Sexual Orientation Doesn’t Mean Anything

"Sexual orientation."
"Gender identity."
What do these terms even mean? Such opaque rhetoric is a huge problem when it comes to the law, which requires clarity.

Sexual orientation laws backed by substantial penalties, not to mention potential for publicly shaming violators, require some form of objective clarity.

Senate Dems likely to block GOP bill curbing late abortions

Two days before Pope Francis is scheduled to address a joint session of Congress, the Senate failed to gain the 60 votes necessary to move ahead with the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortion after 20 weeks. House Republicans passed the bill in May, but the vote for cloture in the Senate failed 54-42. Just three Democrats (Manchin, Donnelly, Casey) joined all but two Republicans (Collins, Kirk) in support of the measure.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats seem certain to block Republican legislation banning most late-term abortions in a Senate showdown with plenty of political significance but little suspense. Though the GOP controls the Senate,…

House votes to defund Planned Parenthood, but will that help avert a shutdown?

UPDATE: Congress passed two pieces of pro-life legislation today. However, the bills are unlikely to become law. Senate Democrats will likely filibuster, and President Obama has threatened to veto any legislation curtailing what he views as an unlimited right to abortion.

The measures aren't expected to get past the Senate, and if they do, most certainly will be vetoed by the president.

Ahead of Planned Parenthood Battle, House to Vote on Abortion Bills

Be watchful today as the U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on two pro-life bills, one putting a one-year moratorium on Planned Parenthood funding and one that increases penalties on doctors who fail to abide by the Born Alive Act. Pray for wisdom for your Representative.

The House has two votes this week aimed at abortion, but that may not be enough for members looking for a continuing resolution showdown.

In NYC, home to America's largest black population, more black babies are aborted than are born. Why isn't this central in the national conversations about race and abortion?

In The Wall Street Journal, Jason Riley asks: Why isn’t it more a matter of concern to the left that so many black babies aren’t brought into the world?

How troubled Disney star Dean Jones, who just died at 84, found ‘the peace of Christ’

We are saddened to learn that Dean Jones has died at the age of 84. The actor who starred in many beloved films, including That Darn Cat, Herbie the Love Bug, The Million Dollar Duck, and The Ugly Dachshund, also played Chuck Colson in the film version of Born Again. A devout Christian who adopted many foster children and founded the Christian Rescue Fund, Jones said of his conversion experience, "The peace of Christ rolled over me like an ocean wave and I've never been the same." Now Jones has entered the presence of Christ for all eternity!

"It was empty," the star said of Hollywood fame. "Really empty."

John Piper’s Prayer at Planned Parenthood

Thank God for John Piper, one of America's most influential pastors and theologians who didn't hesitate to offer his voice along with tens of thousands of Americans gathered outside Planned Parenthood facilities around the nation Saturday to protest the organization's evil actions and pray for justice for the unborn. This was his prayer for those gathered in St. Paul, Minnesota:

There is No Pro-Life Case For Planned Parenthood

Have you ever heard it argued, "Services like those Planned Parenthood provides actually decrease the demand for abortion?" This column by NYT columnist Ross Douthat blows a hole in that argument, and also points out that whatever goods Planned Parenthood might provide do not require or make amends for their grotesque abortion services.

Why a popular argument for funding the nation’s largest abortion purveyor doesn’t hold up.

Update: U.S. Senate fails to reach the 60-vote threshold required to move from debate to vote on the bill to defund Planned Parenthood and reallocate federal funds to community health centers that provide women's healthcare but do not perform abortions. The effort was effectively filibustered by Senate Democrats, with an assist from Republican Mark Kirk (IL). Democrats Manchin (WV) and Donnelly (IN) voted with a majority of Republicans for the measure.

08/03/2015

Today, the U.S. Senate is deliberating whether or not to redirect funding away from Planned Parenthood and towards providers of women's health services who do not abort unborn children or traffic infant body parts. Will you join with the thousands of pro-life Christians committed to praying for a new, just public policy?

The Equality Act: Bad Policy that Poses Great Harms

Have you heard about The Equality Act? It is a new federal law introduced in Congress that would give sexual orientation and gender identity the same level of legal protection as race, sex, and religion. Here's more you need to know: http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2015/07/15381/

If passed, the Equality Act would empower the government to discriminate against those who do not accept a sexually permissive understanding of human nature that denies sexual complementarity.

Following videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted fetal body parts, Republicans are working to strip the group of funding

07/14/2015

After today's news about Planned Parenthood selling the remains of aborted children re-read the Manhattan Declaration. The section on the sanctity of human life concludes:

"Our concern is not confined to our own nation. Around the globe, we are witnessing cases of genocide and “ethnic cleansing,” the failure to assist those who are suffering as innocent victims of war, the neglect and abuse of children, the exploitation of vulnerable laborers, the sexual trafficking of girls and young women, the abandonment of the aged, racial oppression and discrimination, the persecution of believers of all faiths, and the failure to take steps necessary to halt the spread of preventable diseases like AIDS. We see these travesties as flowing from the same loss of the sense of the dignity of the human person and the sanctity of human life that drives the abortion industry and the movements for assisted suicide, euthanasia, and human cloning for biomedical research. And so ours is, as it must be, a truly consistent ethic of love and life for all humans in all circumstances."

Amen?

The Reardon Option or the Chicago Veto?

After Obergefell, Antiochian Orthodox priest Rev. Patrick Henry Reardon says he can no longer serve as an agent of state government by signing civil marriage licenses. An early Manhattan Declaration signer, Reardon told the Chicago Tribune, “The strange situation in the United States is clergymen not only act in the name of the church, they also act in the name of the state,” said Reardon, the pastor of All Saints Antiochian Orthodox Church in Chicago’s Irving Park community. “The clergymen wear two hats. I’m making a political statement in this sense: I’m accusing the state of usurping the role of God. What I’m saying is, ‘I don’t agree with you and I’m going to change the way I do things. I will not act in your name. … I will not render unto Caesar that which belongs to God.'"

In a previous posting on the atrocious Obergefell ruling of the Supreme Court, I closed with an outline of some possible options available to us. The first was the Reardon Option, which I named in ...

The courts have ruled, but the fight for marriage is only beginning. In this interview about their new book, Walker and Teetsel explain why the fight is so important, and what faithfulness looks like in the midst of the battle.

Christians must continue to witness to the truth of marriage as the social, economic, and personal costs of its collapse begin to mount.
