REVIEW OF Rachel Lu, “The LGBT Movement Will Self-Destruct,” The Federalist (May 31, 2016) http://thefederalist.com/2016/05/31/the-lgbt-movement-will-self-destruct/ Rachel Lu begins her controversial thesis by describing the innocuous rise and fall of “inventive spelling,” which proposed liberating options like “girl,” “gurl” and “grrrrl.” This is hardly reason to think that the supremacy of pan-sexuality will disappear as speedily.

Facing a mounting cultural pressure to conform, Christians often receive accusations of bigotry and hate. The Bible offers us a positive, life-giving message of salvation, expressed, in particular, in a life of God-honoring heterosexuality.
Since the 1960s, the Southern Poverty Law Center has served as a self-appointed watchdog to track hate groups such as the Ku Klux Klan and the Aryan Nation. Though its efforts have doubtless been helpful in certain areas, the SPLC’s recent (November 24, 2010) list now includes as “hate groups” thirteen upstanding Christian organizations, accused of propagating “known falsehoods” about gays and lesbians. Is this political posturing, personal animus from a lunatic fringe, or an escalation of the conflict between two irreconcilable worldviews, both of which claim the right to be heard in the public square?
For years I have been seeking terms to identify the enemy of the Christian faith in the modern world, since you cannot engage an enemy until you have clearly identified it. An enemy that describes itself or “frames the issues” will always wear camouflage, and will catch you in a catastrophic ambush. Examples abound. Homosexual […]
Public life is no longer “politics as usual.” At the 1992 Clinton inauguration journalists hailed the “birth of Religious Left.” By 2009, inauguration ceremonies included blessings from a gay bishop; the Religious Left had clearly matured! “We are God’s partners in matters of life and death,” says President Obama about healthcare, while accusing his critics […]
Stolen Identity: The Theft of the Binaryby Joshua Gielow | May 12, 2022
Mark your calendar for September 26th through the 30th, TruthXChange’s 2022 Symposium in the month of September: “Stolen Identity: The Theft of the Binary in Contemporary Society.” “What are your pronouns?” “How do you identify?” These current cultural questions are a restatement of one of the oldest questions of the human race: “Who am I?” Today’s […]
Black Fathers and White Fathersby Dr. Peter Jones | April 22, 2022
Part of Critical Race Theory is the assumption that racism is inevitably related to white male heterosexuality and the oppressive patriarchy that occurs under the selfish rule of powerful father-figures. Thus, the contemporary version of a “man” in U.S. society is “hyper-masculine, straight, and white…the wealthy white male property owner.” So “…we must begin to […]
Still Time to Care About the Whole Gospelby Dr. Peter Jones | March 2, 2022
In his book Still Time to Care (2021), Greg Johnson, an intelligent Christian thinker, seeks to make a valid case for allowing someone who, like himself, is openly same-sex attracted, gay, and celibate to be an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America. Johnson adopts a profoundly orthodox and well exegetically supported view of biblical sexuality. […]
Post-Christian Ideologies at Christian and Secular Collegesby David Talcott | February 24, 2022
For some time now, truthXchange has been warning the church about the inroads that post-Christian ideologies are making into Christian colleges. The pagan worldview that reasserted itself in America in the late 20th century has now incorporated new ideas about sexuality, race, and other hot-button topics. A recent series of articles in mainstream outlets shows just how bad things have […]
