Wining Back the Culture

July 15, 2015

My article “A Simple Plan for Winning Back the Culture After the Same-Sex Marriage Decision: Envisioning a positive future after the Obergefell case,” was published on line by Aleteia, July 14, 2015

The following is a brief summary of the five initiatives that I think could make a difference. I hope my readers will download the entire piece, send their comments, share with me what they are already doing, and consider how they could support some of these initiatives.


Now that the Supreme Court has ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that no state may deny a marriage license to two members of the same sex, those who have been fighting in defense of natural marriage are asking, “Where do we go from here?”

I offer some suggestions:

1. First, it is necessary to confront the Sexual Revolutionaries and their promotion of Utilitarian ethics…
2. Freedom of religion and freedom of speech must be defended…
3. Prayer, fasting, repentance, and reparation. Individually and in our churches, we need to pray for people with same-sex attraction (SSA) and gender identity disorder (GID), for their children, and their parents….
4. Support groups. In spite of the fact that gay activists insist that they don’t need therapy, we must be there for those who want help…
5. We need to know and speak the truth about SSA and GID…

Love and responsibility

July 8, 2015



In the last thirty years, advocates for a revolution in sexual ethics and practice have mounted a frontal assault on traditional morality. These Sexual Revolutionaries have presented themselves as promoters of pleasure and freedom, working to liberate the world from the bondage of sexual restraint. Their activism has lead to the removal of legal restrictions on sexual behavior, popularization of what a generation ago would have deemed pornography, and a shattering of social norms. In today’s media-driven culture the defenders of traditional sexual morality face derision and contempt. The powerful entertainment industry delights in breaking down barriers and portraying sexual rebels as heroes persecuted by neurotic, hypocritical bigots. Journalists treat Sexual Revolutionaries as victim/heroes fighting for freedom against oppressive discrimination. Read more…

The “Selma Moment”

June 2, 2015

On the program MediaBuzz (April 5), there were rare moments of honesty. One of the panel of members of the media admitted that while 50 percent of the public considered themselves faithful Christians, only 10 percent of those working in newsrooms would classify themselves as such. The panelists all but admitted that they just didn’t understand Christians. The ten percent who are believers probably aren’t always candid about their feelings. Even when big names admit to religious motivations, they are treated with skepticism. When Bill O’Reilly said that he was inspired by the Holy Spirt to write Killing Jesus, his interviewer Nora O’Donnell of 60 Minutes was incredulous. She asked him if he thought he was “the chosen one.” Ms. O’Donnell is undoubtedly unaware that average Christians often are convinced that they are inspired by the Holy Spirit to take up a particular work.

LGBT Therapy Ban

Suppose parents were informed that their child has a serious condition, one for which the recommended treatment included: a lifetime regime of powerful drugs which could cause serious, even life threatening, side effects; mutilating surgeries, which leave scars and compromise urinary track function; total loss of the ability to procreate; and partial or complete loss of genital function and feeling. Even with this radical treatment, their child would be at high risk for depression, other psychological disorders, suicide, HIV infection, and a shortened life span. In addition, their child would probably have to deceive others, including intimate partners, about the nature of the condition. Should these parents be allowed to seek a second opinion? President Obama and his advisor Valerie Jarret say, “No.” Read more…

Wedding Artists’ Rights

Can a for-profit business or an individual employed by a for-profit business make moral judgments? Yes, if they are judging their own actions. They have a right not to be forced to use their talents and skills to create something that they believe violates their sincerely held beliefs.
Suppose a customer comes into a bakery and asks for a cake in the shape of male private parts (I actually heard about such a thing), a baker would have every right to say, “I won’t do that,” and it wouldn’t matter if the client were gay or straight. Suppose a client were to come to a photographer and ask to pose naked or in pornographic positions. The photographer would have a right to say “I won’t do that,” and it wouldn’t matter if the client were gay or straight. Read more…

No to Gender

March 6, 2015

The culture war is a war of words and those who defend reality need to choose their words carefully. The word gender has been permanently corrupted and there is no point trying to rehabilitate it. If the Sexual Left insists on defining gender as “socially constructed roles, behaviors, activities and attributes that a given society considers appropriate for women and men.” We should let them.
Gender isn’t a synonym for sex and we should not use it as one. Gender is a creation of the mind detached from the corporeal. It floats above the material world, like ever changing clouds, constantly reshaping, renaming itself. There are two sexes –male and female. Read more…

Envy and Narcissism

June 20, 2014

Before we add gender identity and expression to anti-discrimination laws and international agreements, it might be a good idea to try to understand what is driving those the law is supposed to protect –the transgendered, transsexuals, transvestites, cross-dressers, drag queens and kings, gender queer, adults and children with gender dysphoria (previously know as gender identity disorder), and autogynephiles (men who are in love with the image of themselves as a woman).
With such a diversity of expressions of gender dysphoria (being unhappy with the sex you were born), no single characteristic could be expected to be applicable to every person who could claim protection under “gender identity and expression” status, but there is reason to consider the possibility that many could be described as being motivated by pathological envy.
