Phil Robertson

“But from the beginning of creation God made them male and female.  For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” Jesus Christ, Mark 10:6,7

“I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior…my mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together.” Phil Robertson

‘Duck Dynasty’ star Phil Robertson suspended by A&E

  Fox News.com, December 19, 2013

“Duck Dynasty” dad Phil Robertson has been suspended indefinitely by the A&E Network following his recent comments on homosexuality, the network announced Wednesday night.

“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series ‘Duck Dynasty’,” the network said in a statement.

“His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

Earlier Wednesday, Roberston had responded to critics who had slammed him for very graphic statements he made about his preference for heterosexual sex over homosexual sex.

“I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior,” he said in a statement sent to FOX411.

“My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. Continue reading

ENDA

“Robert Knight calls ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act] a ‘gay quota bill’ and describes it as ‘profoundly dangerous’ because it turns ‘private sin into a public right and brings the force of government against morality itself.’  Knight adds that ENDA ‘falsely equates a changeable condition (sexual desire) with race and ethnicity.  Worse, it turns traditional values into a form of bigotry punishable under the law.’”  Bill Muehlenberg

The ENDA Faith, Family and Freedom

Bill Muehlenberg, Culture Watch blog, November 11, 2013

When the radicals want to destroy time-honoured institutions like marriage and family, it is not as easy to do so if they just came out and said they hate 41574_109109195796578_4711473_nthese things and want to see them forever demolished. No, that is still a bit too radical for most people.

So they have to come up with slightly more subtle means by which they can achieve the same ends. And those who want to see religious liberty come to an end also need to be a little more coy in what they are seeking to do. Coming out saying “We despise your religions and are working to completely ban them” might be a bit too stark and obvious.

So the softly, softly approach is the preferred method of destroying the West. Finding nice-sounding policies and seemingly humane legislation – which really are just as dangerous to faith, freedom and family – is clearly the way to go. And the radicals have mastered the art of this, bringing in all sorts of laws that look good on the outside, but are toxic on the inside.

Thus we have hundreds of anti-discrimination laws being passed all the time. Well, that sounds like a pretty decent thing, right? After all, isn’t discrimination bad, and shouldn’t it always be opposed? So a multitude of sins can be covered by simply running with such legislation.

Radical agendas can still be fully implemented by these means, but most people are completely suckered in the process. A primary example of this is ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. This American legislation was just passed by the US Senate. Continue reading

Christian Philosophy Had Better Watch Its Back

“Fifty years ago, no philosopher would have questioned that opposition to homosexual activity is ‘integrally related’ to the status of being a Christian.”  Janie B. Cheaney

“Christian philosophy may be alive and well, but perhaps it had better watch its back.” Ibid.

Philosophical differences

By Janie B. Cheaney – WorldMag.Com – Issue: “School choice,” Aug. 25, 2012

Janie B. CheaneyJanie B. CheaneyPhilosophy association approves a highly discriminatory nondiscrimination policy

The statement reads thus: “The American Philosophical Association rejects as unethical all forms of discrimination based on race, color, religion, political convictions, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender identification or age … [in all] professional activities in which APA members characteristically participate. This includes both discrimination on the basis of status and discrimination on the basis of conduct integrally connected to that status.” The statement, which I don’t have room to quote in full, goes on to define what “integrally connected” means-for example, “sexual conduct expressive of a sexual orientation.”

A sharp-eyed reader will grasp both the central issue and the embedded fallacy. The issue: An institution (such as a Christian college) that refuses hiring on the basis of homosexual practice is thereby discriminatory. The fallacy: If a non-discrimination policy includes religion in its list of protected categories, then any institution religiously opposed to hiring a practicing homosexual is itself discriminated against when its ads are rejected.
