Former homosexual warns America of “unmitigated disaster” of marriage redefinition

    Nathan Cherry: Activists pushing for the legalization of same-sex “marriage” don’t want you to hear from former homosexuals. In their world there is no such thing. Anyone claiming to be a “former homosexual” is, in their opinion, either a liar suppressing their true identity, or they never were really a homosexual. I’m not sure how someone can claim to be a homosexual without ever really being one – it doesn’t seem like something you do as a recreational past time.

Of sex and men: Why sexual restraint matters

    Family Studies: If I know anything about men, it’s that they respond best to messages that leave a little room for heroism. It’s why Playstation uses the “Greatness Awaits” campaign, and it’s why the Army’s old advertisements challenged men to “Be all that you can be.” Advertisements to men that emphasize safety and caution are probably not as effective as those that draw on adventure and sacrifice and risk-taking.

Let states, not courts, decide marriage policy

    The Washington Post: On June 26 of last year, the Supreme Court struck down Section 3 of the federal Defense of Marriage Act in United States v. Windsor, and since then lower courts have issued a string of decisions redefining marriage in the states. This month, in a widely celebrated opinion written by Judge Richard Posner, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit declared that it had “no reason to think [the governments of Indiana and Wisconsin] have a ‘reasonable basis’ for forbidding same-sex marriage.”

Is divorce equivalent to homosexuality?

    Russell Moore: This week my denomination, through its executive committee, voted to “disfellowship” a congregation in California that has acted to affirm same-sex sexual relationships. This sad but necessary move is hardly surprising, since this network of churches shares a Christian sexual ethic with all orthodox Christians of every denomination for 2,000 years. One of the arguments made by some, though, is that this is hypocritical since so many ministers in our tradition marry people who have been previously divorced.
