    Former megachurch pastor Rob Bell appeared in a recent radio discussion with Christian British minister Andrew Wilson to discuss his new book, What We Talk About When We Talk About God, and grew frustrated when pressed by Wilson to explain his theological reasons for affirming homosexuality and same-sex relationships. Bell and Wilson appeared on the U.K. faith debate program "Unbelievable?" hosted by Justin Brierley on Premier Christian Radio. Wilson is a published theologian and elder at Kings Church in Eastbourne, East Sussex. The men, moderated by Brierley, started the discussion by debating various issues during the hour-plus program, but it...

    As expected, the media has crowned Jason Collins, the first openly gay NBA player, the new Jackie Robinson, and the Human Rights Campaign has called Collins a ďhero for our own times.Ē His actions were deemed worthy of a personal phone call from President Obama, who told Collins that he ďcouldnít be prouder.Ē Without disparaging Collins personally (I understand he had a great reputation among his teammates), here are some reasons why he is absolutely not the new Jackie Robinson. When Robinson broke the color barrier in 1947, there were no black equivalents of prominent and influential gays and lesbians...

    Nigel Evans, the Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons, will stand aside from his ceremonial role in the Queen's Speech after he was arrested on suspicion of rape and sexual assault. Mr Evans, who strongly denies the allegations, asked the Speaker to be excused from chairing the event taking place on Wednesday. The MP for Ribble Valley will not resign from his job and has received the backing of a number of fellow MPs. However, Philip Hammond, the Defence Secretary, suggested it would be "difficult" for him to carry on in such a high-profile role while under such scrutiny....

At the same time, he respects "anybody that's gay" while believing that homosexuality is a sin according to the Bible.

    On April 1, 2013 Dr. Phil aired a show titled: "Shocking Mom Revelations." As a part of this episode, he interviewed a mother whose daughter identified as a lesbian. During the episode, the mother shared about her disapproval of her daughter's "lifestyle choice" and expressed a desire for her daughter to see a counselor to get help in exploring her same-sex attraction. In shockingly un-therapeutic fashion, Dr. Phil flat-out shut the mother's opinion down, along with her Christian values, in favor for the simple explanation that "this is who her daughter is" and she should just accept it.

Collins announced in a Sports Illustrated article on Monday that he was a gay man who took his faith in Jesus Christ seriously. In a later interview on ESPN's "Outside the Lines"show, however, Broussard Ė who is a practicing Christian Ė said Collins' position was inconsistent with biblical teachings.

    Itís the Monday after the NFL draft and the NBA playoffs are in full swing. But today, Jason Collins, a journeyman basketball payer who averaged just over 1 point per game in the past season, is the leading sports story. The reason is that Collins declared himself the first openly gay male athlete in a major American team sport. The announcement garnered an outpouring of support, as admirers praised Collins for being willing to come out as gay in a field in which homosexuality has been particularly stigmatized. Others didnít think Collins' announcement should be much of a story. I...

    Two sports stories made headlines yesterday: The New York Jets released openly Christian quarterback Tim Tebow, and NBA player Jason Collins came out of the closet, making him the first active, openly gay professional athlete in the four major U.S. sports (basketball, football, baseball and hockey). It's not surprising to hear of Tebow's release; he rarely played for the Jets, was seldom used at all, and ended up being their third-string quarterback. I'm certainly no sports analyst, but it seems to me that he really wasn't given much of a chance in New York, especially considering that starting quarterback Mark...

Thousands of police mobilized ahead of the vote, preparing for dueling protests around the National Assembly building and along the Seine River. At least one spectator...

But, when a man comes in the name of Jesus and goes on national radio and denies Jesusí knowledge and teachings, it is a chilling thing to hear. On Saturday afternoon, I heard a rerun segment of Sean Hannityís nationally syndicated radio show on which he had two guests taking...

    ... In 1930, when he was 12, my dad was caught in bed with another boy at his New England prep school and sent home. My enraged grandfather hired a psychologist to straighten him out. The psychologist proclaimed that my grandmotherís extravagant love of her eldest child, and my grandfatherís harsh discipline, were responsible for Dadís sexual confusion. He pronounced the cure: that my father leave home. ... So at the age of 12, he was exiled by his family to board at schools and summer camps and spent the rest of his life on the run. After my mother...

    The case of a same-sex Connecticut couple accused of repeatedly raping and abusing two of their nine adopted boys is headed for trial. Married couple George Harasz and Douglas Wirth of Glastonbury were supposed to be sentenced Friday in Hartford Superior Court under a plea deal, but instead withdrew from their agreement with prosecutors. The men had already pleaded no contest in January to one felony count each of risk of injury to a minor ó a reduction from even more serious charges related to sexual assault. But in a surprise turn, the coupleís attorneys pulled them out of...

    Watch This: Gay Talese on Tailoring and Journalism Video here "I essentially write like a tailor," Gay Talese says at one point in the video above."It's very methodical, it's very carefulÖ I have a sense of design before I even put a needle in my work." The legendary journalist (and Esquire writer) is talking, here, about how he's carried the sense of style and the general approach to one's work that he learned from his father ó an Italian immigrant and tailor by trade ó through to his chosen profession. "My idea as a writer is to make the stitching...

    MSNBCís blatant promotion of gay marriage appears to have taken a bizarre and sad turn. Krystal Ball, co-host of The Cycle, has taken to using her four-year-old daughter Ella as a prop in a pro-same-sex marriage video. In the 3-minute video, Ball asks her young daughter a series of questions about who she is allowed to marry, eventually asking her what happens if she loves another girl. Ballís daughter, who is clearly taking cues from her mom, says that because she lives in New York she can marry another girl if she loves her. [Video} Such blatant and disgusting use...

    The Boy Scouts of America said Monday that the Utah Pride Center ó a LGBT advocacy group ó could not charter a troop, even though the group said it would comply with the youth organization's controversial policy banning gay Scouts and leaders. The Utah Pride Center submitted its application in late February to sponsor a troop with heterosexual leaders and middle-school age boys several weeks ago, said Valerie Larabee, the center's executive director. She said the bid, which comes ahead of the BSA vote in May on whether it should keep the ban, was not a stunt. "We feel great...

    Yesterday I got a call from a reporter from one of our stateís larger newspapers. The newspaper wanted a comment from someone in the community to add a local perspective to all the national stories about the Supreme Courtís hearings on marriage. Since I didnít live in that community, I wondered why she called me. What she said shocked me, particularly in view of what Christians will celebrate on Sunday. As I listened to her explanation, running through the back of my mind was how often God said to his people, ďDonít be afraid.Ē When I hung up, I couldnít...

    **snip In January, Sarah Crank, 14, received death threats after testifying before the Maryland state senate. She testified: Hi, Iím Sarah Crank. Todayís my 14th birthday, and it would be the best birthday present ever if you would vote ďnoĒ on gay marriage. I really feel bad for the kids who have two parents of the same gender. Even though some kids think itís fine, they have no idea what kind of wonderful experiences they miss out on. I donít want more kids to get confused about whatís right and okay. I really donít want to grow up in a...
