Hatred Leading to a Firing

Hatred Leading to a Firing

This just happened to a friend of mine: Dr. Frank Turek was fired as a vendor for his political and religious views, even though those views were never mentioned or expressed during his work at Cisco.

It’s just that a homosexual manager found out on the web that Frank believes it’s best to maintain the historic legal definition of…

Christians and Gay-Rights Advocates: Hatred or Humanity?

Christians and Gay-Rights Advocates: Hatred or Humanity?

I have just completed a short series on gay-rights advocates and Christians treating one another as humans.

Hate Is Not A Family Value

Hate Is Not A Family Value

Recently posted on the Center For a Just Society website, my thoughts on “Hate Is Not a Family Value,” beginning with, The other day I saw a car displaying the bumper sticker, “Hate is not a family value.” As slogans go, I thought, this one is just about perfect. Packed with emotional impact, in just six short words it exposes the hypocrisy of “family values” proponents. That’s the intent, at any rate, and it works well so long as one…
