  • The Point: The Moral Shift December 2, 2021
    Not that long ago, what we ate was considered a matter of personal preference. Our sexual behavior, on the other hand, was considered a matter of morality that required regulating. Times have changed.   In every society throughout history, sex has been seen as a moral matter of public concern. A primary reason for that […]

However much someone can be mistaken in their self-understanding, whatever they’ve done to add to their own confusion, they’re still infinitely valuable and worthy of the fullest expressions of our love and care.

  • The Point: A New HHS Mandate December 1, 2021
    The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is crafting a new rule that could force religious employers, insurers, and healthcare providers to pay for and provide, among other things, gender transitions.    The National Catholic Register broke the story.

  • “Pro-Choice” to “Pro-Abortion” December 1, 2021
    Today, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a case that could upend Roe v.

  • God's Pronouns November 30, 2021
    A few weeks ago, I talked about a claim that we should call God “they” since “He” isn’t inclusive enough. A tweet by the Religious News Service recently doubled down on this idea, asserting that Christian churches “lack consensus” about God’s pronouns. Lacks consensus? That’s a strange statement. That only makes sense if 99.99% of […]

  • The Point: Canceling Grades November 29, 2021
    Last week the LA Times reported that, facing soaring rates of D’s and F’s, more schools are simply doing away with grades entirely. Instead, teachers are encouraged to give students little to no homework, move deadlines, and have fewer outcome-driven measurements of achievement.  What’s the rationale behind the move? “By continuing to use century-old grading […]

  • BreakPoint: The Evangelical Fracture November 29, 2021
    Recently in the Atlantic, Peter Wehner argued that the evangelical church is breaking apart. He references the politicization of Covid, the challenge of two contentious elections, and the fact that America is in a bitter partisan divide. Additionally, in June, Mere Orthodoxy columnist Michael Graham suggested that evangelicalism in America is undergoing a “Six-way fracturing.”  […]
