A Theology of Rape in Isis, A Doctrine of Rape on the Campus

“Pursue no woman to her tears.” I found these lovely words in a poem called The Honor Men by James Hay, Jr. More about that below. Today’s pervasive global culture is largely misogynist: men act like brutes and women are driven to tears. For the most part, life in every

Bringing Christmas to the Dark World of Sex Trafficking

No one can imagine how a transcendent God could become human. But maybe you can imagine a smaller picture of the incarnation of God, smaller yet very powerful. I speak of a company of nuns who pose as prostitutes and enter brothels to rescue women and girls trapped in sex

Colorado Springs: Every Human Life Is Precious

The recent tragic and vile shooting at the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood facility has returned abortion to the front and center of the nation’s consciousness.

Homosexuality: America’s Unwanted Export

Western nations once embraced biblical notions of marriage and sexuality. But five or six generations of Darwinism have left the culture in moral disarray. The highest court in the US has elevated homosexuality and same-sex “marriage” to legal status. Of course, given our Yankee pluck, radical change in our domestic policies

A Prophet for Our Generation?

I have often said that the man who mentored me, Francis Schaeffer, was a prophet in our generation. Fifty years ago, he spoke very clearly about where we were as a church and as a culture. He correctly predicted the future. Schaeffer was not a prophet in the sense of

The Feminist Goal is Demeaning to Women

Recently, my wife, Marilyn, drew my attention to an article with the provocative title “How Pro-Choice Women Undermine Feminism” by biochemist, writer and mother Amy Otto. Amy was responding to a column in the New York Times by Katha Pollitt, “How to Really Defend Planned Parenthood.” Pollitt believes pro-abortion feminists
