July 28 2006 By virtueonline The Clash of Worldviews: Defending the Truth

I will be hitting upon this throughout this talk: Remember always the balance between the two great commissions-to make disciples, baptize them, teach them all that I have taught you, draw people into the faith, but at the same time, remember that the culture is to be reclaimed.

July 18 2006 By virtueonline LONDON: 'The day is coming when British Muslims form a state within a state'

"It's confirmation of what they believe to be a familiar pattern: if spokesmen for British Muslims threaten what they call 'adverse consequences' - violence to the rest of us - then the British Government will cave in. I think it is a very dangerous precedent."

June 04 2006 By virtueonline Same-Sex Marriage: Hijacking the Civil Rights Legacy

As an exercise in marketing and merchandising, this strategy is the most brilliant playing of the race card in recent memory. Not since the "poverty pimps" of 35 years ago, who leveraged the guilt and sense of fair play of the American public to hustle affirmative action set-asides, have we witnessed so brazen a misuse of African-American history for partisan purposes.
