May 04 2006 By virtueonline Islam and Western Democracies - Cardinal George Pell

Although I had possessed a copy of the Koran for 30 years, I decided then to read this book for myself as a first step to adjudicating conflicting claims. And I recommend that you too read this sacred text of the Muslims, because the challenge of Islam will be with us for the remainder of our lives - at least.

April 28 2006 By virtueonline The Curious Rationale for a "Day of Silence"

1. Preachy silence is not sufficient for the school. The "silent" students will be given a platform for "sharing their reflections" verbally in a required chapel.

2. Far from being silenced, gays in our society are given every imaginable media and political platform to air their convictions. And totally neglected is the possibility that gays are silenced by their own sense of compassion for their families and by their shame, informed by conscience.

April 23 2006 By virtueonline Braver new world: Is Christianity in America a sun rising or setting?

Take a moment here for self-examination, and observe what you honestly feel about the impact of Christianity in America. Is it a sun rising or a sun setting? The answer to that question in your heart of hearts will determine your chosen pastime: keeping at it with the truth-or gardening.

I sneaked out of the café when theologian Os Guinness came to town a year ago. He said this in our seminary auditorium:

April 23 2006 By virtueonline "Gay" Subculture Left Woman Scarred from Childhood in Homosexual Home

Describing her father's homosexual lifestyle as a culture without "boundaries and principles of morality and monogamy," Stefanowicz said her upbringing was characterized by confusion and lack of affection, domestic violence and sexual abuse.

In her father's world which he made hers, she said, "transsexualism, and transient and anonymous multiple partners were common...By age ten, for example, I was exposed to a gay nude beach, a sex shop, and a gay cruising park."

April 11 2006 By virtueonline ATLANTA: Christians Sue for Right Not to Tolerate Policies

The religious right aims to overturn a broad range of common tolerance programs: diversity training that promotes acceptance of gays and lesbians, speech codes that ban harsh words against homosexuality, anti-discrimination policies that require college clubs to open their membership to all. The Rev. Rick Scarborough, a leading evangelical, frames the movement as the civil rights struggle of the 21st century.

April 10 2006 By virtueonline Apostates from Islam: The case of the Afghan convert is not unique

Some other Muslim countries have laws similar to Afghanistan's. Apart from its other depredations, in the last ten years Saudi Arabia has executed people for the crimes of apostasy, heresy, and blasphemy. The death penalty for apostates is also in the legal code in Iran, Sudan, Mauritania, and the Comoros Islands.

March 27 2006 By virtueonline Under the Scimitar of Damocles - by Andrew Bostom

John Ralph Willis, Princeton University Professor of Near Eastern Studies, has described the "apparent paradox" that jihad wars and razzias (p.343) -rationalized as struggles to liberate men from unbelief-became, through the mass enslavement intrinsic to these campaigns, "a device to deprive men of freedom." And freedom, in the Muslim conception, "being perfect slavery" to Allah, the sole (distant) hope of earthly freedom from the bondage and humiliation of slavery for the subjugated infidel-

March 23 2006 By virtueonline The curious rise of anti-religious hysteria - by Frank Furedi
