Evangelicals, Marriage Equality, and Moral Absolutes

September 24, 2014

Editor’s note: A version of this article was published by TheBlaze. Telling the public that you’re an evangelical who believes the Bible is God’s infallible word, while advocating for same-sex marriage, doesn’t act as…

Matthew Vines Struggles to Defend “Gay Christian” Stance During Live Debate

July 3, 2014

In April, 24-year old Matthew Vines rattled the Church with his first book titled God and the Gay Christian, in which he reinterprets 2,000 years of traditional Christian teaching to justify same-sex behavior within Christendom….


Where Do Millennials Attend Church?

June 20, 2014

Christian denominations are trying to crack the code when it comes to attracting Millennials to their congregations. But as recent news suggests, the successful formula has little to do with popular Christian trends.


Is Biological Determinism on its Way Out?

June 12, 2014

Without the bedrock of biological determinism, the LGBTQ movement loses its legal luster. The assembling power of “discrimination” becomes, instead, the rather ignorable whimper of disagreement.

Rachel Held Evans and the ‘gag reflex’

August 27, 2013

At his Gospel Coalition blog, Thabiti Anyabwile writes that in arguing against gay marriage, social conservatives ought to use the “yuck factor” in our favor. The title of his post is “The Importance of Your Gag Reflex When Discussing Homosexuality and ‘Gay Marriage.'” His post includes a description of gay sex apparently for the purpose of inducing in his readers the ‘gag reflex’ mentioned above and, as a result, to convince them of the efficacy of such an argument.


Lutherans Gone Wild: God, Gays, and Gender in the ELCA, Part III

August 27, 2013

This last article in the examination of ReconcilingWorks (RW, Parts I and II available here) analyzes RW’s denial of sexual and lifestyle norms interrelated with RW’s denial of natural genders and their significance. These Lutheran heretics reject standards of family formation within the natural institution of marriage and sexual propriety, once again irrespective of consequences. RW’s baleful influence in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) calls into question whether any committed Christian can in good conscience remain in the ELCA.

Christie’s Shaky Signing

August 23, 2013

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s signing into law a ban on professional counseling to change sexual orientation for minors has already ignited religious liberty and other concerns about state power. A similar California law is currently judicially blocked.

Presumably Christie, who opposes same-sex marriage, signed this bill to politically protect his left flank as he campaigns for re-election and possibly knowing it won’t survive the courts anyway.


Eboo Patel and Problematic Pluralism

August 16, 2013

You cannot take notes during a lecture by Eboo Patel. The irony is that you really should. Back in 2011, Patel came to Concordia College in Moorhead Minnesota, where I live. His public lecture was in promotion of his new book “Sacred Ground”, about the history of religious pluralism in America. His lecturing style combines the enthusiasm of a revival preacher, the popcorn organization of a stand-up comedian and a sort of pseudo-sophistication that is intended to remind the audience that Patel graduated from Oxford. Patel identifies himself as an interfaith leader. So far, a lot of people seem to agree.


Wild Goose Goes Gay – and a Whole Lot More
