In an article published by LifeSiteNews Archbishop-elect of Glasgow Philip Tartaglia took the position “that society has been silent when it comes to the health risks and dangers of the homosexual lifestyle.” In defending the Archbishop the director of the Scottish Catholic Media Office, Peter Kearney, stated that there is “something of a conspiracy of silence around the vast array of medical evidence that exists to suggest that same-sex behavior is hazardous, is harmful, and is dangerous. And the wider question really is as a society why don’t we debate that? Why don’t we have that discussion in the same way, for example, that we’ve been happy to look at how smoking, how alcohol, how over-eating, how drug addiction can cause harms to people’s health?”

Townhall columnist Michael Brown has pointed out CA State Senator Ted Lieu’s strange motives using his own words. Brown wrote “As of today, it is legal in California to give hormone blockers to an 11 year-old boy in order to delay the onset of puberty, but it could soon be illegal for a 17 year-old with unwanted same-sex attractions to receive professional counseling, even with parental consent. Now, California Senator Ted Lieu, has removed any doubt as to why he introduced Senate Bill 1172: ‘The attack on parental rights is exactly the whole point of the bill because we don’t want to let parents harm their children.’ This is an absolute outrage, and every parent in California needs to contact their senators and urge them to vote against this ridiculous and wrong-headed bill.” Link to Michael Brown’s article.

Christianity Today published an article describing the controversial statements by Peter Kearney, the director of the Scottish Catholic Media Office. About a week ago Archbishop of Glasgow Philip Tartaglia stated in a forum that evidence linked gay sex with early death rates and “suggested that the early 2011 death of Labour MP David Cairns could be linked to his homosexuality.” Tartaglia later apologized for suggesting Cairn’s death was linked to his homosexuality. Amidst a barrage of criticism Kearney boldly stated that society was not taking a “compassionate” response by choosing to ignore the “complex infections, diseases and illnesses that are caused” by gay sex.

Ex-gay Chris Stump advises replacing bad habits with worship

Excerpt from Chris Stump’s article: “It was never enough for me to give up the bad habits. I had to give them up and replace them with something better. You see, those habits served as fleshly gods. When I was anxious, stressed, bored, or depressed I’d run to them. They were the things that sustained me. So taking them away was never enough. Because I would still have those stressful, fearful, or depressing times. I had to give those up and seek the one who actually could bring healing, growth, and freedom.”

“Worship isn’t just praying and journaling. It’s the time when we allow Christ into the very depths of our souls. (more…)

The chair of Mark Regnerus’s dissertation committee defends his study on same-sex parenting

Christian Smith, Ph.D. has referred to the attacking criticism of Mark Regnerus’s study as a “witch hunt” and “inquisition.” The Regnerus study found that “adult children of parents who had same-sex romantic relationships, including same-sex couples as parents, have more emotional and social problems than do adult children of heterosexual parents with intact marriages.” For coming to a conclusion that does not support the progressive status quo, “Regnerus has been attacked by sociologists all around the country, including some from his own department. He has been vilified by journalists who obviously (based on what they write) understand little about social-science research. And the journal in which Regnerus published his article has been the target of a pressure campaign.”

Smith, who says he is not a conservative, says: “Those who are attacking Regnerus cannot admit their true political motives, so their strategy has been to discredit him for conducting ‘bad science.’ That is devious. (more…)

MaryAnn’s testimony

“Throughout those years living a homosexual lifestyle, I meet and knew Christians, some were family members and friends of my family members, who I am sure meant well but did not express the love of Christ to me as I know it now. Instead they shared a god who was disgusted with me, who saw me as an abomination, who condemned me to hell, who hated me and that would not bless me because of my homosexual lifestyle. I thought to myself, I don’t want to know this God and if all Christians are like this, I don’t ever want to be a Christian. It just drew me away from this god they wanted me to know” To read how this women become a Christian and ex-gay go to

Why No Denomination Will Survive the Homosexuality Crisis

August 25, 2012 By: Tom Coy Category: Religious Perspective

July 13, 2012

In an article published by The Gospel Coalition Kevin DeYoung argues that the division over homosexuality within church denominations is irreconcilable. The article concludes: “So my plea is for these denominations to make a definitive stand. Make it right, left, or center, but make one and make it clearly. Insist that member churches and pastors hold to this position. And then graciously open a big door for any pastor or church who cannot live in this theological space to exit with their dignity, their time, and their property. Because sometimes the best way to preserve unity is to admit that we don’t have it.”

NEA’s Ex-Gay Educator’s Caucus responds to “What is an ex-gay?”

June 30, 2012

The latest post on the NEA’s Ex-Gay Educator’s Caucus website gives examples of individual ex-gays and studies confirming the existence of ex-gays. Liberal leaders of organizations like the National Education Association still do not want to acknowledge the existence of ex-gays. [editor’s note: This refusal to acknowledge the existence of ex-gays is somewhat similar to extremists who deny the holocaust or oppose the existence of Israel] The article argues that “Success rates for changing sexual orientation range from 30-70%, which is about the same as for correcting depression, substance abuse, and eating disorders.”
