    A study has found a scientific link between low levels of intelligence and those who express homophobic views. The findings, published by researchers at the University of Queensland, Australia, supports existing studies that have previously drawn correlations between having a low IQ and holding prejudiced views. However, this marks the first time a link between lower intelligence and homophobia has been examined in populations outside of the US. Published in the journal Intelligence, the study drew from a sample of more than 11,500 Australians. The research team analysed data from the 2012 Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA)...
  • "Luxury has deranged all things" ~ Saint Clement of Alexandria on living as a Christian in a decadent culture

    Today, December 4, is the feast of Saint Clement of Alexandria who, though little remembered today, was lauded in antiquity for his combination of erudition and sanctity. Theodoret, the Christian historian of the mid-5th century, deemed Clement a man who, "surpassed all others and was a holy man." Saint Jerome included Clement in his work, On Illustrious Men, saying, "he is the author of notable volumes, full of eloquence and learning, both in sacred Scripture and in secular literature." The life of Clement, whose full name was Titus Flavius Clemens, straddled the late 2nd and early 3rd century AD. He...

    Christian author and pastor Max Lucado, who holds biblical Christian views on marriage, issued an apology for “disrespecting” and “hurting” the LGBT community in his past sermons after the Washington National Cathedral was criticized for inviting him as a guest speaker. “In 2004 I preached a sermon on the topic of same-sex marriage. I now see that, in that sermon, I was disrespectful. I was hurtful,” wrote Lucado, pastor of Oak Hills Church, a nondenominational Christian church in San Antonio, Texas, in a letter last week to the Episcopal Church’s Cathedral Church of Saint Peter and Paul in the City...

    The Washington National Cathedral has come under fire for hosting Max Lucado, a prominent author and pastor who holds biblical Christian views on marriage, as a guest preacher. Max Lucado was invited by the Episcopal Church's Cathedral Church of Saint Peter and Paul in the City and the Diocese of Washington to preach at a virtual service Sunday. A backlash among members of the Episcopal Church, a denomination known for politically liberal views on marriage and sexuality issues, quickly followed. Critics of Lucado cited his previous written opinions about same-sex marriage as a cause for concern in a petition asking...

    American Girl, a doll and storybook brand beloved by young girls since the 1980s, has released a “2021 Girl of the Year” named Kira whose story featuring aunts in a same-sex “marriage” has taken parents and children by surprise. “Kira's aunts are married lesbians, and that needs to be known by every adult who hands the book to a child or who allows a child to check it out from the library,” said one book reviewer on Amazon. The character Kira, along with her doll avatar, was revealed as “2021 Girl of the Year” on Good Morning America on Dec....

    Some parents say they're keeping their kids home from school this week because of a Black Lives Matter school discussion that includes Queer and Trans Affirmations. In some other school districts, students have been asked to make a pledge to accepting the affirmations, but not in Ames. "In some states they have made a pledge to support the 13 principles, but we are really having conversations about accepting and affirming differences." Says Dr. Anthony Jones, Director of Equity for Ames Community School District. He says in Ames schools the discussions are about making sure all students feel accepted. "It's about...
  • Is It Racist or Bigoted to Oppose Homosexuality?

    Apologetics Press ^ | 01/28/2021 | Dave Miller
    Is It Racist to Oppose Homosexuality?by Dave Miller, Ph.D. One favorite ploy by those who wish to advance the homosexual agenda in America is to compare opposition to homosexuality with the discrimination of African Americans that has characterized some portions of the American population. If you oppose the legalization of homosexuality and favor a ban on same-sex marriage, you are “just like racists who oppressed blacks in the South.” The Bible certainly teaches very clearly that the mistreatment of one’s fellow human beings is sinful, and that God makes no distinction between humans on the basis of skin color, ethnicity,...

    Homosexualist Fr. James Martin features in 'Wonderfully Made'NEW YORK (ChurchMilitant.com) - An award-winning Jewish filmmaker is to release a documentary film aimed at offering LGBTQ+ Catholics with homosexual iconography of Jesus. Director Yuval David, a Jew "married" to his Catholic "husband," says he noticed the absence of LGBTQ+ portrayals of Jesus in Catholicism — a faith where icons play a significant part. The lack of visual representation of a "gay Jesus" led David to create a feature-length movie exploring the challenges and aspirations of LGBTQ+ Catholics. The film "Wonderfully Made" will be released in early 2021 and features interviews with...

    Of all the things that incoming President Joe Biden could do on his first day in office, why was one of them signing a radical executive order promoting transgender activism? It's obviously because, in his view, "transgender equality" is the great civil rights issue of our day. Except that it isn't. Instead, the president's executive action declares war on the rights of others, especially females. Allow me to explain. On January 25, 2020, Biden tweeted, "Let's be clear: Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time. There is no room for compromise when it comes to basic human...

  • Skyrocketing lesbian ‘divorce’ rates show failure of same-sex couples imitating marriage

    Life Site News ^ | 01/08/2021 | Joseph Shaw
    It seems that women in the U.K. who consider themselves “married” to other women are separating in soaring numbers — at rates higher than actual divorces, which is to say among heterosexual couples, who alone can marry. One lesbian activist, Natalie Drew, blames this uptick in lesbian “divorces” on same-sex “marriage” itself. The Daily Mail reports that “divorces” among same-sex couples increased from 428 in 2018 to 822 in 2019, and of the 2019 figure, almost three quarters are lesbian couples. (There were also 107,599 actual divorces that year in the U.K., an increase of 20% on the previous year.)...
  • Guardian journalist claims Christian forgiveness and redemption are ‘code for conversion therapy’

    A writer for The Guardian newspaper has labelled Christian teaching on forgiveness and redemption as “insidious” and “a dog-whistle for conversion therapy”. Fred McConnell, a woman who lives as a man, referenced the Ashers ‘gay cake’ case among concerns over a local church’s stance on LGBT issues. The comments came as LGBT activist and General Synod member Jayne Ozanne launched a multi-faith campaign attacking biblical sexual ethics. Biblical teaching McConnell, who failed in a bid to be listed as ‘father’ on her child’s birth certificate last year, looked into the church’s beliefs after “hearing a rumour about a sermon being...

    The media has normalized an anti-religious bigotry that threatens to remove faithful Christians, be they Catholic or anything else, from public service.In a series of articles by its editorial board, media columnist Margaret Sullivan, and former Voice of America Director Amanda Bennett, the Washington Post has mounted a coordinated attack on Robert R. Reilly, the new nominee for VOA director, claiming he is an existential threat to the organization’s mission to provide independent reporting to foreign audiences.The reason they deem Reilly disqualified to serve as VOA director isn’t about a lack of credentials. He was director from 2001 to 2002...

    December 15, 2020 (Campaign Life Coalition) — If you thought Bill C-6 was bad as it was, take another look. It just got so much worse! Last Friday, the federal Justice Committee completed its “review” of Bill C-6 (the “conversion therapy ban”). However, instead of listening to the serious concerns brought forth by scores of qualified medical experts, church leaders, ex-LGBT representatives, and parental rights groups, the Liberal majority shut their ears and hardened their hearts. Nothing would move them. In fact, they actually intensified their plan to punish those who share a traditional, Christian view on sexuality and gender!...

    So I'm having another one of those debates on homosexuality, this time the issue is the views of African-Americans towards homosexuality. I remember reading some years ago that statically African-Americans hold a more negative view of homosexuality than do whites, a point I decided to raise once the other guy decided to compare the lack of gay "marriage" to slavery or Jim Crow. He pointed out that gallup had stated otherwise, that close to 70% voted to maintain same-sex "marriage" in Nevada recently. I can't remember where I read the original study but I'm just wondering if it is still...

    The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to take up an Indiana case seeking to reverse a lower court’s ruling that allows both members of same-sex couples in the state to be listed as parents on the birth certificates of their children. The high court turned aside without comment a petition that Indiana’s attorney general, Curtis Hill, filed with the court last month. Hill had argued for the justices to reverse a January decision by the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals that affirmed a ruling by Indiana’s federal southern district court that said Indiana laws limiting who can be called...

    The world applauded the actress Ellen Page—star of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy, and films like Juno and the X-Men series—when on December 1 she announced her decision to become a man, changing her name to Elliot Page. Meanwhile, my decision to no longer identify as a gay man because I follow Christ is anathema in our culture. Why the double standard? Elliot declares that “he” has finally become his authentic self. Why doesn’t our culture celebrate my decision to be my authentic self? Is my authentic self less worthy of praise?

    On Thursday, a pastor who previously lived a homosexual lifestyle made his appeal in a unique case regarding discrimination and Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA), which protects Big Tech companies from liability for the content third-parties post on their platforms. The pastor is suing Vimeo for discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and religion after the platform banned him from publishing videos telling the stories of people who identify as ex-gay. “This is a case of grave importance because it is about whether big tech platforms can unlawfully discriminate against persons based on religion or sexual...

    The debate about same-sex marriage and LGBT identities in the Church of England is not new, but recent insults and threats are leading to an even bigger division among Anglicans. For years, the debate has been causing major rifts in the Anglican Communion, causing church leaders in emergent regions such as Africa and Latin America, to form Gafcon, a movement led by Global South Anglicans who hold to the biblical view and traditional teaching on human sexuality. Calls by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby to have a peaceful conversation, have again shown to be ineffective. The fact that the...
