  • Gay Pride, Augustine, and Us

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    June 30, 2015: Throughout America, "gay pride" parades took place over this past weekend in many major cities. Sadly, such parades are nothing really new. Consider Augustine's commentary about a "gay pride" parade of what he calls "effeminate" pagan priests that he witnessed early in the fifth century A.D.:

  • Fellowship and Fidelity to Scripture

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    June 25, 2015: Last week, after Tony Campolo announced that he now supports same-sex marriage (a logical progression given the long-time devaluation of biblical authority in his "Red-Letter Christian" initiative), former Christianity Today editor David Neff affirmed the same thing.

  • Is the Gospel Cool?

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    June 10, 2015: The Gospel of Jesus Christ will always be true, life-giving, refreshing, glorious, stunning. But it will never be cool.

  • Redefining Sexual Sin Won't Make a Wrong a Right

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    June 10, 2015: Tim Keller's gracious and biblically faithful article on human sexuality and the drive by some to re-interpret Scripture's teachings concerning homosexuality is important. An Evangelical "Cardinal," as it were, has spoken clearly and firmly, albeit with great civility, on the immutable teaching of the written Word of God on sexuality and sexual intimacy. This is meat to my soul.

  • A Poverty of Moral Reasoning in the Oval Office

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    May 20, 2015: At last week's "summit" event of religious leaders on poverty, President Obama made some remarks that deserve comment. In his view, Christian churches should "go to the mat" on poverty.

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    May 20, 2015: My grandfathers were men of tools. One was a plumber and builder of houses, the other an interior craftsman and designer at a department store. I have the head of the latter's hammer displayed on a shelf in my home office.

  • Religious Liberty at Risk as Supreme Court Approaches Gay Marriage Decision

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    May 19, 2015: Leslie Loftis is an attorney (J.D., University of Texas) whose primary role these days is a wife and mother of four young children (good call on the priorities, Leslie). In The Federalist, she has written one of the most thorough analyses of the potential of religious entities losing their tax-exempt status should the Supreme Court miraculously find a "right" to same-sex "marriage" in the U.S. Constitution in their ruling on the issue next month.

  • On conservative religious activism, the numbers speak for themselves

    by Rob Schwarzwalder and Pat Fagan

    May 14, 2015: In an interview with The Washington Post timed to a high-level summit on combating poverty, Harvard professor Robert Putnam makes an assertion about what he terms "organized religion," its agenda and the use of its "resources." Specifically: "The obvious fact is that over the last 30 years, most organized religion has focused on issues regarding sexual morality, such as abortion, gay marriage, all of those. I'm not saying if that's good or bad, but that's what they've been using all their resources for. This is the most obvious point in the world. It's been entirely focused on issues of homosexuality and contraception and not at all focused on issues of poverty."
