A challenge for abundant life

In a recent video battle against gay activist/sex-advice columnist Dan Savage, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins quoted an old headline: “Dan Savage Explains Why He Started ‘It Gets Better’ Project: ‘When a gay teenager commits suicide, it’s because he can’t picture a life for himself that’s filled with joy,’ columnist tells MTV News.” Incredibly, Perkins used the image of that headline as [...]

Wal-Mart dabbling with the homosexual agenda

U.S. Southern Baptists are expressing concern over Wal-Mart’s dabbling in support of the homosexual agenda. They point out that typing the word “gay” into the company’s online bookstore search engine brings up more than 1,000 titles, including The Gay Disciple: Jesus’s Friend Tells It His Own Way.
