presents Ideology as Truth

  Ryan T. Anderson’s new book Truth Overruled : The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom uses only arguments “based in philosophy, jurisprudence, political science and social science” to investigate “what marriage is, why marriage matters for public policy, and what the consequences are of redefining marriage.” Attempting to keep the debate on marriage equality going […]

Family Research Council Deceives to Support Their Anti-Transgender Policies

On June 19, 2015, Family Research Council (FRC) published a position paper to critique and describe the transgender movement and ideology as they perceive it. The opening sentences of “Understanding and Responding to the Transgender Movement” pronounce, “In recent decades, there has been an assault on the sexes.” This is only the beginning of the academic problems used to […]

Legalized Discrimination Repackaged as Religious Freedom

  I was talking to a friend after church yesterday and mentioned to him the new tactic and recent rash of “religious freedom/liberties” legislations being introduced in various states. He questioned, “What are they?” I told him, “These legislations would make it legal to discriminate against other Americans, in particular gay and transgender Americans, in business transactions […]

Holding Religious Leaders Accountable for Damage to LGBT Youth

Transgender 16 year-old Leelah Alcorn stepped in front of truck on an Ohio interstate at 2 a.m. on Sunday morning, December 28th. She left behind an explicit explanatory note on her blog, which auto-posted after her death. The two-part post describes the root of Leelah’s despondency. From the age of four, she had sensed she was a […]

Why Dr. Brown’s Failure to Answer Matthew Vines’ Question is So Important

Matthew Vines, author of  God and the Gay Christian, debated Dr. Michael Brown, author of Can You Be Gay and Christian? on Up for Debate on Moody Radio on June 28, 2014. There was an almost imperceptible pause followed by a brush off that may have slipped by listeners. I want to highlight it so that […]

Where Can I Get the Persecuted Christians Version of the Bible?

Twelve white Christian heterosexual (assumed) men whose mamas didn’t teach them to share or respect the dignity of others. Tony Perkins on the passage of the “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” in Mississippi. “Today, I had the honor of joining Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant (R) at the signing of SB2681 — the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration […]

“Algo marica le ocurrió a América” por Dr. Michael Brown | Reseña

“Existe tu verdad, mi verdad y LA verdad.” Los cristianos deberían tener como procedimiento operativo estándar el apegarse a la verdad. Muchas veces nos apegamos hacía “mi verdad” cuando ésta confirma nuestros miedos. Esta inclinación, sin embargo, tiene efectos mucho más dañinos cuando “la verdad”, sea la suya o la mía, es manipulada. El Dr. […]

“Go and Do Likewise” — Christians Must Stop Oppressing the LGBT Community

Franklin Graham has been acting badly for several years. When his dad, Billy became ill, the lid appears to have popped off of Franklin’s extreme anti-gay views. He started becoming more vocal. He used his father’s reputation to bolster his views. Franklin propped Billy up in a chair and published letters about North Carolina’s Amendment […]
