  • Evangelicals and casual sex

    Christian Post ^ | 05/06/2021 | John Stonestreet, Roberto Rivera
    Last August, Pew Research announced the findings of a new study with a provocative headline: “Half of Christians say casual sex is sometimes or always acceptable.” As is the case with many studies, a “Christian” for the purposes of this study meant anyone who “identified” as one, without taking into account orthodox belief or degree of commitment. Still, the results are disturbing. In particular, what the study reveals about self-identified evangelicals is especially troubling. According to Pew, less than half of evangelicals surveyed were willing to say that casual sex is never acceptable. Seventeen percent said casual sex was “rarely”...
  • Mating With Relatives? New Research Shows It Is Not a Big Deal in Nature

    We usually assume that inbreeding is bad and should be avoided under all circumstances. But new research performed by researchers at Stockholm University, published in Nature Ecology and Evolution, shows that there is little support for this assumption. The idea that animals should avoid mating with relatives has been the starting point for hundreds of scientific studies performed among many species. But it turns out the picture is more complicated. “People assume that animals should avoid mating with a relative when given the chance,” says Raïssa de Boer, researcher in zoology at Stockholm University. “But evolutionary theory has been telling...
  • LGBT Activist Urges the Government to Fight 'The Pernicious Power of Prayer'

    Lawmakers in Britain and Australia have moved to ban “conversion therapy,” supporting laws that may criminalize everyday practices common to Christian churches around the world. While LGBT activists — and most Christians — have rightly condemned the historic abuses of “conversion therapy” in the past, modern sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE) involve patient-directed talk therapy, not “shock therapy,” and the laws in Britain and Australia may criminalize preaching, counseling, and even prayer. Some activists and lawmakers in Britain have vocally demanded nothing less. One activist called for legal attempts to “deal with” the “pernicious power of prayer.” A member of...
  • ‘Consensual Incest’ Should Be Decriminalized, Advocates Say

    Consensual incest advocates are rooting for an anonymous New York parent who wants to marry their own adult child. Australian Richard Morris, who is pushing to change incest laws in about 60 countries, said he supports the legal push in Manhattan Federal Court and that such behavior between consenting adults “should not be criminalized.” He and other advocates have launched about 130 petitions, mostly on change.org, seeking to change incest laws around the world. Most have received little support.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Thursday released a report that determined 4 in 10 transgender women in seven major U.S. cities have HIV, which the agency said signaled a need to focus HIV prevention and treatment among the demographic. The study conducted in 2019 and early 2020 found that 42 percent of 1,608 transgender women across Atlanta, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle with a valid test result had HIV.... ...A total of 34 percent of participants said they had been involved in sex work...

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas vetoed a bill on Monday that would make it illegal for transgender minors to receive gender-affirming medication or surgery — a rare Republican rejection of the growing conservative effort to restrict transgender people’s health care and participation in society. The Arkansas State Legislature could override Mr. Hutchinson’s veto of the bill, known as H.B. 1570. Republicans hold large majorities in both chambers and passed the bill last month with mostly party-line votes: 70-22 in the House and 28-7 in the Senate. “I was told this week that the nation is looking at Arkansas because I...

    Jesus warned that in the last generation "many false prophets will arise and mislead many [and] because of the multiplication of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold." "Wickedness" involves a wide spectrum of secondary behaviors as shown in Romans 1:18-32 and 2 Timothy 3:1-5, but one specific category of sin is pinpointed by God throughout the Bible as the gateway to widespread apostasy that triggers His wrath: extreme sexual deviance, particularly male homosexuality. My Scripture-based argument in support of that assertion is fully detailed in my book "The Petros Prophecy: Simon Peter's Prophetic Warning About the Heresy of...

    In a major win for the LGBTQ community, Switzerland lawmakers approved the legalization of same-sex marriage last week. At the same time, the law also allowed transgender people to alter their legal gender at civil registry offices in the country and allows lesbian couples to conceive children using donated sperm, Reuters reports. Despite passing parliament, the same-sex marriage law may have to pass a national referendum in the coming year. However, activists expect a potential referendum to succeed, after a recent survey found support for marriage exceeding 80% in Switzerland. Campaign group Marriage For All posted a statement on their...

    ---SNIP--- OnlyFans, a subscription service for pornography, now has an official Pennsylvania Health Department endorsement. In other recommendations, however, the health department sounds cautious about the physical consequences of random sex in a way the left has jeered and fought for decades. “If you usually meet your sex partners online,” says the PDH, “consider taking a break from in-person dates.” Instead, the health department is asking people to use “video dates, sexting, subscription-based fan platforms, or chat rooms.”

    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...

    Biden is making sweeping promises to LGBTQ activists, proposing to carry out virtually every major proposal on their wish lists. Among them: Lifting the Trump administration’s near-total ban on military service for transgender people, barring federal contractors from anti-LGBTQ job discrimination, and creating high-level LGBTQ-rights positions at the State Department, the National Security Council and other federal agencies. Biden says his top legislative priority for LGBTQ issues is the Equality Act, passed by the House of Representatives last year but stalled in the Senate. It would extend to all 50 states the comprehensive anti-bias protections already afforded to LGBTQ people...
  • Anglican Primate Linda Nicholls Urges Government of Canada to Ban Conversion Therapy

    The Anglican Church of Canada's Primate, Linda Nicholls has written to Canada's Minister of Justice to voice her support for Bill C-6, a bill which would criminalize conversion therapy. If this should pass, a therapist, psychotherapist, counsellor or psychiatrist who agrees to help someone resist unwanted same-sex attraction would be committing a criminal act and face fines and possible jail time. At a deeper level it is a fundamental denial of free speech. So, a person who experiences same-sex attraction has no choice but to accept his or her unwanted attractions. Let me repeat: no choice. The reason for this,...

    A homophobic pastor is threatening to sue a public high school in Tennessee after his daughter was sent home for wearing an anti-gay t-shirt. Rich Penkoski, leader of extremist anti-LGBTQ hate group “Warriors for Christ,” told the Christian Post that his daughter’s First Amendment rights were violated after she was told to leave Livingston Academy in Livingston, Tenn. His daughter Brielle, who is 15, wore a t-shirt with “homosexuality is a sin” written on the front, as well as “1 Corinthians 6:9-10,” (snip) “My 15 year old was thrown out of school for the day for wearing this shirt,”...

    A second man has accused Fox News personality and former Judge Andrew Napolitano of sexual abuse, claiming the judge forced him to engage in strange BDSM sex games over the course of a number of years. Napolitano, who faces another sexual abuse lawsuit filed earlier this month, categorically denied the new allegations, calling it a smear campaign. The alleged victim, James Kruzelnick, claims in the suit filed in New Jersey state court that he met Napolitano while working as a waiter at the Mohawk House restaurant in Sparta, NJ, in 2014. During one of his visits, Napolitano allegedly followed Kruzelnick...

    California state senator and radical gay activist from San Francisco Scott Wiener introduced a bill (SB 145) that would decriminalize men having sex with young boys and no one blinked. If this passes, California parents will have no legal recourse against men who rape, grope, molest, seduce, sexually assault, or proposition their sons. No one is suggestion all gay men are predators as Wiener would have you believe, but the fact is, any man of any sexual proclivity who touches a young boy is a predator whose only place of residence should be a penitentiary where he can never touch...

    [Barf Alert] Pro-gay Catholic bishop: Trump is ‘so much anti-life’ Bishop Stowe also criticized Trump supporters, saying, it's 'almost willful ignorance' for anybody to back the president 'because of claims of being pro-life.' LEXINGTON, Kentucky, August 10, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Bishop John Stowe said President Donald Trump, the first sitting president to speak at the annual March for Life in the nation’s capital, “is so much anti-life.”  Stowe also suggested he wants to change Catholic teaching on the family to accommodate homosexuality and gender ideology.

    Gov. Tom Wolf spoke out in defense of Dr. Rachel Levine Wednesday and assailed the Bloomsburg Fair fundraising event that mocked Pennsylvania’s health secretary. Levine, a transgender woman, has been a target of slurs in recent months as she’s gained increasing visibility in the Wolf Administration’s efforts to combat the coronavirus. The governor denounced the “hate and transphobia” that has emerged in recent months. The latest controversy emerged after photos were shared from at a fundraiser held at the Bloomsburg Fair. The fundraiser, which was organized to raise money for area fire companies, included a dunk tank where a man...
