Stop praising Pastor Andy Stanley for pretending to love gay people

Reading Time: 4 minutes For the past few days, an out-of-context clip from Pastor Andy Stanley, the leader of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, has been circulating online because he appears to welcome gay people in his church in a way that seems unusual among evangelicals. Some conservative Christians, like the guy tweeting below, are furious that […]

The Church of England will ‘bless’ same-sex couples. It’s utterly meaningless.

Reading Time: 3 minutes The Church of England, in a remarkably progressive move, will finally bless same-sex marriages… would be an incredible thing to have said in 2003. But it’s 20 years later, and this weak attempt at cultural relevancy by a religious denomination struggling to be taken seriously shouldn’t be praised as anything more than a PR campaign. […]

Public libraries aren’t censoring Kirk Cameron. He just wants attention.

Reading Time: 5 minutes In a desperate plea for attention and a pathetic attempt to market his new children’s book, Christian evangelist and former TV star Kirk Cameron claims libraries are censoring him even while welcoming drag queens and hosting LGBTQ-friendly events. Cameron’s publishers at Brave Books told FOX that they reached out to 50 public libraries to see […]

Lying pastor: Bible College students become atheists and infiltrate churches

Reading Time: 3 minutes A right-wing pastor told a right-wing TV host that many students at Bible colleges are becoming atheists, getting jobs at churches anyway, then preaching “wokeness” from the pulpit. And all of this stems from the idea of a transgender Jesus. Good luck connecting those dots. Last week, a research fellow at the University of Cambridge […]

LGBTQ happiness booming in … Bhutan?

Reading Time: 4 minutes The tiny, landlocked Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan would hardly seem a likely haven for an LGBTQ revolution. After all, this mountainous Asian country of fewer than a million inhabitants is far more famous for its arch-conservative Buddhist traditionalism and quaint “Gross National Happiness” (GNH) index than for groundbreaking relaxations of longstanding socio-sexual mores. The GNH is […]

BYU-Idaho may have fired professors for questioning anti-LGBTQ Mormon beliefs

Reading Time: 4 minutes At least two instructors at BYU-Idaho, an affiliate of Brigham Young University in Utah, have been fired for not receiving “ecclesiastical clearance”… but even the instructors have no clue what they did wrong. In 2020, the Mormon Church created an “Ecclesiastical Clearance Office” that was meant to help LDS leaders verify that potential employees at […]
