May 07 2017 By dvirtue Civilisation sleeps while a Christian Holocaust takes shape

But the world slept like Rip Van Winkle, blinkered by the disbelief that the most cultured and educated elite could stoop to the most barbaric behaviour known to mankind. You could count the Davids who dared to challenge the Goliath of the Third Reich on the fingers of one hand. It was slingshots against Panzers and the Luftwaffe. It was Lutheran pastors Niemöller and Bonhöeffer against Hitler and Göring.

May 06 2017 By dvirtue Trump's Executive Order On Religious Liberty Is A Big Disappointment

When a draft of the religious freedom executive order leaked to the press earlier this year, it looked like the administration might provide comprehensive relief, not only protecting churches but Americans who sincerely operate on faith-based principles. The kind of people who lose their businesses when unelected authoritarians who sit on so-called Civil Rights Commissions persecute Americans for thought crimes.

May 02 2017 By dvirtue Pope Must Resist Surrendering to Radical Islam

Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said in a statement that the Pope and the imam had 'mainly addressed the common challenges faced by the authorities and faithful of the major religions of the world.' The Pope presented the Grand Sheikh with a copy of his encyclical, Laudato Si, on climate change and economic inequality. Pope Francis did not publicly mention jihad, or violence in the name of Islam, or freedom of religion, or human rights for Christians in Egypt.

May 01 2017 By dvirtue UMC Court Rules Against Lesbian Bishop

This binding ruling clarifies several matters in United Methodist church law: Because of church standards only recognizing monogamous, heterosexual marriage and disapproving of sexual relations outside of it (Paragraphs 161B, 161F, 310.2d, and 2702.1b of the UMC's governing Book of Discipline), which UMC clergy must vow to uphold, any "partnered homosexual ...

April 30 2017 By dvirtue There Will Be No Religious Left

The first and perhaps most significant reason for skepticism is that there are far fewer religious liberals today than there were a generation ago. Nearly four in 10 (38 percent) liberals are religiously unaffiliated today, more than double the percentage of the 1990s, according to data from the General Social Survey. In part, the liberal mass migration away from religion was a reaction to the rise of the Christian right.

April 20 2017 By dvirtue Why Are So Many Lesbians Getting Pregnant?

Premise A: Lesbians are sexually attracted to women only.
Premise B: Women cannot impregnate women.
Conclusion: Lesbians have higher pregnancy rates than non-lesbian women.
It's contrary to all reason, but it's true. Lesbians have significantly higher pregnancy rates than their heterosexual peers. It's also true for teen gay males. They are substantially more likely to impregnate their sexual partners than are heterosexual males.

April 06 2017 By dvirtue Trans Sanity: Perversion, Confusion and a Depraved Mind

While the verse therefore primarily applies to ancient Israel, I think we can take a generic application for today as well. Certainly we see everywhere – primarily at the hands of the radical secular left – confusion, madness and blindness.

And it is a clear case of Isaiah 5:20: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” The Apostle Paul tells us similar things in Romans 1:18-32.

"We have the track record to prove that for 30 years, what we have been doing has been healing and NOT demeaning or hateful or whatever other spin you want to put on it," Foster added.

Vimeo reportedly told Foster in December to remove "any and all videos of this sort" from his account, which Foster has said is "pure religious bigotry and censorship," given that his ministry offers testimonies of people who identify as formerly gay.
