    Society is in an aggressive state of change, and that includes the arena of Christian education. Baylor University is the world’s largest Baptist college. The 16,000-student institution was founded in 1845, making it the oldest perpetually-operating university in Texas. Even so, don’t assume it’s old-fashioned. On March 23rd, the school hosted an event certifying its contemporary credentials. As advertised on Instagram, the extravaganza was called “Queer Sex Ed.” An accompanying caption read, “Secret is out. See you tomorrow!! You can still DM us to become a member and join our Queer Sex Ed!!!” The ad didn’t detail what was involved,...

    Liberal societies uphold the principle of sexual self-determination - in contrast to traditional church sexual morality. The Church could learn something from this, says moral theologian Stephan Goertz - without that meaning relativism. Stephan Goertz, a moral theologian from Mainz, believes it is necessary for the Church to commit itself to the principle of sexual self-determination. Behind the consensus principle there is far more ethical appreciation of the staff than behind the traditional nature principle of Catholic sexual ethics, the theologian writes in the current "Herder-Korrespondenz" (May issue). The Church could learn a lot from the moral sensitivity of liberal...

    House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., downplayed widespread concerns Thursday about biological males competing against biological females in spots competitions. Jeffries' comments came shortly after the House passed the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act in a 219-203 party-line vote. The legislation, introduced in February by Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., would require biological females to only compete against other biological females in women's sports that receive federal funding under Title IX, a 1972 civil rights statute prohibiting sex-based discrimination in education. "MAGA Republicans are trying to sensationalize an issue that doesn't really exist in the way that they...

    Twitter sparked backlash this week after some users noticed it had quietly removed language in its hateful conduct policy that explicitly protected transgender people from online harassment. The social media platform had prohibited the targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender people since 2018. Some online noticed this month that the sentence had been plucked from Twitter’s section on slurs and tropes, while all other descriptions of policy violations remained intact. Archives captured by the Wayback Machine showed the previous version still existed April 7, the day Twitter announced it had updated its abuse and harassment policy to redefine “targeted harassment.”...

    Conservative body in Church of England encourages dioceses to protest, and says opposition is growingConservative clergy and parishioners have launched a small but vocal revolt against the Church of England’s plan to offer to bless the civil marriages of same-sex couples, a move that some Christians believe is contrary to biblical teaching. In Buckinghamshire, a large group parish plans to refuse to offer blessings to same-sex couples in its seven churches and is taking steps to withhold its annual contribution of £235,000 to the diocese of Oxford in protest. A group of traditionalist clergy in the City of London have...

    For decades, progressives have been aggressively informing us that they are devout fans of “diversity” and “multiculturalism.” These words have taken on an almost totemic significance, with “diversity is our strength” becoming a mantra for Canadian lefties. I have my quibbles with these buzz-words—diversity is a description, not a value—but I have often found myself wishing, over the past few years, that those who brandish these terms actually believed in them. What we have found as the LGBT movement achieved cultural dominance is that for progressives, “diversity” is where people look different, but think the same. Thus, Western nations (primarily...
