“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 […]

I thought World Vision was going to break loose from the pack and lead other para-church organizations in doing the right thing by honoring the legal marriages of their same sex employees. I knew it would be a tough slog to free themselves from modern traditional biases created over the last 60 […]

Day of Dialogue | Sacred Bullying from Focus on the Family

Focus on the Family, a conservative Christian ministry, wants high school and college-aged students to join them in their “truth telling” sacred bullying-in-Jesus-Name of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community during Day of Dialogue. Even when words are wrapped in heart-themed paper and tied with a “Jesus-loves-you” ribbon, if there is something rotten at […]

Christian Anti-gay “Rapper” is Daughter of My Youtube Cyberbully

Young Jessica K has become an unlikely Youtube “sensation” in the past few days. Her “Rated T for Tolerance” video jumped from about 5K views in 8 months to over 223K views in just four days. Publications and people reacted to the ignorance and bigotry of Jessica’s severely offensive anti-gay, stereotype-filled spoken word diatribe. If you were to follow […]

Dr. Tom Fuller, UMC and the Distortions in “Gay Christianity?”

Most churches find themselves obliged to investigate the issue of homosexuality and the Bible. To have a serious, productive conversation, Christian churches need to either be equipped in leading such a conversation with facts, Biblical integrity and an honest conversation including as participants those who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Christians. In lieu of […]

Back to the Start | The Real Roots of Exodus | Pt.I

In September 2012, I attended the inaugural conference for Restored Hope Network (RHN) at Sunrise Community Church   in Sacramento, CA. The forming committee for RHN  had been gathering for several months in response to the belief that Exodus International was straying from its roots. When they concluded that their differences with Exodus were irreparable, several Exodus member ministries […]
