| July 4, 2017

The future of the First Amendment rests on the freedom to teach the centrality of chaste family life. We will not win I if we are ambivalent or shy. Read the rest here.

Desiring God: Gospel Hope for Self-Haters

| May 5, 2017

We all know really godly women who for example in God’s providence either never married or they married where unable to have children. They have always had to go through a process of grappling with that, grappling with identity, grappling with what it means to be a woman. Grappling with how does one find one’s […]

| February 8, 2017

If you are a blood-bought child of Christ, you must live in the fear of God when sexual sins lay crouching at the door. Only those who truly fear God will conquer such temptations. There are times to be heartbroken. The release of another Fifty Shades film is definitely such a time. The tidal wave […]

Dr. Axe – 5 Real Benefits of Kissing: Put Smooching on Your To-Do List!

| February 1, 2016

Editor’s note: We don’t believe the word “partner” is synonymous with “spouse” but, you get the picture. Pucker up! Happy February! Eating right, getting enough exercise, meditating, disconnecting from your smartphone— they’re all great ways to keep happy and healthy. But there’s an important one you might be overlooking. Did you know that kissing with […]

The Daily Signal: How the Left has Sabotaged Marriage and Family

| November 19, 2015

On June 26, 2015, four of the Supreme Court’s liberals joined Justice Anthony Kennedy in discovering a new right to same-sex marriage in the U.S. Constitution, one thereby imposed upon all 50 states. In response, of course, liberals were jubilant. Their leader, the one who promised to fundamentally transform America, responded by literally illuminating the […]

Mercatornet: Fighting Back for Love and Fidelity

| November 9, 2015

I was in college at Princeton at the time of the founding of the first Anscombe Society, and thought what they were doing was probably a pretty good thing, but I didn’t really understand the need for it. I bought into plenty of the lies of the hook up culture. Didn’t most people in the […]

Mercatornet: To Whom Do Children Belong?

| October 14, 2015

How Same-Sex Marriage Threatens Parental Rights A crucial aspect of liberty is respect for subsidiarity—in particular, recognition that the family, based on marriage, is a pre-political community with natural and original authority over its internal affairs, especially the education and upbringing of children. Redefining marriage in law to include same-sex couples undermines the principled basis for […]

Mercatornet: Celibate mothers carry forward the sexual revolution

| October 13, 2015

[Editor’s note: Feminist doctrine is predicated upon fear which can create a female-only comfort zone, which, ironically, isn’t really all that comfortable. No one can live without love. The self imposed solitary confinement is sustained by concessions and substitutions. Live with a man? Fine, but don’t marry him.  Lesbianism? that’s okay. Make children out of your pets? That’s okay. Got […]

To All the Girls Who Didn’t Say No

| October 12, 2015

One of the most profound days of my life was the day I told my mom and dad I was pregnant. I wasn’t married. I had just moved home and out of the apartment I shared with my boyfriend. I was beginning my first semester at a technical college trying to make the most of […]

AiG: Is Polygamy Next?

| October 2, 2015

For years I’ve been saying that once you open the door to redefine marriage, where do you stop? Well, that’s already starting to happen since the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) decision to legalize gay “marriage” in June. After all, if “love wins,” as gay “marriage” activists say, then by this line of […]

Emotional Maturity as a Young Woman with an Unbelieving Family

| October 1, 2015

By Mrs. S. B. H. E., Originally published here, Aug. 8, 2005 Purity is a concept that is intriguingly beautiful. When thinking of purity, a pure, white lamb comes to mind–one with no blemishes, flecks of dirt, or streaks of mud. While this concept so readily comes to mind, it does not as readily spring […]

BELINDA BROWN: There’s nothing pro-women about telling girls who can’t remember the night before to cry rape

| September 26, 2015

Loss of memory due to extreme drunkenness should be no bar to making a complaint, argued Ms Saunders. ‘We would encourage anyone who has thought they might have been raped and weren’t capable of consenting to go to the police,’ she said. The hardline feminist lobby will no doubt be cheering her comments to the […]

Family Edge: Do Women Need To Have Periods?

| September 21, 2015

Using birth control to eliminate menstruation isn’t unsafe, even if some worry it’s “unnatural.” That, readers, is how a recent opinion piece in The Atlantic started, and obviously I was curious to know where this was going. Turns out that more women are keen to use birth control not only to prevent pregnancy, but as a long-term way […]

Holmes: How to Handle Your Spouse’s Sexual Past

| September 14, 2015

Long before I was even considering marriage, a Titus 2 woman shared with me the pain of confessing her sexual history to her future husband. “It was hard,” she told me. “We both cried. We both repented. It made us a stronger couple.” I remember being grateful for her openness with me, but also feeling […]

Family Edge: “You Can’t Say That!” Feminists Enraged at Rape Victim

| September 10, 2015

A 1980s rock singer claims responsibility for being sexually assaulted, and feminists are furious. Perhaps rock stars and feminists have never been very comfortable with each other, but if they had, a beautiful alliance took a hard blow last week when Chrissie Hynde, who sang with the 1980s British rock group The Pretenders, committed the […]
