A new time for choosing on life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness

    The Heritage Foundation: America exists to defend the unalienable rights of the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” These truths have been challenged in the past 50 years in ways that Ronald Reagan could not have imagined in 1964. Unless they are protected in law and—more important—lived out in culture, constitutional self-government will be increasingly at risk. In this new time for choosing, we must return to the synthesis of the American Founding: ordered liberty based on faith and reason, natural rights and morality, limited government and civil society—with the laws of nature and nature’s God providing the standard.

Culture war, spiritual war

Has the sexual revolution come full circle?

    Summit: Since the 1960s, the predictable slide of collegiate culture toward a bacchanal of sexual permissiveness has upended the old-fashioned view that men and women fill distinct roles in relationships. For generations, women played the pursued, men the pursuers. In a culture that placed a premium on virginity, a young woman needed no excuse to refuse sex. Her default answer was “no.”

Abortion debated – Emerald City with Emily Heist Moss

    Soulation: I’ve become friends with this columnist over in Chicago. There’s a lot that separates us. Emily Heist Moss is liberal, shows up religiously for Pride Parades, and if she got pregnant right now, Emily believes she would probably have an abortion. But, there’s also a lot that unites us, we are both vocal feminists, writers, we both care about humanizing the debate across the aisle, and let’s not forget our penchant for handicrafts (cross-stitch for Emily, knitting for me).

How I became an evangelical voice for marriage quality

    First Things: Evangelicals are changing their minds on gay marriage. So argues the Log Cabin Republicans’ David Lampo in a recent op-ed in the Daily Caller. In defense of his thesis, Lampo trots out the examples of two prominent evolved evangelicals: David Blankenhorn and yours truly. The problem here is that Blankenhorn is not an Evangelical and I have not changed my mind on gay marriage. If David and I are the two best examples of an evangelical evolution, it ain’t happening.

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.
