Homosexuals: Conservative Christianity Is Our Last Enemy To Defeat

Christian life in America is changing and not for the better. No, I will not say Christians are being persecuted in our country. Not yet, anyway. After reading of the treatment Christians are receiving in the Middle East from ISIS and other Muslim murderers, anyone claiming that Christians in America are being persecuted doesn’t understand what true persecution is. Christians in America are not being persecuted, but they are most definitely being subjected to discrimination, harassment and prosecution, with almost all of it coming because of the Christian view that homosexuality is an abominable sin.

The Christian opposition to homosexual marriage has resulted in a cultural civil war with the media, the homosexuals and the rest of the liberals on one side and the Christians on the other side. With a few exceptions, the Republican apparatus has been weak in their support of religious liberty. Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson sent a religious freedom bill back to the legislature to be […] → Keep reading

More Churches Endorse Homosexuality

Last week the Presbyterian Church USA (not to be confused with the Presbyterian Church In America) voted to amend its constitution to allow homosexual marriages. A statement was added to officially recognize “a commitment between two people,” making the Presbyterian Church USA the largest protestant church to approve homosexual marriage.

The move was endorsed last summer by the church’s General Assembly, but the formal change required approval from a majority of the church’s districts. Of the 171 districts, the 86th vote for the change came last week from a district in New Jersey. The change will take effect on June 21. Not all members are happy with the change and this was apparently anticipated by whoever wrote the language to amend the church constitution. It includes a provision stating that clergy cannot be compelled to preside at homosexual weddings or host a homosexual wedding ceremony on church grounds.

The Mormon Church is also changing their position on homosexual marriage. The […] → Keep reading

Oklahoma State Representative Sally Kern: Deviancy’s Antagonist

If you’ve lived in Oklahoma very long you probably know who Sally Kern is. If you live outside of Oklahoma you might still know who she is. Since 2004 she has been the State Representative for District 84 and she is a Republican. Because of legislation she has proposed and statements she has made, mostly about the homosexual community, she has been vilified by the left and some on the right, mocked on national television programs, called every dirty and negative name you can think of, labeled a bigot by local media and targeted for reelection defeat by west coast liberals. She has also held true to her convictions, withstood the attacks and continued to propose bills that, in the words of blogger Michael Bates of Batesline, “are in support of the right to have an opinion and act on it, and against leftist fascism.”

For the 2015 legislative session she has filed eight bills, three of which have been […] → Keep reading

Church Endorsed Perversion On the Rise

Pastor John MacArthur of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, recently gave an interview to The Blaze in which he said that church denominations that have adopted more liberal attitudes to gay marriage and other issues “have no allegiance to the Bible,” describing them as “false churches,” “the apostate church,” and “Satan’s church.” He also described three types of Christianity – true, cultural and institutional. MacArthur said in his interview that cultural Christianity is in decline but I completely disagree with that. Cultural Christianity is growing by leaps and bounds and I believe the liberalization of church doctrine is a huge indication of this. Cultural Christians are those who, when asked, will say they are “Christian” for no other reason than they are American and don’t consider themselves atheist or Jewish. They identify themselves as Christians, perhaps because they do believe in God, but they are not biblically followers of Christ. A type of Christian not mentioned by MacArthur […] → Keep reading

Christians and the Culture War

Todd Starnes wrote a column yesterday in which he asked if Christians have lost the culture war. He says that over the past few years he has documented hundred of incidents of religious persecution in the United States and that the targets have always been Christians. I have written several posts about these incidents myself, including the Pentagon’s war on Christianity and numerous instances of homosexuals targeting Christian business owners who decline to provide services that would violate their religious beliefs. Who would have ever thought that the Internal Revenue Service would inquire about the content of a pro-life group’s prayers when investigating their tax exempt status? Who would have ever thought that military chaplains would be ordered to stop praying in the name of Jesus?

Starnes mentions a study done by Lifeway Research which shows a majority of Protestant pastors believe religious liberty is on the decline. Scott McConnell, vice president of Lifeway Research said, “Half of Americans […] → Keep reading

The Moral Dominoes Are Falling

With gay marriage on the cusp of being legal it’s no surprise at all that other immoralities that have always been illegal are beginning to get second looks. If one is made legal the justification for keeping the others illegal seems to be a losing battle. Morality has always been legislated to a degree but the direction our country is headed seems to be undoing it all.

Case in point. David Epstein is a 46 year old political science professor at Columbia University and is currently facing incest charges based on allegedly maintaining an incestuous relationship with his 24 year old daughter from 2006 to 2009.

Epstein’s attorney, Matthew Galluzzo, said, “It’s ok for homosexuals to do whatever they want in their own home. How is this different? What goes on between consenting adults in private should not be legislated. That is not the proper domain of our law. If we assume for a moment that both parties are consenting, […] → Keep reading
