The United States House of Representatives Bill, H.R.5, or “The Equality Act,” recently passed in the House on its way to the Senate. The bill seeks to extend protections against discrimination on the basis of sex to discrimination against what they call “sexual orientation and gender identity.” In the process, the text of the bill names the name that shall …
The ancient Balaam knew the only way to oppose Israel was to destroy her relationship with God. Therefore, he suggested a substitute love offensive. His counsel still destroys the people of God today.
An attractive writer’s entertaining prose in the New York Times only thinly masks the harsh reality of his hopelessness. The stark confessions of our culture’s new kind of hero.

It looked as though I would become an outlaw in California. AB 2943, labeled it fraud, and so a crime, to sell something telling a man with same-sex attraction that he didn’t have to be gay.
