Suspicions Confirmed: Academia Shutting Out Conservative Professors | Rachel Alexander at Townhall

    Rachel Alexander at Townhall: Sociologist George Yancy asked professors if they would be more or less likely to hire someone if they were a Republican, evangelical or fundamentalist. Three-quarters said political affiliation would not affect their hiring decision. But the one-quarter that did say it would influence their decision virtually all said they would favor a Democrat over a Republican. Almost half of the sociology professors surveyed said they would look unfavorably upon evangelicals and fundamentalists trying to get a job in their department!

“Biblical Marriage Not Defined Simply As One Man, One Woman: Iowa Religious Scholars’ Op-Ed” | Huffington Post

    Huffington Post: A trio of Iowa-based religious scholars penned an op-ed in a local paper this week, reminding readers that despite popular opinion, the Bible does not simply define marriage as between one man and one woman. The joint editorial was written by Hector Avalos, Robert R. Cargill and Kenneth Atkinson and published in the Des Moines Register on Sunday. The men teach at Iowa State University, University of Iowa and University of Northern Iowa, respectively.

Catholic Bishop criticizes Boy Scouts’ membership decision

    Catholic Culture: Saying that he would “prayerfully reconsider whether a continued partnership with the BSA will be possible,” Bishop Loverde added that “it is highly disappointing to see the Boy Scouts of America succumb to external pressures and political causes at the cost of its moral integrity. Additionally, it seems clear that the result of this policy change will likely not bring harmony, but rather continuing controversy, policy fights, and discord.”

Boy Scouts: Sending up the white flag

    The Catholic Thing: Do you know, Scoutmasters, what you have done? You were the last prominent public institution left standing that retained for yourselves some small shred of that forgotten but foundational freedom, the freedom of association. It should have been repugnant to a people loving liberty that anyone would hale you before any court in the land, much less the Supreme Court, to compel you to alter your standards for membership in the Scouts – standards that have gotten fairly lax at that.

Why won’t my pastor preach against abortion? | RC Sproul, Jr.

    RC Sproul, Jr.: Here are the three reasons I hear most frequently, and two I suspect. First, I have heard from some pastors that the issue is a political one, and they think it necessary to avoid political issues. Some argue that they avoid political issues because they are divisive, others because the government forbids it. They are right on the first count, wrong on the second. Of course every truth divides.

The horrors are getting harder for abortion supporters to hide

    Ashley McQuire at Philly.com: William Wilberforce and his fellow abolitionists helped to end slavery in the British Empire largely by convincing Britons of the full humanity of the slaves and by invoking shame and disgust at their condition and treatment. Abolitionists adopted mottoes such as “Am I Not a Man and a Brother?” and used vivid imagery, including a diagram of a slave ship that showed slaves packed into a filthy, seaborne prison. Abortion abolitionists in the United States are increasingly adopting the same tactics.

“The Boy Scouts Admit Gay Kids: Does It Matter?” | EPPC

    Mary Rice Hasson at EPPC: Let’s be clear: the Boy Scouts’ decision is not a statement about the morality of homosexuality. It’s a decision to “serve every kid.” Premised on the idea that “kids are better off in Scouting,” the “voting members of the National Councilapproved a resolution removing the restriction denying membership to youth on the basis of sexual orientation alone, effective January 1, 2014.” The ban on homosexual adult leaders stands.

“The Great Societal Shift: 53% of Americans Currently Support Gay Marriage” | The Urban Twist

    The Urban Twist: Despite the legal progress the United States and other countries have made towards achieving marriage equality, adamant protesters of same-sex marriage still voice the belief that gay marriage ruins the sanctity of traditional marriage. The nonprofit organization known as the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) which was formerly known as the Alliance Defense Fund, revealed its opposition of gay marriage in a quote found on their website about the current Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) hearing of the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA): “God ordained marriage to be between one man and one woman. Unfortunately, some groups are now attempting to replace marriage with “anything goes” arrangements. This disregard for marriage and its true purpose threatens to destroy this institution, to the detriment of future generations.”
