Same-sex Marriage

An Australian girl who was raised by lesbians and supports both same-sex marriage and same-sex parenting is raising her voice for the children of same-sex couples. She believes the same-sex couple should not be able to deprive the child from knowing their other biological parent.  She describes her own longing to know her father and the deep sense of missing something in her life.

The needs of children should trump the desires of adults. Kids deeply long to be in relationship with both of their biological parents, and do best in that environment. They need the influence of both genders.


The Wyoming Commission on Judicial Conduct and Ethics is trying to get a 21 year veteran Wyoming judge removed from the bench for affirming a Biblical sexual ethic and telling a reporter that she would decline to marry a same-sex couple. They claim Judge Ruth Neely is incapable of being unbiased and thus unfit to be a judge. The case is currently being heard by the Wyoming Supreme Court.

Stories like this continue to abound. The trajectory our society is on is for liberals to bully everyone who does not agree with them, literally putting them out of a job for holding what they consider to be the wrong opinion. If that doesn’t scare you, you’re part of the problem, because this sort of fascism and bullying and thought police should scare anyone who loves freedom and believes in free speech.

I’ve been doing a lot of teaching and trying to buy a house.  Obviously, by the dates on my last blog posts, it has prohibited me from doing a lot of blogging.  Here’s some of the major stories from the past month or so that I found disturbing: (more…)

eric_walshGeorgia’s Department of Public Health hired a distinguished California doctor, Eric Walsh (Walsh served on the President’s Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS under Bush and Obama), as a district health doctor.  Georgia officials heard about some controversy over comments Walsh made regarding human sexuality, Islam, and evolution in messages he had preached over the years. They tasked government workers with listening to his sermons, and then decided to fire him because they did not like what he had to say. One official called Walsh and told him “you can’t preach that and work in the field of public health.”[1]  Here’s a well-qualified man who is fired for his personal religious beliefs expressed in a private setting on his own time.  Just remember, gay rights and same-sex marriage won’t affect anyone.



If you don’t agree with the progressive Left, then you don’t deserve an education or a career in social work.  A Christian man in his second year of studies for a degree in social work at Sheffield University in England was dismissed from the program because he quoted a Bible verse against homosex and same-sex marriage on Facebook.

Oh, the tolerance of the Left.  If you don’t agree with our moral point of view, we’ll exclude you.  Such hypocrites.

Just keep repeating what you’ve been told: “Homosexuality and same-sex marriage won’t affect you.”

This isn’t the first time something like this has happened.  See here and here.

Finally, something has been done about the Episcopalian Church’s flagrant acceptance of homosexuality and same-sex marriage in defiance of Church of England’s teaching. The pessimist in me thinks this disciplinary action is not enough, is just delaying the inevitable split of the church, and was probably forced upon the Church of England’s native leaders by its conservative bodies abroad.  I would love to hear the thoughts of anyone living in England or part of the Episcopalian Church.

Kim DavisKim Davis, a clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky, has refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples after the Supreme Court of the United States created a right for same-sex couples to marry in all 50 states (and at this point refuses to issue any marriage licenses at all).  The reason?  It violates her conscience and Christian faith.  She was sued and lost.  A request for a stay on the decision was even sent to the U.S. Supreme Court and denied.  As an elected official, she can’t be fired.  But she can be impeached, fined, and even jailed for her refusal to carry out her state-mandated duties.

I must say that I am amazed Kim Davis is standing alone on this issue. Surely there are thousands of Christians employed across our nation to perform the same job as Kim Davis, and yet Kim Davis is the only person who has the courage to stand by her convictions.  Perhaps others quit in protest, but I imagine that most Christians just went along with the program.
