The Kiss of Death

After pushback from the LGBTQ community the Hallmark Channel has apologized and vowed to reinstate a handful of previously removed LGBTQ-friendly wedding ads on its platform, including a lesbian couple kissing.  Hallmark’s leaders initially decided to remove the ads after the conservative activist group One Million Moms, which represents a sizable chunk of the network’s target demographic, launched a petition denouncing the commercials as inappropriate for a family-friendly channel because of its promotion of homosexuality.  Ironically, the Hallmark Channel styles itself as “The Heart of Christmas” while promoting a lifestyle that is offensive to Christianity. It is a shame to…

Protected Class

I was reading a Wikipedia biography of Pat Robertson that contained a section on Controversies and Criticisms, listing all manner of so-called controversial topics and criticisms, (are these criticisms of Robertson or subjects of his critique). The tone of this section is highly negative of Robertson, as it promotes a biased premise seated in political…

Hypocrisy Redefined

I noticed an article with an astonishing title/accusation against the Vice President, charging he and his wife of moral hypocrisy.  I looked for the source and noted that it was from a discredited fascist source.  However, what was the basis for this accusation?  The writer stated that Mrs. Pence taught art at a private christian school that did not condone sexual perversion and required each student to agree to follow biblical teaching and principles for marriage.  The author’s conclusion followed that working for such an institution was morally contrary to LGBTQ beliefs, and thus morally hypocritical. If one does not…

Sodomite Revenge

The wicked shaming of Karen Pence for teaching art part-time at a Christian school that adheres to biblically rooted views of marriage arises directly from the Supreme Court’s equally wicked decision to legalize same-sex marriage in Obergefell vs. Hodges.  As pointed out in William McGurn’s recent Wall Street Journal article, when Obergefell was decided it was sold as live-and-let-live.  But dissenting justice Alito predicted a perilous future for those who continued to hold a traditional view of marriage that being only between a man and a women.  He said – “I assume that those who cling to old beliefs will…

Truth or Consequences

I have seen and heard some ridiculous suggestions coming from Hollywood, major media corporations, and even politicians.  These deceitful organizations assert and portray Christians and Churches as the most dangerous, aggressive, intolerant, militant, bigots in all the earth.  This is not true today, nor down through history.  Even though there have been evil people who claimed and/or masqueraded as christian at one time or another, they almost always were shown to have been frauds, as to any actual expression of faith in Jesus Christ.  Hitler is an example, but no reasonable and honest person would maintain that he was a…

Hate Speech

During an Anti-Defamation League event on Monday, Apple CEO Tim Cook advocated for censorship of “those who push hate [and] division” across his company’s digital platforms.  He advocated censoring viewpoints that, in his opinion, are  pushing “hate, division, and violence.” The problem with this censorship policy is the question of who is going to determine what is hateful or violent?  Free speech by its very nature will produce some division among those with differing viewpoints although certainly it should be done with grace and kindness.  One area prominently mentioned in his speech is the LGBTQ community.  A homosexual himself, this…

The Nashville Statement

Recently certain Evangelical Leaders from the “Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood” released a statement on sexuality.  Called the “Nashville Statement” it affirmed the biblical teaching on marriage and sexual immorality.  It included the following positions:   1.  God has designed marriage to be a convenantal, sexual, procreative, lifelong union of one man and one women, as

Outstanding Hypocrisy

Chicago’s Governor announced recently that his city’s law enforcement officers would not enforce federal Immigration laws.  Other cities in California had previously refused to recognize federal Immigration law, proclaiming themselves cities of refuge.  This rebellion has a historical precedent, in Civil war times.  The southern States believed the constitution left matters that were not specifically addressed in the Constitution to the states.  When compelled to follow certain federal law, considered unauthorized specifically by the constitution, South Carolina seceded…

Wonders of Marriage

“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’?  So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” (Matthew: 19: 4:6). What an amazing revelation Jesus gives us in this answer to the religious leaders of his day.  The concept of male and female cannot be explained in evolution theory, it is so fundamental, so marvelous in…

Wisdom in Reply

A response to some proclaimed Atheists is ill-advised, particularly if they are merely trolling for replies, and considering the substance of their arguments and the scriptures.  As long as they have breath, there is still hope that God in His mercy will open them to the truth of Yeshua, Messiah through whatever means He may deem appropriate and best. They typically use…
