Marriage or savagery: Lithuania debates the family

| May 2, 2012

This is an good piece from Mercatornet’s Family Edge: Some of the most interesting debates on family policies are taking place in the European countries of the former Soviet bloc. In 2008, Lithuania passed legislation to define “family” as the married union of a man and a woman together with their children, adopted or biological. […]

Parenthood is not just a private project

| April 28, 2012

This is a thoroughly thought-provoking article from Jennifer Roback-Morse. I realize this is a touchy subject even among Christians (Does the state have any legitimate role in marriage, or is marriage essentially a private covenant between individuals and God?). However, I think the author makes a compelling case for the necessity of marriage and the […]

“Women, Stop Submitting to Men”

| December 6, 2011

This is an excellent piece that digs down to the fundamentals. We get a lot of funny comments from readers who think we believe women are inferior, must kowtow to all men, should remain uneducated, etc., etc., ad nauseum. Here’s the plain truth, demonstrating that the shoe is (sadly) on the other foot in our […]

Gender Equality Takes Center Stage

| October 18, 2011

The issue of gender equality has come to center-stage in British public thanks to the debate on male-preference primogeniture. American readers may be unfamiliar with the term ‘male-primogeniture’ so a brief word of explanation may be helpful. The rules of succession for the British thrown are governed by a system in which firstborn sons take […]

The end of tolerance

| October 7, 2011

Another excellent piece from Mercatornet: The illusion that moral diversity is a viable social strategy is at its last gasp…. [F]or about sixty or so years, Western culture has been engaged in a protracted rebellion against whole swathes of public ethics. For whatever reason, our culture has effectively disdained to engage in moral debate on […]

Thrown Over the Fence — Infanticide, Canadian Style

| October 3, 2011

Albert Mohler highlights a chilling case from Canada: Mark Steyn hit the nail on the head when he accused a Canadian appeals court of allowing for a “fourth-trimester abortion” — that’s right, the killing of a baby that is already born….As CBC News reported, the woman was given a three-year suspended sentence and will spend […]

Monogamy on the ropes?

| September 30, 2011

From Jon Mitchell at Mercatornet: Secret infidelity within marriage is dishonest. On that, there is widespread agreement. But the prevailing question in our culture today seems to be whether monogamy itself is dishonest about human desire and personal fulfilment. To think of monogamy as dishonest is to miss the point. Monogamy is in fact an […]

Sauntering beyond good and evil

| August 30, 2011

Michael Cook has written an excellent post over at Mercatornet, responding to what results when we reject a Transcendent Creator/Lawgiver: “The religious fundamentalists are correct: without God, there is no morality. But they are incorrect, I still believe, about there being a God. Hence, I believe, there is no morality.” This startling syllogism comes from […]

The Moral of the Story…Is There One?

| August 27, 2011

There’s a thoughtful, cogent piece on so-called “narrative ethics” by Sarah Flashing over at The Center for Women of Faith in Culture: “Christianity isn’t a list of rules, it’s a relationship” is how the cliché goes and I’ve never been very fond of it. While I agree that Christianity is about the transformative power of […]

CitizenLink Report: Resisting Efforts to Blur Male and Female

| July 9, 2011

From Citizen Link: Have you heard about the recent report from Sweden about the staff of a preschool no longer using pronouns like “he” or “she” when referring to students? It’s another example of what happens when marriage is redefined to include same-sex couples. The preschool’s approach to gender is a reflection of Sweden’s national […]

‘Slutwalk’ and the Negation of Female Sexuality

| June 21, 2011

I was recently asked to cover an event in London known as the ‘Slutwalk.’ The event, which features scores of women walking down the street dressed as ‘sluts,’ started in Toronto on April 3. Since then, according to the Wikipedia article about it, the movement has spread to other towns throughout the US, Canada, Australia, […]

The essential public purpose of marriage

| June 3, 2011

While we do not believe that states (or the people) have the right to define inalienable rights (those are given by our Creator and cannot be redefined by man), this is a very good article demonstrating that marriage is not about two people who want to be in some kind of “relationship” but about parenting […]

Feminism Q&A

| November 30, 2010

The following article was written in response to several questions I received by email from a young lady who is currently attending college. I wrote about feminism numerous times, and, however I look at it, the conclusion that is reached is always the same: feminism is not what it claims to be.

Semantics Don’t Change Truth: The social motivations behind new definitions

| November 22, 2010

Elizabeth Mitchell over at has written an excellent piece about how modern scientists simply change definitions in order to make something acceptable which was once unthinkable: The FDA’s recent controversial approval of “ulipristal acetate—an emergency contraceptive effective for up to 5 days” after exposure—made headline news in the September issue of Ob.Gyn. News.1 Like […]
