August 18 2017 By dvirtue Why do Christians hesitate to rise up on anti-Christian persecution?

On Tuesday, the U.S. State Department released the first International Religious Freedom Report in the era of President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. It highlighted persecution and hatred against scores of religious minorities around the world, including Christians.

The report prompted me to reflect anew on why Christians sometimes seem hesitant to raise their voices about such atrocities.

The driver of the car who drove his car into a crowd of protesters, killing one of them, was most recognisable face: a 20-year-old from Ohio, James Alex Fields Jr. He has been charged with second-degree murder and malicious wounding.

August 17 2017 By dvirtue Transgenderism: Another Take

There appears to be very little scientific data, or evidence of brain differences among transgender people, to yet support a biological cause for transgenderism, known now as gender dysphoria. This recently adopted name, dysphoria, deletes the word "Disorder," and reflects the newly changed view noted in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, that gender dysphoria is not a mental illness. If a man thinks he's a tree, he is ill.

August 13 2017 By dvirtue Convert Nation

Cohen was the son of a cantor, or worship leader, at a Philadelphia synagogue. His father wasn't comfortable with him marrying someone who wasn't Jewish. At first, Cohen didn't want to push his faith on his fiancee, but Jane really loved Jewish rituals like lighting Shabbat candles and eating with family on Friday nights. She decided to convert, taking the name Sarah.

August 13 2017 By dvirtue Evangelicals, Trump and the politics of redemption

I say this recognizing that the last election involved difficult choices upon which reasonable and well-intentioned people disagreed. I understand the argument of those who believed that Mr. Trump was the better of two bad options, whose policies would do less damage to the country than Hillary Clinton's.

August 10 2017 By dvirtue "They Became Fools"

And the Bible makes it clear that this is exactly what happens to those who embrace sin and evil, all the while rejecting God. Their whole person grows more and more dark, unstable, and radically bent out of shape. The entire sexual revolution is one huge example of this very thing.

July 31 2017 By dvirtue What Ever Happened to the New Atheists

Harris is a liberal, straight and true, but drew the ire of Reza Aslan for refusing to except Islam from his broad critique of religion. "Islam is not a religion of peace," Harris often says. In fact, he thinks it's just the opposite. For that, everyone from Glen Greenwald to Ben Affleck has cast him as an Islamophobe and a bigot. That means that three of the much-acclaimed "Four Horsemen" of New Atheism have been turfed from the left for extending their critique of religion to Islam.

July 26 2017 By dvirtue The Religious Left's Abortion Gospel

Many might wonder how the often physically brutal extermination of unborn life qualifies as compassion for Parker, yet would presumably make little impression upon his inverted morality and belief in the abortion gospel. As CAP Senior Fellow Jocelyn Frye noted in introducing Parker, he flaunts obscene awards bearing the names of the racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger and the murdered late-term abortionist George Tiller (the "Killer").

July 26 2017 By dvirtue Anglican leader in Jamaica breaks ranks by calling for legalisation of sodomy

In a written submission to the committee examining the Sexual Offences Act and related laws in which he emphasised that his views were personal, Gregory likened his position to that of the executed German Christian leader Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who had argued that the aim of the Church is not 'that the authorities make Christian policies, Christian laws and so on, but that they be proper authorities in the sense of their special commission'.
