Dan Cathy Loves His Enemies.

Today I read the article “Dan and Me: My Coming Out as a Friend of Dan Cathy and Chick-fil-A” by Shane Windmeyer.  This gay activist, bestselling author, and Executive Director of Campus Pride shares his perspective on a new-found friendship with Dan Cathy, a man whom he had previously considered his enemy.  He wrote that Cathy…

Orphans No Longer

All commands given by God have this in common: they are easy to say, but hard to live. In this post, I want to focus on one of these commands: to care for orphans in their distress (James 1:27). The cause of the orphan is of late getting the attention that it deserves within the…

French Protests

The French Get It.

The French see the question of legalizing gay marriage for what it really is- the endorsement of same-sex parenting.  This secular nation held one of their largest demonstrations since 1984 today- in opposition to gay marriage.  About 340,000 protesters marched at the Eiffel Tower to voice opposition to their president’s proposal to legalize gay marriage and…

Over Christmas break, my dad and I were talking about gun control (but we could have been talking about any hot-button issue).  Though we come from opposing positions, we agreed that the media and special interest groups skew much of the discussion on the subject.  It crystalized some thoughts I’ve had on blogging. Social media…

Aren’t People Born Gay?- Part 2

Keith, to whom I must grant the “Best Follow-Up Questions Award,” made these comments after reading “Aren’t People Born Gay?” You say you have come to the conclusion that people are not “born gay”, but do you even have the option of coming to the conclusion that they are? I think not. To do so would…

Listening to God in 2013

As I scroll through the blogs tagged “Christianity” tonight, many of them are promoting more scripture reading in 2013.  Of course, being the sweet and mild pastor’s wife that I am, I clearly favor copious amounts of Bible reading.  However, as I look around my immediate Christian world, I see very few of us who…
