- Ted Cruz and Donald Trump will be holding an event in Washington, D.C. to oppose the Iran nuclear deal and Glenn Beck will also be participating.
- Bryan Fischer has some “advice to teens on dating.”
- A warning from Scott Lively: “Sexual Orientation Regulations (SORs) (also known as sexual orientation anti-discrimination policies) are the most devious tactic of the LGBT movement for stripping Christians of First Amendment protections and setting the stage for the ‘gay’ takeover of any social, political or cultural entity. These SORs are the seed that contains the entire tree of the homosexual agenda with all of its poisonous fruit.”
- Mat Staver warns that if government officials are not allow to discriminate against gays, then “that’s a completely different America. That’s no longer the shining city on a hill.”
- Finally, BarbWire’s Tristan Emmanuel rails against Christians who think they can reach out to gay activists in “love”: “They are examples of the enemies of Christ … The only kind of ‘love’ these wolves deserve is the full weight of the law bearing down on them and putting them in their rightful place – a place where they have to learn to live, and let live. A place where they should thank their lucky stars that Evangelicals are eminently more tolerant and long suffering then say, they are, or, say, members of ISIS.”
For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars
Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.
