For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
Genesis 2:24 (NIV)
“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
Matthew 19:4-6 (NIV)
Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”
Hebrews 13:4-7 (NIV)
Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
Ephesians 5:22-28 (NIV)
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."
Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV)

(12/21/2019) Hallmark bullied and threatened in name of tolerance. Of course.
(12/21/2019) LGBTQ activists send funeral directors to pastor's home. This is in Great Britain.
(12/16/2019) The Morning Briefing: Hallmark Caves to Wokescolds Who Will Never Watch the Channel. My morning devotions took me to Daniel and the Lions' den. In America, we don't have many Daniels, or even Daniel-lites. What is especially tragic is that standing up to the mob - and making it clear that is what you are doing - is almost certainly a good business decision.
(12/09/2019) Texas teacher says parents 'should not have the final say' in school drag queen event, blasts their 'misguided, bigoted views.' The significance of this is that more and more self-proclaimed "experts" are willing to impose their values on others (you and your children and everyone else) without consent.
(12/07/2019) Texas judge warned over refusal to perform same-sex marriages. This is how the Left gains more and more control over our government and our culture.
(11/29/2019) Family Research Council Calls For Boycott of Chick-fil-A. So the Chick-fil-A foundation not only drops contributions to the Salvation Army and FCA, but actually contributes to one of the most anti-Christian organizations in the country, the SPLC. This is sad, because many, if not most, franchisees signed on because of Chick-fil-A's avowed Christian values. They are going to be harmed far more that the corporation. Hopefully, they will make their opposition to the company's new direction known.
(11/29/2019) More and more transsexuals speaking out over regretful surgeries. The MSM works very hard to suppress any stories that might throw cold water on the progressive agenda. And on this issue, the progressive agenda is doing very great harm and the MSM is complicit. Sadly, this is not the only issue where this is true.
(11/22/2019) As Trans Locker Rooms Spread, Republicans Need To Get Woke On Education Indoctrination Already. We on the right need to respond to the fact that progressives regularly implement their desired policies by means other than the democratic process. They simply do it, and often receive no resistance from those of us (typically a significant majority) who disagree with them. How many teachers "indoctrinate" their students in conservatism? How many even present the conservative perspective as one of several? Very few to none. But plenty are willing to push progressivism, even when it is not official policy. And more and more it is becoming official policy as states are mandating such teaching.
(11/20/2019) ‘My privacy’s being invaded’: Young woman fights back tears after school board decides that male students identifying as female must be allowed in girls’ locker rooms. Just a few years ago, could anyone have believed that this nonsense could happen? The parents should be storm such schools with pitchforks.
(11/20/2019) 10 Years Later, The Manhattan Declaration’s Defense Of Marriage Is Even More Needed. True, dat.
(11/20/2019) 1 Year After Sex Change, This Teen Regrets His ‘Frankenstein Hack Job.’ Yep. This is tragic. And kids aren't merely being allowed to have drugs and surgery that can really mess them up. Many kids are being pushed into it without being warned in advance of all the negative consequences. To call this child abuse is an understatement. Much abuse can, in a sense, be undone. "Gender reassignment" can never be fully undone - especially if surgery was involved. And this is what happens when the latest progressive fads are inserted into medical decision-making. The results are always going to be bad, bad, bad.
(11/18/2019) Chick-fil-A Folds After Sustained LGBTQ Hate Campaign, Abandons Christian Charities. This is sad news. It is also very stupid. They will lose a lot of business and the Left will still hate them and not begin to make up for that lost business. No matter how many times you cave in to the Left, they will never be satisfied and will only demand more and more. I guarantee that the LGBT crowd will now demand that Chick-fil-A donate to LGTB causes. Don't give in to these people. Here is more: A Christian Appeal to Chick-fil-A.
(11/14/2019) GLAAD Demands TV Networks Have 20% of Series Regulars Be LGBT Characters By 2025. Yet they only make up about 3% of the population. However, people actually think they make up more like 30% of the population. Why? Because pretty much every TV show already has LGBT characters. My wife stopped watching HGTV because it seems they have almost as many homosexual couples as heterosexual.
(11/06/2019) Will Gay Rights Trump Religious Freedom? To be blunt, in many cases, it already is.
(10/29/2019) Texas School District Implements Pornographic Sex Education Policy. Read it and weep. This is Austin, of course, but your mind will be boggled. Schools should absolutely not be teaching or promoting this stuff.
(10/29/2019) Frosted Flakes: Kellogg’s Introduces Pro-Gay Breakfast Cereal. It is pretty clear that corporate marketing executives care more about claiming the "woke" mantle than improving their companies' bottom line.
(10/24/2019) LGBT Jesuit Priest Says Bible May Be Wrong About Homosexuality. Father James Martin is at it again. His argument - claiming the Bible was "wrong" about slavery and can therefore be wrong about homosexuality - is bunk. To carry his argument further, the Bible could therefore be wrong about anything and everything. I guess it is up to Father Martin to clue us in. I will grant Martin this: he admits the Bible condemns homosexuality and doesn't give us the old "the Bible doesn't mean what it clearly says" argument.
(10/23/2019) LGBT Activists Demand Businesses Cut Ties With Church After Sermon on Transgender Issues. And at least one business has done just that. Serious question: should we return tit for tat? Should Christians refuse to support businesses that cave in to anti-Christian demands from the LGBT crowd? I believe we should.
(10/19/2019) High school declines free Chick-fil-A lunch, alleges company has anti-LGBTQ 'views.' Note that anti-LGBTQ views simply means the president of the company opposes SSM, as do pretty much everyone reading this comment. We do not hate and we don't discriminate, and we do not appreciate being told what we must think and do.
(10/18/2019) 6 Crazy School District Responses To Parents Mad About LGBT Indoctrination Of Preschoolers. It isn't just that the topics are totally inappropriate for the age of the children, it is that the topics are presented with a 100% progressive spin. In short, they are not informational, as inappropriate as that may be, they are pure indoctrination.
(10/16/2019) Judge torpedoes ban on counseling against same-sex feelings. Good, but there are such bans in many other places, as well.
(10/13/2019) You’re Not Paranoid: The Trans Lobby Really Is Targeting Children. This is really, really sick, and yet it is happening with almost no resistance whatsoever.
(10/12/2019) Democratic Candidates Speak on Christianity’s Compatibility With LGBTQ Issues. Are any of the Democrat candidates willing to simply be tolerant of biblical values? The answer, sadly, is no. I'm not sure that this is a winning issue for them, but sadly, many Christians will vote for the Dem nominee, regardless.
(10/11/2019) How Illinois Schools Teach Preschoolers To Celebrate Transgenderism. This is sick. What is also sick is that children of progressive activists are far more likely to "come out" as transgendered than other kids. So those progressive parents are actively using (and damaging) their children in order to push their agenda.
(10/11/2019) Applauding Child Abuse, Denying Science — The Democrats Put Their Insanity And Cruelty On Display Last Night. Is there no limit to how much pandering they are willing to do? Perhaps it is their confidence that the MSM will cover for them come 2020.
(10/11/2019) Joe Biden Demands SPLC-Style Terror Watchlist to Protect LGBT People. From what?
(10/11/2019) Liz Warren, CNN Cheer the Abuse of 9-Year-Old Children Paraded as Transgender. Sheesh.
(10/11/2019) Beto Vows to Strip Tax-Exempt Status From Churches That Oppose Gay Marriage. Friends, this is what we are dealing with. Or rather, this is what we are ignoring and not dealing with. Beto may be the only candidate stupid enough to actually say this, but plenty of others would be happy to do the same by letting the courts do their dirty work.
(10/09/2019) Ask the Female Rugby Players if Biological Sex is the Same as Perceived Gender. Stop this madness.
(10/09/2019) United Kingdom: Transgender Child “Re-Baptized” By Church Of England As Part Of Transition. Very, very bad for children. How many kids are having their life totally messed up by this nonsense?
(10/09/2019) Minnesota AG Keith Ellison Rips into Religious Freedom: ‘License to Discriminate Against LGBTQ Folks.’ Apparently it is perfectly OK to discriminate against religious folks, no matte what the Constitution says. This is an AG, mind you.
(10/09/2019) What The First Nonbinary American Wants The Supreme Court To Know About Transgenderism. Definitely worth reading.
(10/07/2019) I Spent a Year as a Trans Man. Doctors Failed Me at Every Turn. This is a sad, sad tale.
(10/05/2019) UK ruling on sexuality: Bible 'incompatible with human dignity.' They really are coming after us. This is the UK, but there are plenty of judges, right here in the USA, who will rule the same way.
(10/03/2019) The LGBT Bully Squad Is Coming for Your Church Next. Maybe not next, but they are coming, and the time to start fighting back is now. The more victories they have now, the tougher they are going to be to resist in the future. And they are getting plenty of victories.
